About Samantha Martin & her Blog
Samantha is a winner of Top 25 Moms with Big Families - 2012
Did you always want a big family? If not, when did you change your mind?
Not really, but I always wanted to have some kids. After you have about 3 kids you discover that one or two more isn't really going to be much more work. At any rate, we just kept having them and now we couldn't imagine having a small family!
What's a common misconception about big families?
I am often asked how we afford so many kids. People assume you must be a doctor or something! In reality many large families just do more with less. We do not eat out often and vacations are not an every year event. We spend lots of time at home and swimming at the lake or spending summers with cousins and friends.
Clothes tend to pass down and rooms are shared by siblings. We don't have as much material possessions but we make up for it with everything else!
How many children do you have? What's the age difference between the oldest and youngest?
We have seven. The oldest is 16 years old and the youngest will be 2 in about a month. Hmmm...we might actually be due for another baby soon:-)
