Mom 2 Seven Bratz?

No, I'm not having twins.


This is my best friend and her family. Yes, these are all her children. Kylie, Kailey, Kelsey, Kevin, Keith, Kyle, Katy, and Kaleb.

Well, she has two out of control 16 yr olds, Kailey and Kelsey, that she cant seem to do anything with. She wants to send them to my house, because my house is very strict.
My 10 and 12 yr old boys have a 6pm bedtime, and my 14yr old girl and 16 yr old son have a 8pm bedtime.
My kids, especially my girl, don't go anywhere, and its very military around here at times. I think my friend needs a break, and maybe keeping the girls for awhile will make them see how good they have it at home.

Now, a little bit of background because I wouldn't just keep any of my friends kids. Me and Flora have been friends since we were 11. That's a 28 year old friendship. She was there when I had a couple of my kids, and I was there when she had a couple of hers. I was there when Kelsey, the said 'rotten teen' was born. Her and my son Ashton (they are 4 months apart) were raised together from infants. My oldest daughter (Tifeni) and her older boys (Kieth and Kyle) were raised together as well. Kieth and Tifeni even graduated together this past year.
I was pregnant for Hunter when she was pregnant for Katy, and I was the first one to hold her Katy when she was born.
So, you see...if it was just a casual friend, I probably wouldn't take on the responsibility, but its not..shes practically family.

Now..to get my husband to agree to it.

I hate my body.

A few years ago, and several years after I had my tubes clamped, I stated having the worst 'day before my period' cramps. Like a seriously bad lower back ache, and ovary pain. Once my period starts, it goes away, and it only lasts about a day.
No, I see no reason to go to the doctor, because I hate doctors. Im just saying, it sucks to be a woman every now and then...or at least every month.

I plan on starting a diet on Feb 2nd. (Not the first because thats my daughters birthday, and cake is involved). I would like to lose a bazillion pounds. Ok, I want to lose 100 pounds and be as thin as a crack whore...or a runway model...same thing.

This is me and my oldest taken last night. He likes to be a complete dork and act like he doesnt have any common sense. Im used to it. Weird thing is, he always has a girlfriend, so chicks must dig that about him.
