"I guess the one I hear the most is, 'You don't seem like you have nine kids, and you don't LOOK like you have nine kids!' as though when you have a big family you must certainly be old, haggard looking, overweight, out of shape, badly dressed, uneducated, uninformed, and a handful of other negative things.
Honestly, having all of these kids has been an amazing motivation for me to take care of myself! If I'm not taking care of myself then how would it be possible to take care of them? I have come to realize that taking care of myself benefits not only myself, but my marriage and my children." — Catey of Random Thoughts From the Zoo
