DS is 4 1/2, DD1 is 2 1/2, and DD2 is 8 months old and I'm pregnant again, not sure when I'm due, but they'll all be 5 or under whenever I have this one. I'm not sure how in the world this is going to work out, but I am currently a SAHM and DH works. I miss working though, so I may try to find a part time job again just to help us out and keep me sane. DS is now in school so that helps A LOT and DD2 goes to her dads for a few hours a few days a week, so I think that will help me out a lot.

Mine are 3 1/2, just turned 2, and 6 months...we are hoping to be pregnant in the next few months (pretty sure AF is coming this month) so if all goes the way we planned, I will have an almost 4 1/2 year old, a 2 1/2 year old, 1 year old and a newborn. I was praying for DD1 to go to 4K but that isnt happening so I will have all 4 at home with me, all day (Im also a SAHM). Im just not sure how I will stay out of the looney bin haha.




Do you guys worry at all with the financial aspect of another baby?

Yes, we do, but I'm sure if we manage our money right, get some of our debts paid with income tax we'll be fine.

HI...

I have 5 under 6

Izkoe 6
Ezayoh 5
Dalyla 4
Neya 2
Ezreal 1

Its tough and I am not a stay at home Mom my husband actually stays home with them Its all about routine.. My older kids fight a lot and the 2 babys are really jealous and want attention. We have to split ourselves between 5 kids with homework and Doctor appts and Dentis there is never a dull moment. Its all worth it though =)
