What's it like having a big family? I'm planning on having one and am wondering what your daily life is like?

Really the routine is the same as when I only had one child, everything just takes longer to do and clean up after, and you're outnumbered when things start going wrong

Lucky mother to five!

Messy, loud, yet exciting and fulfilling. Go for it girl!

It's never boring. There's always something to get done (usually mountains of laundry) and something to plan (lots more birthday parties for us). But for me it is 6 x's as rewarding as just having one.

Busy but the most rewarding experience ever. Trying at times, I won't lie. But as trying as it can be its the most wonderful life ever. For us, anyways. Having a large family isn't for everyone, but it is for us.

Oh yeah and there is a never ending pile of laundry, dishes, dirty diapers, toys everywhere, chaos. But also never ending love and cuddles and the rewarding experience of watching your children grow and learn everyday.

Momma to Alex (2005), Cadence, (2008), Ethan (2010), Brayden (2012), and Adrianna Elise due September 19th 2014

Stepmom to two (2006, and 2009).

Thank you for the information. I'm not a mom yet. I want to be in the future. I'm 18 and just started college to become a nurse and I'm engaged to a wonderful guy. I've always wanted 6 kids.
