    DS1 came along as a big surprise when I was living and working in Europe and had only known DH 3 months. It was the biggest shock as it forced me to stay on to have the baby and deal with his, largely unsupportive, family. But we loved our son and I decided a daughter would make our family complete. When DD1 was born, I decided to move us all back to Australia. Then gave up my career as an accountant (hated my kids in daycare 55 hours per week) and thought, just one more, so I can see what it's like to have a baby in Australia. DS2 was conceived a week after giving up work and i can say having a baby here beats Europe. But I was not finished, I wanted another girl to even it out. DD2 was conceived whilst I was still breastfeeding DS2. Upon having her my life felt complete. Then, after 2 years I thought, maybe just one more... We got twins! I never thought I'd have 6 kids but I couldn't be happier. They are more fulfilling than any career. Sure, the noise is constant and having 3 with mild special needs is a non-stop challenge. But I love the chaos and the cuddles and the smiles and I'm proud I have such 6 beautiful, wonderful kids!
