    Don't tell anyone. I never told anyone when we were TTC as our first 3 were IVF and we didn't feel like telling people every time. And when I was pregnant with our 4th well it was a bit too late for anyone to say anything. And if they did I'd laugh and agree. Yep we probably are nuts.

    I guess I honestly have no more f---s to give when it comes to my family and other people's opinions. I spent the afternoon chasing my youngest around the park while all the other mums got to hang around and catch up. Yep because I'm the only one with a toddler who went. Some days it does feel like insanity.

    Ladies a question- how do you divide your time/attention on 4 kids as opposed to 3?

    I really can't. 3 are at school all day and the weekends are taken up with sport as are most week nights. I do what I can. Back rubs at bed time, try to only take one child to sport and spend that one on one time then.

    I also work 3 days a week making it hard.

    But it's virtually impossible to find time every day.

    I tend to just let them decide when they need it. They come to me for chats or help with things and I just do it that way.
    I guess that's an advantage of close ages. They usually want similar things. They are all happy for the same book being read, same parks to go to etc. So it makes it easier to give them all attention at the same time, if that makes sense.

    As an example... I do stuff like picking up my 2yo and then chasing the other 3 all over the playground while holding the youngest. They all think it's hilarious and they love it and each feels like they are getting the attention

    Default Those with 4 kids... A few questions.

    I've always said 'what's another potato in the pot' when it comes to our subsequent kids . Honestly, after two, three and four were fine. I honestly found one to two more of a culture shock.
    Our number four is fiercely independent, ditched the day sleeps, pram, anything remotely 'baby' in her eyes, at such a young age that having her (and she was un-planned) was really not the big stress I thought it would be.

    I actually find having the even number handy, as the two older ones pair off and the younger ones pair off, there's noone left out so to speak.

    Dividing my time...haven't really thought about it, it happens as needed and directed by them really.
