Hey all - I hope you don't mind me sticking my head in here.
I'm curious to know... Did you always want a large family? Did your partner? Or did it just sort of happen?
How do you find it? Do you cope easily with so many children or do you find it difficult not getting any alone time (or do you get alone time?!) How do you ensure your relationship with your partner is maintained?
I don't know why but 7 has always been the number in my head. Now we only have one ds currently, hubby says probably 3...
