You know the new-ish trend on family cars right now is the stick figure decals for each member of your family? They even have ones for pets. While I think this is a cute idea, seeing some of these on other people's cars totally stress me out.
Let me explain.
Did you know that Las Vegas has the largest population of Mormons - outside of Utah - in the nation. If you know anything about their faith, Las Vegas and the Mormon faith is kind of an oxymoron if you ask me but, whatevs.
While I have absolutely NO judgement towards Mormons in general (they are some of the nicest people!), and I'm fascinated by the religion (I've read all the books and never miss an epi of Big Love), I don't think I could ever BE a Mormon. Why? Because they're supposed to have kids......LOTS of kids. It's not uncommon for my hubby and me, while out and about in the Las Vegas burbs, to see huge families- with 7 or 8 kids behind the parents (that were obviously born one right after the other...after the other). Wow.
Anyway, back to the family car decals.....do I still have you?
I pick my boy up from kindergarten every day, and usually we get stuck in the parking lot traffic jam. Sweet. Sometimes I'll get behind this big, dark SUV, and on the back window are the decals of their family.
OMG. The stickers take up the ENTIRE...back...window.
I don't even know how many freakin kids they have -- I haven't actually counted. I see allthose stickers, start to hyperventilate and have to look away.
"Jack! Get the paper bag! Mommy is starting to hyperventilate again!"
Seriously, I think they have like seven kids...and two dogs...and maybe a cat...or something. The stickers are all there.
God bless those big families but...how the hell do they do it?
Or are they just functioning insane? I've been there.
I don't get it. I couldn't get it if I tried. I understand that some parents want big families, but it's just not my thing. My two babies are enough - and sometimes more than enough. My husband had the snippy snip when our daughter was 6 months old. We knew we were done.
So while these stickers are cute and all, those Mormons really need to think about us small-family folks because they could cause an accident.
