How difficult is it to raise 4 Children?

I have been married for 7 years and currently have 3 boys (Ages 3,5,and 7) and my husband and I have been wanting to try to have another baby (hopefully a girl), but not sure if it would be best to try now or wait a couple of years. I know it will be difficult, but I would like your incite on how it is for you and your family if you have 4 children? Is it any different than 3 kids? How did your kids handle it? etc... Thanks in advance!

  • I have 4, 4 and under. 4, twin 2 1/2 year olds, and a 10 month old. I never felt overwhelmed until I hit 4 kids. I'm not saying everyone would have a tough time, but I did. We're adjusting though. Like any change in life, you just have to get used to it and adjust.

  • I have five children, when my children were small I had them help me with the new baby and it all seemed to work itself out and the new baby was excepted.
