He's in Steerage Now

Before my husband was lucky enough to find me and my then six kids, he had a job that, for years, took him around the world. During the first conversation my kids had with him, there was no country they could mention that he hadn't visited. And of course, since he was the Northern Hemisphere Regional Manager of an lucrative electronics company, he ALWAYS flew first class.

Well, things have changed. His current job keeps him pretty much in one place, expect for the occasional trip to the regional office in Boston, and now, when we go on vacation, he has to fly in "steerage" (his word) with the rest of us.

And this is how he gets there...

Hi Jen :-)
"Cheaper By The Dozen" does NOT mean that it's cheaper to raise a dozen, than it is to just raise three kids ;-) The 'cheaper' part is that you find 'cheaper' ways to do every-thing!

On the flip-side - the amount of 'special moments' and blessings you accumulate with a family the size of a dozen also far out numbers the ones accumulated with smaller families ....

For the record, yes I realize that you do not *yet have a dozen children. But when you take the number of children still to home and add in the two parents ...

*yet .... I'll know when you again serve him cake in bed for breakfast o;-p
