Now that I am preg with baby #5, I am realizing I have got to have some thick skin. A lot of people are pretty rude when it comes to large families. I have ALWAYS wanted lots of kids. Mostly due to my nature and that I am the oldest of six chlidren (and also have a very large extended family) along with a good part being religious beliefs and wanting to do what I believe to be the right thing. I have always admired those with large families because clearly it is not an easy thing to accomplish.
What made you all decide that you wanted to have a large family? Did you always know?
