15 posts only people from big families will understand

Big families come with big piles of laundry, big stacks of dishes, and lots of laughter.

Did you grow up in a big family? Or do you have a gaggle of your own children? We love our big families and most of what that entails, but there are some parts that are too crazy to not laugh at. Besides, it’s a lot more rewarding to laugh than to sit and cry about it, right?

Can you relate to these posts about #BigFamilyProblems?

10. Your food order is so big, you should probably go inside, but you’d rather contain the chaos

11. Early bird gets the hot water

12. Not only do you run out of water, but now you gotta wash all those dishes

13. You’re not sure if all the dirty clothes belong to your family, or if some extras have moved in

14. So tempting to switch to all paper products

15. Shopping for fun isn’t in the budget

What’s your big family problem? We should all focus on the positive, but there’s nothing wrong with laughing through the hard stuff.
