John Cave Osborne is a writer whose work has appeared on such sites as Babble, TLC, YahooShine, and the Huffington Post. He was also referenced by Jezebel one time, but he’s pretty sure they were making fun of him. While he’s name dropping, it’s only fair to point out that Ashton Kutcher tweeted one of John’s YouTube videos, but it may have only been because Ashton felt sorry for him. After all, John went from carefree bachelor to father of four in just 13 months thanks to marrying a single mom, then quickly conceived triplets. Since then, he and his wife have added one more to the mix, a little boy they named Grand Finale. They all live chaotically in Knoxville, TN with Briggs the dog.

15 Ways Our House Is Like A School Cafeteria

Our house is like a school cafeteria. No, really, it is. Such is the case, I suppose, when you have a tween, a set of (nearly) six-year-old triplets, and a toddler. Lotta ages. Lotta meals. Good times.

Like last week, when Caroline was out of town and yours truly was left to tend to our large brood. During only the second week of school — a time when all of us were still getting used to our new schedules. Especially the triplets, who’d just started kindergarten. But no problem, right?

Wrong. Because this cafeteria employee is used to the evening shift. The whole “on command” breakfast situation threw me for a loop. Not to worry, though, I was a quick study. A versatile one, too. Thus, after a couple quick bowls of cereal, four waffles, and a somewhat-pathetic-but-still-passable turkey sausage initiative — BOOM — we were out the door. Right on time.

Wait. That’s a lie. We were super late, but whatever. We were fed and happy.

Actually, I think there was minor discord, but come on, y’all. What do you think I am? A miracle worker? At least the kids were well fed. Which, after all, is the goal of any good cafeteria, right?

Here are 15 ways our house is like a school cafeteria.
