    Girls, have a lovely Easter...you won't hear anything from me for a bit. Holidays start tomorrow & we are going to be busy. Had to have screaming sessions last night & this morning over the state of incomplete projects due today!! I'm sure no one else's kids have ever done that... Luckily I have brothers & I remember them all being exactly like this. "School? Homework? I don't care if I get a zero, I would rather not do it."

    hahahaha Bree- welcome to australia, you would stick pout evn more with your accent I am sure, I love the NZ accent. Not many people have more than 3 kids so people do pay attention when they see so many.

    Look forward to getting to know you.

    Welcome Bree!

    The only reason us Larger family Mums stick out like sore thumbs is because we are so exquisitely beautiful. That's why we have so many kids - we are so gorgeous our hubby's can't stay away!!! LOLOLOLOL!!! Welcome to our little corner of BB and to Australia too!

    Welcome to Australia, Bree! Yes, people are embarrassed to know that we love each other & love babies too...have to say I'm not keen on 10 year olds atm.....I'm looking at my little ones & thinking "are YOU going to be like this too?!"

    Thats so nice of you Moira.

    They are close Bree but thats ok. Mine are spaced over 10 yrs, 5yrs bt 1 and 2, 3 and a half yrs bt 2 and 3 and then only 19mths bt the last 2. We wanted to set ourselves up bf we had our 2nd so Jordan was almost 5 when Josh was born. I have had the big gaps and then the small gaps and they all have pros and cons. I wouldn't have it any other way though.I love the closeness that the two little girls have, but it was great that Jordan was such a big helper when I had Josh and he was able to do hings for himself when Jemma was born.

    It was hard on my body having them close together but now not so bad, they are all good friends and play together well. I have often been asked if I have twins or even triplets because the 4,5,6 year olds are very close in size. Much easier now they are older with a baby, my older kids argue over who is going to change the babys nappy! Who am I to get in their way?
