Hi!

I'm Jara, 32 year old SAHM to 4 littles. Kaeden is 5. I have 3 year old boy/girl twins, Wyatt and Emerson. Then my newest little is 5 weeks old and her name is Lydia.

I would love to join.. but am unsure if we are considered a large family or not :-)

Thanks!

I think 4 or more is considered a large family.

Forum: Large Families

This forum is for families with four or more kids.


This is how it is described at the top, so you're in (but there's a few with fewer kids wanting to have large families, so it's all good)

Welcome!!!

Welcome! I think as soon as the kids outnumber the parents, you qualify

Welcome! The JM boards say four or more. I have four and I certainly don't consider that a large family. The Duggars are a large family. That being said, I wouldn't dream of leaving.....

Welcome and jump right in!

I agree with Shari...here it's 4 or more but I don't think that's really "large". I keep thinking once I have 5 kids it might be

I have 4 and since I'm constantly tripping over a kid, I think it's large LOL

I think it depends on where you're from. In my town, most people have 2-3 kids, so 4 kids is big, but not large. I find 5+ as large, but maybe that's because it's more than I have!
