Me! I'm baking #5 now. I'm 31 and my kids are almost 9, 5, 3 and 15 months. Did you ever think you'd have a large family? I didn't. I thought 3 would be my max.

We have 5 kids, most people consider that to be a large family.  We have three daughters ages 20, 16, and 14; and two sons ages 10 and 9.  Before DH and I got married we decided to have 5 kids.

We have a large family also. We have 5, soon to be 6 children. 4 girls and 2 boys. They are 20, 16, twins that are 9, 10 months and another comming in 12 days. :) I always knew I wanted and felt I would have in between 3-7 children. After our twins came the years seemed to fly by faster and before we knew it we were old and thought we must be done since so many years had passed. But after a conversation with Dh we realized we both still wanted more, time had just gotten away from us. Our daughter is due in 12 days and we have tossed the idea of having just one more after her in about a year. We aren't spring chickens anymore so time is kind of against us plus my age has made for some big complications the last two pregnancies. We know what's ment to be will be, but my gut tells me so strongly their is ment to be one more. Having a big family has been a great blessing. :) sorry the post is so long! Lol

I get comments like that too. When I take all 4 with me to the store people comment that I don't look old enough to have 4, how tired or crazy I must be, and do I know what my carbon footprint is. Lol.

I always wanted a big family. We have 6 kids right now. I birthed a few, adopted a couple, and we have a foster son. I love it. I want to continue adopting/fostering since it is not safe for me to have more children biologically and honestly I don't see a difference. I love being a mother to a big family. This is perfect to me.

Right now we have 4, 12, 14, 15, and 16. We plan to foster to adopt when our children are out of the house. And no. I thought for sure I'd be done with just one.

No...I don't have a big family. It's just me, my husband, and two children. I'm perfectly happy with that. I never wanted a big family. 

Your kids are super adorable though!
