Has anyone here ever read Cheaper by the Dozen by Gilbreth? I remember Adina had to read it in grade school and I picked it up and read it too. It was really inspiring. This family decided to have 12 children and the father of the household was beyond impressive in how he ran his home and his life, how he didn’t want anyone wasting any time, ever. The way he thought and acted, I think I have wished I could be so focused and productive on a day-to-day basis. I should find and reread that book
As an only child, that was one of my favorites to read as a kid. There's a sequel focusing on the mom after the dad died.
