I always knew I was an introvert but I knew it in my bones by the time that fifth or sixth child arrived. At first, I thought it was exhaustion that sent me to my room every afternoon during naptime, no matter how much work I was ignoring. I blamed myself for being so lazy.
But then I remembered: I’m an introvert! And there are people here all the time! No wonder I feel overwhelmed!
Now we have seven children we homeschool. My husband works from home. And there’s me, the introvert. That’s nine people at home: all day, every day.
A girl’s gotta figure out how to cope, right?
