With little loudmouth number 5 here, posting may take a pause. I often take all four of the boys shopping to give the lovely and gracious Mrs. Loudmouth some time to herself. It is amazing the looks I get bringing 4 kids into a store let alone those 4 kids being all boys. It's so uncommon nowadays to see large families. I often get asked how we can afford all these loudmouths. I don't worry about it. They are too much fun and such a blessing.
The college bubble is about to pop so I'm not concerned about college. I can say that Maplewoods Community College will be getting a good deal of money in the future and then an affordable local university will some more cash from me. Of course this assumes the little loudmouths pursue a degree in something that will actually pay them and not something useless.
Paying for kids is pretty simple when you have a litter. You wait until one of our local chain stores has a sale in something and you clean them out. When mac and cheese is on sale for 48 cents a box, you clean the place out and come back the next day.
