NORWICH, Kan. (AP) _ Imagine having to celebrate the birthdays
of six children in the same day.

Sondra and Eldon Headrick of Norwich face that task Friday, and
they couldn't be happier about it.

The Headricks' sextuplets _ three girls and three boys _ turn 10
Friday. Ethan, Melissa, Grant, Sean, Jaycie and Danielle were born
April 6, 2002, after Sondra underwent fertility treatments to try
and have a sibling for the couple's first child, Aubrianna.

After 10 years of too much laundry and not enough sleep, the
Headricks say their life functions as an ``organized chaos.''

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/Hnlb5u ) the next challenge is paying for braces for all seven of their children.

The couple says they are grateful the children are healthy and
have developed their own personalities.
