Work at Home Mom of Twelve

Hi, my name is Grace and I have twelve kids. I think at this point we could make some type of joke about twelve steps, but we all know as moms of any size family, we are talking about hundreds of times twelve steps and that is just in one day, maybe in one hour! So why am I sitting down and writing a blog instead of throwing in another load of laundry? The best answer I have is because I want to. I hope all of you give yourself permission to do things you want to do as well, and yes, maybe just because YOU want to.

I decided to share my story with you because I have had the opportunity to learn a things along the way that maybe you can learn by reading this instead of by getting
a degree from the school of hard knocks. Hard Knocks University hurts sometimes,so please use any information that you find useful with my blessings.

Having twelve kids takes awhile, so telling you my story will take some time as well.
I know that your time is valuable, and most of us can steal just a few minutes at a time,so I promise to keep these blogs short, and hopefully helpful and entertaining at times.I will wrap this blog up by giving you a short bio:

Married as long as I can remember, maybe longer considering the length of my memory.
Twelve kids, 4 girls, and for those of you who are math experts, that leaves 8 boys.
Stay at home mom since I became a mom
Work at home mom since I became a mom of course, but the other kind of work for a
long time but that will be a topic for another blog. Thanks for checking me out, talk to you soon. Please do me a favor if you have time and fill out my survey. Thanks a bunch.
