    Gosh we've never even thought how old we'll be when our kids move out, I think there's probably a good chance they won't all be out the door right on 18. We plan to start doing foster care though in our 40s when our kids are a bit older.

    The finances of what they need when they get older def come into it. My fella is only 2 and I already feel we need to start saving up for braces, something towards a car for him and his higher education. Times that by 3 or 4 kids and that would def add up!

    We still own property in Melbourne near the uni. I have definitely thought this through!

    Not sure what happens when they tell me they don't want to move 😱

    @HillDweller don't let R&A&H scare you (😜) my social life died in the water with DS2. I found people - even some who had kids (who were obviously easier going than DS2) - very intolerant of the last minute changes/adjustments that often come with some kids!

    I kid you not DS1 once went up 4 shoe sizes in under 6 months 😱
    Ds1 starts work experience next week. He just tried on his special work experience uniform that we brought in January. It too freaking tight. Far out... teens aren't cheap.
