I laughed and told them it was for a week.
Of course I had to tell them how many kids I have, which always brings a shocked expression.
So it got me thinking about how much food we buy each month.
I had never really thought about it before - I just buy the food.
*We go through about 40 gallons of milk every month (and that is being conservative - I don't let my kids drink a lot of milk, just water).
*We also go through at least 50 loaves of bread.
Since I make my own 3 loaves at a time, I have to make bread every other day.
*We eat about 200 apples every month, and about 100 carrots.
*I probably do at least 75 loads of laundry every month.
*We (gag down) eat almost 20 pounds of oatmeal every month. (In granola, muffins, pancakes, smoothies, etc.)
*We also go through about 175 diapers every month. (Until we decide to potty train Lea. Not my favorite parenting task, so I will wait awhile.......she's not even 2 for heavens sake!)
Can you imagine how it is at the Duggers house!! They have twice as many kids as I do!!
