I'm short, yappy and..... oh, what was that bright shiny thing that just flew past?
Yup. My Grandma, born in 1913, was 1 of 16 kids, 13 of whom lived to adulthood. My uterus aches just thinking of it. No wonder they wanted everyone married off early and out of the house. I've had 2 kids and have barely retained my sanity, and that last pregnancy almost killed me. Whereas my grandma had her last one (of 6) at 45. Jeez.Thank the gods for The Pill, huh?
Can you imagine what the household was like? Madness. Apparently my great grandmother's team used to print a family newspaper. And we always say she was the youngest of seventeen, but there is only fifteen on that list (which I have been able to recite since I was about ten).
