    Default new forum: large families

    There are quite a few members with large families, so I thought I'd add a forum for it. We'll define "large" as families with 3+ children.

    Enjoy.

    Well I guess I'll start....
    I have 3 kids 10,8, & 6. Right now we have a friend and his daughter staying with us too so I am a "mom" to 4 kids (for the last 8-9 months)
    I stay at home and am wondering HOW do you manage to feed everyone? I am finding it hard to afford everything food with the recent price increase?

    Hello! I have six children ages 4-13 and homeschool, so am feeding everyone 24/7. I have learned much from these forums. I do a lot of scratch cooking and a lot of couponing, because I can't do it all from scratch (I've learned). Yes, I am definitely feeling the price increases.

    I am a SAHM of four kids... DD Roari 13 and a half, DS Craig 11 and a half (also my diabetic kid), DS Jared 10, and DD Valory 4 and a half.. All the ones with the half year are all born in April... LOL... DH has gotten on the budget bandwagon, and I am trying my best to keep money spending low, and the home nice. Cooking from scratch, and loving every moment I can spend with my kids.

    I have 7
    Emma-15
    Spencer-13
    Connor-12
    Lily-9
    Fletcher-6
    Amelia-4
    Adeline-4mo
    As you all know, feeding them is the trick. My school agers all take lunch so it's a 21 meal week. Anybody know how to slow down teen boys appetites? Dh suggested coffee and cigarettes , LOL.

    Hi, I am Jennifer and I stay home with my 4 kids. I don't really consider us to have a large family, however most other people do. Michael is 9, Emma is 7, Luke is 5 and Claire is 3. We homeschool the oldest 2 and are trying to decide if we will homeschool Luke as well.

    I guess we are a large family! I don't feel like one, since I know people who have twice as many kids as I do. lol

    I have 4, youngest DS is about to turn 3, DD is 8, DS is 11 and oldest DS is 13.
