5 children

I had 5 children today. Ages 5, 4, 3, a new 8 months and almost 4 months. (I will now refer to them as numbers)I watched my three nephews plus my 2 children. I went over to my sister-in-law to play and get to be in charge of the lot while she was gone. At first I thought, I can so do this. This is easy. I should have brought my book.
Then the following happened: #5 woke up and cried and cried. #4 wanted me to hold her, while I was holding #5. I made a bottle for the baby and #4 kept trying to take it. No. 5 told me to shove it. No. 2 and 3 started throwing punches and one neck choke (while I busy with the babies). No. 5-Still crying. No 1 was very helpful. No. 2 came out of the bathroom with no clothes on. Soon #3 had a change of clothes that involved his shorts being on backwards. Ah, good times.

*Did I mention that I had these 5 babies just for 1 hour?

but you did it! and you lived to tell about it. Must have been a stressful hour but maybe next time you'll get to go and your Sister in Law will watch the 5 kids.

Oh Man! What kind of sister-in-law leaves you with 5 kids ages 5 and under?!! Aparently she was out of her mind that day.
