  • I have 5 kids (10, almost 9, almost 8, 4 1/2 and 2 months).  We're still trying to get in a groove.  Since the baby was born we've moved across country and the kids have started in a new school with a completely new schedule and routine.  We're still working otu the kinks but things seem to run pretty smooth during the week and we just wing it on the weekends.  I'm not much for schedules.  Even with a routine it's still crazy around here.  There's always someone screaming or throwing a fit (my oldest has behavior problems and the 4yo seems to be following suit) and then there's the baby who's been real fussy lately.

  • I only have 2 LO's but my mother has 6 children (4 with my father 2 with her ex-boyfriend) and my step dad has 5. My father has an additional 3. Needless to say things were always crazy at our house, The older kids were always expected to help with cleaning and taking care of the younger kids. Now that the youngest is 18 it's less crazy but my parents currently have 15 grandchildren all under the age of 8! Holidays are nuts!

  • I have 9 kids living in my house, my 8 and a foster son. Some days go as smooth as silk other days it is madness. They also range in age from 19-10 months...it's not just the younger ones that fight, some days I swear my older ones are worse!
