Three....Four....What's the Difference?

I've always heard people say (people who have at least four children) that four is really no harder than three.  Of course those people lied to me who told me that three was no harder than two because I'm about to let you in on a little secret...

IT IS!!!

Much, much harder.  You're outnumbered, outwitted, they can all run faster than you and you'll never eat a hot meal again.  But I digress.

Over the weekend my five-year-old nephew was in town, so we had four children under one roof, ages 3, 4, 5, and 6.

And it was seriously O.K.


It was like Lionel Ritchie, "All Night Long"....but it was Ok!

So for any of my blogging partners readers out there considering number four, I say go for it!  I cute is this?

Ha! My dear teacher-friend and mother of 4 will always say that 4 is easier! Throw Jakob in the mix and she says the more the merrier... I am of course not the one to know and I am stopping right here with one. Afterall he's been plenty of excitement and if all that extra fun came pre-30, just imagine how exciting of a pregnancy I'd have at my advanced maternal age!

Hope all of you are well! Keep me posted on Miss Catherine's happenings!

When I saw the title pop up on my facebook, I thought maybe you were making an announcement ;)

Yes, I've heard that little saying through the years. As a mother of five, starting when I was age 31, I would greatly disagree! Each child adds more work, more disciplining, more laundry, more food, more conversations, more school tuition, more responsibility, more prayer... and of course, more loving! And as each one leaves the nest, even if only for the weekend, there is a big hole. The whole dynamics of the family changes, depending on who is in the house at any given time. And no matter the conflicts and disagreements and personality clashes, reunion time is a happy and wonderful experience for all! Three... four... is there a difference? Definitely yes! Is it worth it? Definitely yes!

And what could be better than four children than having a fifth?
