are we a large family? 5 kids is just normal to me, when i hear 'large family' i think they must have about 8
that poem was gorgeous but fortunately we didn't need it- and i so thought we would!
i'm still trying to get my head around having kids at all different stages- boy1 is starting the 'i'm a teenager but think i'm an adult and independent' stage, boy2 is full of 10yr old backchat and in last year of primary school, boy3 doesn't listen AT ALL!, boy4 is about to start kinder, and boy5 is teething!
i think i'll be watching out for posts from you guys to learn from

I've got a broad spectrum myself. This year
DD1 - first year of uni
DD2 - year 11 at TAFE, also studying Cert III TAFE course.
DD3 - year 8, first year of high school
DD4 - year 6, starting band
DD5 - year 4
DD6 - prep
DD7 - 3yo will be home alone.
It is DD7 I am most concerned about. She's been really missing DD6 at preschool last year, so I'm going to have to really concentrate on some more activities with her being the only child at home five days a week.

Thank you for the welcome back Loving6 and yes, I had my DD5, she is one of the lights of my life!! And in case I forgot to say it, Congrats on new bub, it is so wonderful, every pregnancy is a blessing! And that announcement is gold! I have copied and pasted into a folder, hope you dont mind, just in case we have anymore, Id love to, but DH says no, although he still hasnt had the snip like he said he would, so thats good lol. Mine aren't spread out as far as yours, our eldest is about to go into Year 7 and will be 12 in March and the youngest is 1 in March, she was born 6 days before he turned 11! So we've finally doubled up on our birthdays, we have the other 4 in consecutive months surrounding Christmas, always a going on sometime!!

This bub is our double/triple up birthday. It is due on the 1st, ds is on the 4th and mine is the 12th. I always go late so he is mostly likely to come between ds and mine but probably closer to mine. I get the Christmas thing too. We have Nov, Dec and Jan birthday run. Oh then the the end of July, Aug birthday and fathers day and run too. Boy I am bad at planning these things.

Loving6 your kids must love having a large family
My mum has four of us I'm the oldest ages are
Dd(me) - 30
Ds - 25, 26 in feb
Dd - 20, 21 in march
Ds - 9
And than my daughter is 2 and my sister and I are both pregnant
I went in with mum when she gave birth to my brother, I was 21, married and TTC. The midwife thought i was crazy! If I had fallen pregnant when I started TTC my mum and I would of been pregnant at the same time.
She loves large gaps, she thinks I'm crazy to want small gaps with my children but with my age and number of children I want time isn't a luxury
Lots of milestones all at the same time makes for never a dull moment
