Finally, what I've been trying to tell everyone...

It's actually easier...

couldn't agree more. I have "only" four but have always maintained the leap from none to one was the hardest, after that it gets easier and more fun. Remind me of this in a few years. At the moment I have only one teenager to deal with!

Interesting! I'll have to send it to my BIL with six kids. Not that they don't already know it (like you).

I love the idea of a big family. Mike and I are both eldests of 4; my dad is 3rd of 8, and his parents are each 2nd of 5 & 6. My mother, first of only 2, doesn't have the adult family to lean on the same way.

When we got married, we wanted 4 or 5--alas, this number 3 will be our last. But as mysterious burdens go, it is a light one.

Bridgett~I know. I debated posting this here because I have a lot of readers who went through infertility with me and I know their family size is not limited by choice.

I would LOVE to have a huge family. I grew up without much family and i never really saw myself with a family. Now i wish i had started younger (i started at 32) so i could have ten. I'm still going to try to have three but what i wouldn't give for 5 or more. Such joy in big families. Yes there's more fighting but there's a whole lot more loving and learning too.
