Unusual to have four kids at 30?

Posted by   + Show Post
I was a Walmart and a little old lady on a scooter asked to see Ds ( 4 months) I was wearing him. She said she used to wear her babies too. She asked if he was my first and I said no, he was my fourth. She looked shocked and said, " you must have started in the cradle!" meaning I started having kids really young I guess :). I told her I was 30 and had my first at 22. Thats not particularly young in my opinion. Is it weird to have 4 kids by 30 or just weird to have 4 kids at all? Lol.

I don't think it's weird. I have 4 kids and I'm 29. My youngest is 5 lol. I had my first when DH and I were 19. They are all very close together...I used to get horrible looks when I packed them all around when they were babies. 4 and 3  year old walking, 14 month old in the cart and wearing baby :)

Maybe it's geographical. DH and I have five boys between us and people look at us like we've lost our minds.


Quoting celshep:

I don't think so. I think if you look around, most people nowadays have 3 or more children, and a big portion of the crowd are parents in their late 20's/ early 30's. That's how it is in Kansas anyway. It's also the reason why my father (owns a car dealership) sells so many minivans and can't keep them in stock no matter how many he receives in!


Quoting boysmom5:

I think the days of having big families (as the norm) is gone and people today are curious about people who have more than one or two kids. Curiosity can turn into rude or inappropriate comments for some reason. I don't think 4 kids by the age of 30 is odd.
