I couldn't find an Introduction thread si thought I'd post in here.

I have 4 boys. My eldest is 9, and has Aspergers. My 2nd is almost 8, my 3rd is 6 (7 in January) and my youngest is 5. I trust I won't get any of the 'you have your hands full' comments wink

Which I endure every day. Along with judgements grin
Except when we went to Italy - we were legends there haha!!

I have a dp.... Not married, and hes not the father of my kids. But they all belong to one dad. And a sorry excuse for one too!

I don't work yet: I used to but when the Autism became a problem I gave up work.

Hoping to find some online friends here, parenting advice and such like smile

Hello. I only have 3 but I get the comments too. Especially when I have my DB with me (he's 13) I'm only 24 so I must look rough if they think I'm his mum grin

I have DS1 who is 7
DD who will be 2 on the 18th
And ds2 who is 18 weeks.

Hello. Between us we have dd(11), ds1(6), stepdd (6) and ds2 (3) and another one arriving any day now. This is the final one, dh is having a vasectomy grin
Been married for almost 4 years now. We both work although I'm on maternity leave at the mo I will be returning late next year.
I don't see our family as especially big but I guess it's more then the conventional 2.

grin at my name!
Hi!!! I've got 4, eldest is 7 in nine days second (and only) boy is 6 in five days. The third (devil child) who's 4 in january and the 'baby' who's 1 also in january. We're a family of 6 and being unlucky, together we've got 4 birthday's in december and 2 in january. I also get the 'oooh how do you do it?' Comments, but i also get asked A LOT how old I am when out with the kids (i've just turned 26 but look no older than 16, sometimes i get asked i.d for bloody scratchcards) and loads of funny looks, especially because i use buses a lot with them on my own, when dp's at work. smile

Wow bigfam you have it worse then me! I will have one in Dec, 2 in Jan and 1 in Feb. I joke I'm like a giant panda and only fertile once a year (in spring!) grin
Love having winter babies though x

bigfam Fri 11-Dec-15 15:04:00

Yep, it seems i'm only fertile around march/april. I'll have to wear padlocked panties in 3 or four months grin
