:lol: oops! that was definately a typo!!! 3, with the possibility of a 4th LATER!!!! LOL!
Yeah, I figured not right now. Um, because you'd be starting to show. Well, unless you've been having a secret affair you haven't told me about. :lol:
As a family with 6, I don't see "large family" until there are 10 or more children.
9 or 10 will go slightly high.. but it depends over u r family planning..
When I see a family with 4 or more I think it`s a large family.
Yeah this. I get CRAZY looks when I am out with all mine, and yeah I guess when I see other moms with 4 ( or more) I even think to myself, "and I thought my hands were full":lol: I couldn't imagine having more, but I adore those who are so blessed.
I'm one of six and I've always considered myself to be from a large family.
Myself, along with two others are adopted so my parents have 3 blood children.
I have 4, and it doesn't feel like a big family unless we are out in public and I am trying to get them to behave. I know other people in our area perceive us as having a big family though.
5. I have 5 and people comment a lot on so many kids. But then I jumped from 3 to 5 kids and that was when it was "wow - you have a lot of kids". Didn't ever have just 4 for comparison though.
I think anything over 5 children is a large family.
Awwww looking at the date on this, I still had 8 kids
This is kind of OT but for those that have lost a kid, when people ask how many kids you have what do you say? I don't want to leave Eleanore out but when I say 8 kids then say my oldest is 22 and lives on her own and one of our twins passed away, I get oh I'm so sorry and then they ask what happened. I find myself going into TTTS and then having to explain that, and well sometimes I just don't want to.
hrm, there are 7 of us in my house and that seems big to me lol
I have 5 kids and around here that is very unusual as most people have 1 or 2 - maybe 3.
Hugs to you, Mindi. You will always be the mama to eight children.
Can you say that? How many kids do you have? I am mama to 8 kids!
Oh Mindi. Yeah, I would just say "8" and leave it at that unless you want to give more details. :hug:
I am so sorry Mindi.
I would say I have eight kids too. You dont have to explain anything.
Mindi - (((hugs))) - big (((hugs))) - What Chrissy said. 8, and then just explain if you feel like it.
Yeah I could just leave it at that. Sometimes though I get looks when I say 8 and they say 8 KIDS!! How can you handle 8 kids? And I feel like I need to explain some of them away. I don't know why. I need to proudly say YES I have 8 kids!
Thanks you guys!
