Quoting Anja[VBA2C GRAD]:" I've had that last bit a lot, then again when I have to say yeah 2 of them are mine 2 are my step-kids. ... [snip!] ... if I'm having twins so be it kinda thing. It's kinda crazy having this many yeah, but I love it lol. They're all such a joy."
I couldn't imagine it any other way! Is it mild insanity? Absolutely. But I wouldn't change it.
Ah, if they're your stepkids then they're your kids. I remember one time hearing that anyone can give birth to a child, but not everyone can be a mother. And if you're the one who stepped in to raise them, that makes you their Mom.
We're definitely going for 6...My husband talks about having another after number 6, and I'm like, "Buddy, we're at number 5 right now...When we get to 6, we may not be thinking the same way."
Plus I don't want to be having kids into my late thirties. So we're probably done after 6.
