I have 3 children. 6.5 years, 3.5 years and 4 months. I am currently struggling to juggle between the baby need and the older kids schools & homeworks. It is not easy, but very rewarding. I do not know really how hard it would be if I have no.4 , would it be harder than 3? Some people said that after the third, it gets easier. How it works? Does the kids tend to occupied themselves or maybe I would have got used to the works and chaos already? I am a bit hesistating. I have lots of pressure from my family that I should not be having more kids. In fact, they had lots of negative feedbacks of the third one. Questions like: Is it accident? Are you sure you want this one? You are out-date mom to have many kids. etc. That makes me feel really upsat. In my heart I know that I will love to have more kids, they are blessings.
I have read a lot of conversations of mums with 4 kids have very efficient morning and evening routines. The mums sound really handling everything so well, I must give a thump up. I just want to know, does most mum handle the tasks all by themselves, or some with the help of their husband, perhaps? My husband was very hands off from the first kid, he did not know what to do. He is getting a bit helpful now. At least change nappy and putting to sleep sometimes. However, some time he could be out of home for couple of weeks. Just want to ask for feedbacks of other mums experience and get some mental supports.
