Do they get excited when you annouce another preg?
Do they feel cheated either in time spent with them or with physical things they want?
Do they ever talk about having lots of kids themselves?

they are always happy and all ways get along. I have 10 kids and pregnant with triplets. B) And I am not making this up. When I first told them I was pregnant they were happy then i told them I was having triplets they were excited. My kids range from 2yrs.-20yrs.

Yes! infact I've asked them if mommy should have another baby in her yummy and the 2 oldest(8,4)say yes! lol April who is 2 says know.. lol good thing she doesn't get to choose! lol

Do they feel cheated either in time spent with them or with physical things they want?

I don't think so. we homeschool and in Alberta we get funding for each child we homeschool and they get to do a LOT of things they wouldn't normally be able to do if they went to PS. We make the effort to spend time individually with child alone and I think we have a pretty good relationship

Do they ever talk about having lots of kids themselves?

Jacob does. lol but Kyler still thinks girls are yucky! lol

My kids would love to have another 1 or 2 siblings (my oldest dd who is 8 says 2 more would be great as long as one of them is a girl)! And Yes time spent with each is an issue. We do our best to give each as much individual time as possible but I think time spent with their siblings is just as important! Where would they learn all the fine arts of annoying Mommy and Daddy and each other !

Happily we are ttc#5 so maybe before I'm 45 I can have those '2 more'.

The only one who wants another baby is Aidan because he is the only boy and he wants a brother. I told him to ask his dad, lol. (My ex-husband)

I really wish I could spend more one-on-one time with each of them and feel guilty for not being able to do so, but then I look at how they will always have a huge bond with their siblings, something I never had. (I only had one brother.)
