I thought that we would acclimate Kristina into our family without much change at all. There are so many of us that I thought, "what's one more right?"
Our new addition, however, has caused us to do a bit of adjusting--in more ways than one. Here are a few funny things that we have encountered so far.
It first hit me that some things just aren't going to be the same when I was grocery shopping and realized that my brand of breakfast sausages only came six to a pack. Now I am off mathematically! Also, when we dine out the gratuity is automatically included in our bill as if we are a party of people or something. There are no additional legal seating options left in our car. When I cook breakfast I use eighteen eggs and an entire pack of bacon. Our washing machine broke so we went to the laundry mat to do our clothes. We occupied fifteen washing machines (almost the entire laundry mat)!! We take up a pew and a quarter at church and a whole block when we ride our bikes. There are a few perks that we now have as well. If we use the hair cut card that you get stamped for each cut, we automatically qualify for a free cut. And if we go to get ice cream we use up all the stamps in one shot, immediately qualifying us for a free cone.
