How do you pronounce your last name? 
Li-Prant. Much simpler than it looks. 

Are you done having kids?
This is a totally personal question that is almost never appropriate to ask. But we're friends, so I'll tell you straight up. Yes and no. I'm done telling God what to do with my life. I don't think we'll have any more, but really, what do I know?

Who cuts Sweet B's hair? 
My fabulous friend Kate. If you're local, email me and I'll get you in touch. 

Have you always stayed at home with your kids?
Nope. For a brief while I was a hot-shot saleswoman.

Are they all yours? 
Every blessed one.

Do you still have chickens?

No! It is tragic and I don't like to talk about. You can read all about the terrible sadness here. Or you can read up about when we had our beautiful hens here.

How do you do it all? 
Bahahahahahahaha! Read this. 

Where did you get the rug in your dining room?
Craigslist. This answer applies to about 70% of the things in my home. Another 20% are hand-me-downs from family members and the last 10% are things we've purchased brand-spanking new from a store.

Will Uncle Tonny come do work on my house? 
Probably not. But if you're seriously curious email me and I'll hook you up. 

Did you always want a big family? 
Nope. I didn't want kids ever. Then sometime in college I thought I might adopt, because childbirth = ew and ow. Things change. Hold your opinions lightly. 

Why do you homeschool? 
This post. And because I (usually) like not leaving the house. 

Can I come over? 
Please do!! Bring coffee and be prepared to read to my kids. 


  1. I just read this page for the first time and I'm seriously about to pee myself laughing. I love your sense of humor!

  2. Link up with Forme_Women on FB - Annie F Downs is coming to Lawrenceville!! Eeek!!!

  3. I along with Wendi chuckled all the way through your post. I'm a great grandma of tons of kids and have lived your experiences plus, with the exception of home schooling. Actually there wasn't home schooling in those days but because I didn't trust all those strangers in the schools or the PTA, I taught my girls what I thought they needed to know and they knew my word (after God) was the ultimate authority. I made several trips to the principal with my opinion (respectfully but with full impact) because after all these 3 girls I raised were precious people in my life. Now I have 14 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren and one more on the way (how blessed am I!) I honor you because of your dedication to teach your children, after all, that's why we are parents. It's not always easy but it's always worth it. I truly believe God will forgive you a few swear words (but for the sake on not being embarassed too often, not too many). Loved your post and will share with my kiddos who are in the same place as you.
