How big of a difference was it for you financially to jump from 4 kids to 5 to 6 or even 7?
How hard was it to do things, i.e-family vacations, go out to places, etc...?
And how much harder is it taking care of a lot of children? I have heard that once you get past 3 kids,you can't even tell the difference!??
Lots of momma's out there have lots of questions like these!



This is an official thread for moms with 4+ kids to come and chat, come and vent, come to brag or even relate with other moms.
(this includes ladies that have three kiddos and are pregnant with a fourth [or fifth if you're expecting twins])
Feel free to show off pictures!
Feel free to invite other moms with 4+ kids!!
All I ask is NO DRAMA.
Enjoy ladies!! :D




Official siggy for thread--feel free to snag and post on your profile :D

Money wise shopping trips are interesting but its not much more at all when it comes to money

We both come from big ol' families...we don't feel right without a bunch of kiddos running around, lol.



We have four, and have decided to start on baby number 5, we are both getting up there in age (both of us are 31, turn 32 this year) so we don't want to risk the genetic defects you could get the older you are having children as well my body being older and having a hard time handling pregnancy.
We are doing good right now financially, but hubby is a guru about putting everything down in writing, sorting through figures and having it all on paper how much this is going to cost/set us back, etc.....
The money is the only con we've come up with so far.



I am just looking for opinions from those who are going through it...hopefully positive opinions, lol.

Im 23 years old but even with that I still worry about the genetic factors and such
but family is the best investment you can make esp if you raise them right
If you are smart about money it should never be a factor
we never waste and when it comes to food all of it gets eaten

Doesn't sound bad at all...hubby and I had this almost exact same talk when we conversed about all of this!
