    I have a fantastic DH who does more than his fair share of helping. Plus we do have some family around although I wouldn't describe their assistance as eager and willing. I have to pay my sister to have the kids, even if it's just for a Dr/Hospital appointment. We have to justify every piece of help we ask for - and if it's just that we need a couple of hours break from work and family then generally we can bugger off...

    It's my Nans funeral next week and I haven't even bothered asking if anyone will have them because I know what the answer will be...

    my family live all over the country....my MIL is about an hour away.....so it's just dh and myself. he is great and since i have big spacing in the kids ages....i have built in baby sitters.....so if i need to run a quick errand.....i can wait till max or sarah get home from school and can run the errand.........and i do get to get out with my girlfriends at night......when ever i need to. Dh and i get out at least once a week by ourselves, too......so it's not so bad. we are our own little support system. LOL!!!

    Hubby and I are our own system and that is ok! No point in getting into it buy my mom has never liked the idea of me having 1 kid let alone now going on 5 so be it! But I love my husband he is the best.

    My DH and I are partners in parenting and always have been. It has allowed us to both work but still have the kids feel like they're not missing out on anything. We don't have any family close (closest is 5 hours away). We do have a couple of friends who will step in and help when we need it.

    All of my family is in Poland . DH's family ( mother and sister) are 10 minutes away, but they barely know the kids' names- they are so un-interested....

    We have each other , we have our 3 oldest kids and we do have great neighbors/friends who are always offering.
