Faye Lippitt is a journalist who found her inspiration in the happy chaos that enveloped their home as she and her husband raised their six children. The six arrived in eight years, sometimes arriving two by two, which made for interesting times.

This book is a series of snapshots of the family at their home in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies. It is also about choices. As Faye puts it, when chaos rains, your response is your choice. Laugh? Cringe? Cry? Laughter feels a whole lot better.

It’s the author’s hope that busy parents will steal five minutes of the day to read one of the stories, and another five to write their own in the back pages of the book. For time flies, and memories fade and the things our children do and say are crazy enough and precious enough to keep forever.

Faye, and her husband Greg, now live in the Caribbean and are blessed with enough grandchildren to keep the laughter coming. 

Faye Lippitt (nee Alexander) was born and raised in Calgary Alberta and educated at University of Calgary (BA English 1975). She is a columnist and freelance journalist. 

Faye and her husband Greg crammed their family of six children into eight years by having two sets of twins in the mix. There was turmoil. There was noise. And there was always something to laugh about. And write about.

When Greg and Faye left Canada for sunnier climes in the Caribbean, she compiled the articles and thoughts written over twenty years into this book, named after just one of the adventures of one busy family.
