Ken Craig recently announced on his blog that he and is wife are expecting their 8th child. They recognize that this is not normal in this day and age. Ken cites comedian Jim Gaffigan, father of 5, who said, “Big families are like waterbed stores. They used to be everywhere, now they’re just weird.”
Despite that, Ken reports that nothing makes him happier than his family. At the same time, he acknowledges that a large family comes with a special set of challenges, like getting somewhere — anywhere — on time:
And if you are supposed to be somewhere at 8:00 a.m., it doesn’t matter if you start getting ready to leave the Tuesday before, you will not make it before 8:12 a.m., as you will get halfway there before you have to turn around and go back because somebody is not wearing shoes, or socks, or pants. And you just pray it is one of the children and not you.
