DS 9, DD 7, DD 4
4 kids are alot of work. no one told me how hard it would be.
The washing, the housework, the cost of food and clothing.
But i feel i am doing pretty good. My kids are now 5, 3, and the twins just turned 1. I get snowed under and feel down about how the house sometimes looks like a tornado has hit it, but then when i see the kids having fun, i figure who really gives a rats about it right now.
I am sure if you have a partner who is willing to help you out with some housework and stuff (mine really is a lazy bum) then oyu could easily handle it. You manage with 3, whats one more right?? lol
Hi there well as my title says, I wanna know what its really like going from 3 to 4 children. The good & the bad stories. I already have DS8, DD6 & DD3, i must admit having the 3 i have now at the age they are now is very manageable (2 are at school). But my husband has been at me for a year now to have another bub. Its not that i dont nessesarily want another bub but i just think of all the time a newborn takes up & dont think i could deal with that again. From what i have been reading on the internet (many sites) people are saying that if you have 3 then having 4 is a breeze cause you are used to the noise & chaos. My husband also works very long hours, leaving home at 5am & getting home around 7pm 6 days a week, so i would be "on my own" alot. Please help me make my final decision!!!
If you dont want to do it then dont. You are the one who has to stay home, stay awake, be the milking cow, taxi, pantry stocker, chef and cleaner. Its all on you while your DH goes to work. Really i reckon its your choice. Oh and did i mention the incubator? smile

I have 4 children 7, 5 (twins) and 22 weeks. The last one was complete surprise but we are managing. It is really hard with all the running around. School runs, kinder runs, music lessons, dance classes and swimming lessons!!!!! Yes it is expensive and we struggle at times but we seem to manage. The worst part is the twins, having to buy clothes,shoes birthday presents, uniforms for 2 at the same time can be hard. The first 3 were IVF babies so when we found out I was pregnant with baby no 4 it was a complete shock but a good one...just one piece of advise, buy or hire a capsule.. with all the running around getting in and out of the car the baby will be able to stay asleep.
Its hard work at first but does get easier...lol....sometimes!!!
