DD1 started primary school in 2006 and DS2 will leave in 2019. shock 13 years without a break!

2012 will be lovely though as all 4 DCs will at school together - Reception and Years 3, 5 & 6. smile

I beat you-I did 16 years!

AbbeyA Mon 28-Jul-08 08:23:04

Actually, thinking about it, I had 1 years break so it wasn't continual.

SqueakyPop Mon 28-Jul-08 08:26:02

We had a break when we lived abroad, but it will be 18 year from start to finish.

11 years and hubby says we are not a large family.

He is right reading your amount of years!

We'll be at the infant school in our village for 12 years - dd started nursery there in 2003, ds3 will finish in 2015. They go on to different school afterwards.

dd1 started in 2001. ds2 will leave in 2019. 18 years! Continouously!

Miaou Mon 28-Jul-08 08:34:13

continuously - I was b/fing (that's my excuse wink)

Psychomum5 Mon 28-Jul-08 09:06:26

well, DD1 started school in 1998, and DS2 will go into yr 7 in 2013, so for me it is 15yrs in total!


I have had just one year where DD1, DD2, DD3 and DS1 were all in school together, and then they all changed schools so it has never happened since.

oh, mind you, once DS2 is in yr3 then I will have 3 in the same school for a year.

I've done 13 years so far but have another 9 to go! But then I have a 15 year gap between my oldest and youngest.

Guadalupe Mon 28-Jul-08 09:11:56

Will be 15 or so, have four and five year gaps between mine.

VictorianSqualor Mon 28-Jul-08 09:19:03

Depends on how long I have to wait for number 4, but without number 4 it's 14 years.

TheDuchessOfNorksBride Mon 28-Jul-08 09:45:25

I'm going to have my 40th and 50th birthdays whilst at primary. 2018 sounds so far away... thank the Lord I crammed my 4 children into 6 years or I'd be drawing my pension and child benefit all at once. grin

Gobbledigook Mon 28-Jul-08 09:53:27

11 years - started going in 2004 and will finish in 2015. 3 children but close together in age.

dd1 started primary school in 2002, and ds2 will be starting school in 2012. when he goes to school i will have mine in reception, yr1, yr3, yr7, yr9. so my two eldest will not even be in the same school.

SilentTerror Mon 28-Jul-08 11:13:24

DD1 started 1994,DD3 will finish 2017! So 23 yrs in total,over 4 dcs.I will be 50 when we finish,having felt relatively young in 1994 at 27!

RusselBrussel Mon 28-Jul-08 11:13:58

It will be 11 years, 12 if you include the on-site nursery....

I will be glad once it is done I think...

RusselBrussel Mon 28-Jul-08 11:15:16

oops, sorry, did not see that this was in larger families blush
Only have two dc, but 3 clear school years between them, so spreads it out a bit...

Mamazon Mon 28-Jul-08 11:16:21

ooh what an interesting way of looking at it.
well i started aged 3 in 1983 and my youngest brother will move on to senior school in 2012 so that will be 29 years!

JEEEZ thats a long time

Mamazon Mon 28-Jul-08 11:18:44

oh and just ot add that as there were many many of us in between there was no break in the middle - that really is 29 consequtive years

SilentTerror Mon 28-Jul-08 11:24:45

My 23 yrs will be consecutive.No break! In fact,DD2 leaves yr 6 and DD3 starts reception the following sept!
I will be uber knowledgable re nativity plays,sports days etc!

Twitmonster Mon 28-Jul-08 11:26:25

including nursery 19 years. ds1 will be in yr 5 in september, so I've still got some way to go yet.

I think I worked it out right.
Am not sure though........., any-one?

Mamazon Mon 28-Jul-08 11:29:51

i counted frmo the year i started at school nursary until the year my DB will move to senior school.

Flibbertyjibbet Mon 28-Jul-08 11:32:22

Not sure how many years their are in primary school.
But ds1 will start sept 09 and ds2 start sept 10.
So that will be one set of primary school plus one year.

One of my reasons for wanting children close together - only 1 year of one at school and one at nursery smile

stleger Mon 28-Jul-08 11:44:18

My dd2 finishes next year, which is 13 in total for me. One mum (of 12 children!!!!!and she is so slim and organised and helpful....) has just done 25 years.
