View Full Version : I take my hat off
To families with multiple children and also to families of multiples (twins etc).
My hubby and I had his sisters kids over the weekend (at their house) from 7:00 am Saturday morning to 4:00 pm today. I actually had prior plans so he had them on his own for a bit - god bless him!
We had a four year old (nephew) 2 x 21 month old (nieces - twins) and our 15 month old.
Absolutely wrecked and could do with tomorrow off!
I 'may' have been thinking about no. 2 but that 'may' be on hold for a little while yet :)
I don't know how they do it either. 2 singletons run me ragged, I am blown away how parents of twins and even trips manage to survive lol
I'm knackered with just one!! I'm a bit scared to have another!!
I hear you deelee!
DH and I are umming and arring about no2. But I just don't think I have it in me.
We had sils
We had sils kids over night this weekend (aged 12, 10 & 8) and I STILL struggled! :o
I have a 6 week old and a 20 month old and my days with just one were soooo easy in comparison. I'm seriously considering not having any more. Not sure how I'd cope with twins or trips, you guys are awesome!
I couldn't do 2.....I like my "me time" to much..I watch my friends with 2..they look soooo tired!!!!
never mind twin s/trips YIKES!!!!!
I have two and am a single parent and I love it! But it is exhausting trying to balance everything.
But I could never do more than two, single or not!
the girls mum
Yep - I have one dd - 3 - and a bun in the oven - a bit scared haha.
2 is my MAX limit and I was soooo petrified I had twins in here bahahahah - confirmed its just the one!! :hyper:
it is so very different when they're your own imo. i have 4, my youngest was born 12days after my oldest turned 5.. so there were small gaps inbetween :)
and even now today i have the girls all at school and just my 2.5yr old son home.. and im looking after my friends son whos the same age and my god.. i had to go food shopping and it was chaos! lol.
then 4 days a week i have an extra i pick up from school till dinner time.
i just think its very different when they're your own :) so dont let it put you off :)
I agree mummaof4!! :)
I have seven :yes:
3 at school, 1 in transition two days a week, and 1 in pre-school two days a week :)
I'm busy, sure, but I love it and wouldn't change it for the world :goodvibes:
hi, I had my busy times, and I had a hubby who was away with work a lot, but I managed. They are all adults now, and it is just wonderful. I look back and think 'how did I do that??" !!!! :cheerleader1::cheerleader1: cheers to me, Marie.
Yes def diff with other peeps kids!
Just had my DS first playdate after school on for 1.5hrs and I was exhausted entertaining them!!!
So so much easier with more of your own, I'm really happy with two, if they are both sick unwell or we go out somwhere they can have one of us (me n DH) each!!
