I'd already been thinking about this as it's weighing into any decision about having a third, but I noticed in the thread about out of school activities some parents with a lot of children have their kids doing a lot of activities and I'm wondering how you manage it.
Do you need to set a limit to the activities per child (so they feel like they are greatly missing out)?
Does one of you bear the bulk of the load running them around or do you and your partner share it? Do you think your children would do more/less if it was the other way around?
Can/do your other children stay home while you run one of them around or do they all get dragged everywhere?
DD is in her 1st year of full time school and doing dance 2 nights a week (tap & jazz) and swimming on Saturdays. Swimming is a not-negotiable for me, all my chilren will be in lessons until they can swim a 25m pool freestyle and backstroke. The dance though I figure she's still trying things out to see what she prefers (loves both though - eek!) while no2 is still little and portable.
