Hello Moms of 4. I have 3 boy's, Peyton 7, Reed 4 (will be turing 5 next month). Crosby soon to be 7 months. Well I recently had a baby and just found out 3 days ago we are having one more. This was not the plan and my husband was to "busy" to make the appt to prevent this. Well, he certainly will be busy now. I am nervous and scared. We had the financial thing worked out (we thought). We both work fulltime and my Mom takes care of the kids when they are not in school. So basically she stays with them all the time. She loves it but in no way can take care of a 15 month old and a newborn. So, I am going to have to stop working and I am terrified that we are going to drown. Does anyone have any words of advice or encouragement. I feel VERY blessed to have another child and know that it will all work out. God has a plan and I have to trust that he knows what is right for us as a family. I have a VERY supportive family and friends and the boy;s are excited. Well, the oldest 2. I know in a few years this will all be routine and we will be so thankful we have 4 but right now I am trying to see thru the clouds.
