Wow, I just came in here to lurk and to my encouragement found out I'm not crazy and I'm not the only one. I have a 4 year old, 2 year old and 10 month old and we are currently trying for another. So far, most people around me think we are out of our minds. Some even get mad at me. The other day I went to the dollar store to buy some ovolation test and I was wearing the baby on me, had my 2 year old in the cart and my 4 year old beside me. I brought like three or four ovolation test and the woman at the cashier looked at me and each of the kids and shook her head. She kinda knows me, we shop there often, but she said, I can't believe you want more. She was shocked. That's how most peope react. To me it's so normal. Children are a blessing from God. The more the better.

owh and just wondering, I'm not use to all the symbolic lango. What does ttc and cc stand for and some of the other symbols used in this group?

Hi,
nope you are not alone. I am not on here much, but I do come for encouragement. I just had my dollar tree lady do the same thing!! Where do you live... Just kidding. She said "your not gonna be like that Kate are you" Little did she know the test is positive and it's our eighth! My little ones range from 12 to 16 months. Welcome.

Oh yeah, ttc is trying to concieve. Not sure about cc.

Rebecca

I'm ttc # 4 and the same thing has happened to me. I just think that in today's world, people are so stuck on the idea of the nucular family that they can't look past it and see the way we do!

I was pregnant with my third and people were like "you do know what causes that right". I am so amazed. People think we have a boy and a girl so we must stop. I want a third still but we are waiting because of our loss. I wish you all the best. I am probably not going past three I just couldn't afford the daycare but I admire all you ladies that can have big families. I love children and being a mom.

We are just starting to TTC #4, and I have already had people ask if we were crazy. I don't understand their thinking! I come from a family of 6 children, my fiance comes from a family of 4 children and my ex-hubby comes from a family of 7 kids... not strange to me!!! I feel the more the merrier!!
