Hi, I'm a mum of a 7 year old boy and a 4 and a half year old boy. We're thinking of trying for another one but were unsure how our boys will cope and it means me sticking in my part time job in retail... What are ur thoughts?

I love children. Have a two and a half space between the older 5 kids. Then a 5 year gap. and a year gap between the last three kids.
Discuss bringing in another child with your kids. tell them how much you love them and how that inspires you to bring home another child to complete the family.
We decided with our children to foster the one before last. We sat together and talked about how our family works together. It was an important decision because the baby was born with downs syndrome and left in the hospital. It was my oldest daughter that requested we take this child home. M is amazing and we love him so much. He is definitely one of us. Our youngest baby girl came as a terrific surprise. A wonderful gift for M. They are like twins.
Every time I have a baby every child gets a gift. It worked out that all my girls are born in June and the Boys in December. So it is their birthday anyway. Only M was born in June but could come home only in September because he was a preemie.

Think I'm more worried about my eldest feeling left out as he's seven this year. I had a nine year age gap with my brother and we never really entertained each other cos of the diff stages of life we were at!
