If you have 3-5+ kids, do you ever consider the feelings of the oldest children when you decide to become pregnant again? Do the older kids welcome a new sibling or are they over it? This is being asked out of total curiousity and not meant to be mean or snide. The reason I ask is the an acquaintence is pregnant with #6. Her oldest is only 12. Her oldest 2, a boy and a girl, 12 & 10, are great big with the little ones, but during their time playing, they spend alot of time helping the 2 little ones who are only 1 and 2.5. Now that mom has announced baby #6 is on the way, I can't help but wonder if the oldest are dreading it a bit because it will mean more work for them.
