I have 5 kids...My eldest is 14 girl in 3rd year high School, my 2nd is a boy 13 1st year High School, the 3rd is a boy also 9 on his 4th grade, and 4th is another boy 5 in kinder, and youngest is 3 girl. I love my kids they are my life and joy..My eldest is like a sister to me since our age is not that far and we share our clothes and shoes..since we're the same size...I watch tv shows with them, help them out with their assignments and try my best to be there for all of them when they need me most..We dance, we sing and do lots of things together even in my busy hours.I even play with them especially when they have new toys to play with...Tell me somethin' about your kids..I'd love to hear your stories about them.

my smiling baby girl - This is my youngest showing off her new teeth she got on Christmas.
I have 4 kids. My oldest is a girl. She is 6 1/2 and in 1st grade. She is a smart little thing--too smart for her own good sometimes. She is a great reader and I have to push her to read more at her level because the stuff she brings home from school is way too easy for her (she is at about a 3rd grade level--at the least). My son is 5 (not in school yet) and is a perfectionist. If he can't do something the way he thinks it should be done he gets really upset. He is also a sweetie boy and adores his baby sister. My middle daughter is 4 and is so sweet. She lets everyone walk all over her all the time because she is just too nice. She never gets to play her way or with her toys because her brother and sister take over all the time and she just lets them. She was the baby of the family for 3 1/2 years and it shows because she is a bit spoiled by us all. She has a speech delay because the older kids always talked for her so she never really learned to communicate for herself (she was 16 months when she finally said her first word and didn't really talk until she was 2). The baby is another girl (my poor son has 3 sisters) and will be 10 months old next week. She is a little stinker and is the center of the house. My son adores her and they have a special bond I have never seen with brothers and sisters. She is getting close to taking her first step (she can stand for a long time by herself). She hasn't said her first word yet but jabbers on a lot. She is the most ticklish baby I have ever seen and her laugh is infectious. And she likes to blow raspberries if you blow in her face. She is just so cute.

I have 5 children too! My oldest son will be 20 in a few days and my youngest son is 12. My daughters are 18, 15 and 2. I spend a lot of time with my children and we do all kinds of things together. My boys like when I play video and computer games with them and the girls well they love to shop and do the girly things. My 2 year daughter gets most of my attention. We play, read, paint, draw and spend a lot of time at the park.

Oh cool...Your kids are big already so your youngest is soo lucky she gets all the attention intended for her..hhehe...My youngest is who I give mostly my attention to because I really wanted a girl. After I got 3 boys after my eldest daughter I thought I would never get a girl again but there she came...my little princess..:)

I agree with you. Eversince I had my daughter (and now I have a son already), I've been living my life centered to them. They're my everything, and I would put them ahead of me. Their needs first, before mine. I do not know what i'd do without them. I feel so lucky to have 2 adorable kids. Everything that I do, is for them. I actually quit my job to stay at home and be there for them at all times, and watch them grow. :)

5 kids?!?! Wow...and your still sane... congratulations.. lol...I have only 2... well I have 3 but my eldest is down south w/ her fathers family. The two that I have at home (my boy is 9 and my girl is 7) keep me on my toes to say the least. But, like you said, they are my life. Every decision I make in my life is made based on what's best for them. I was asked by someone a couple of weeks ago to write up a list of my goals. And when I was done, she commented that out of the 12 goals I came up with.... only 3 were actually for me.. the rest were for my kids. I want so much for them to have everything in life that I didn't and am so afraid that I'm not going to be able to provide them with it. Keeps me stressed to say the least but it's so worth it at the end of the day when I'm off to bed and my last action of the day is to go in and watch them sleep. We may go without alot of lifes finer things but we aren't short of love.

We cannot take away being mad at our kids at times when they are behaving badly...I love my kids and when I discipline them it is for their own good. Thanks for the comment.

you are lucky you have 5 good kids and let me tell you- your kids are so lucky for having a mother like you. i am not yet married and with no kids as well. but my mom had been always been there for my two younger siblings and i all the time even if she used to work for the government before. she comes home tired and yet, she finds time to spend with us. up to now, i am 28 and i have a 27 and 18 year old brothers, she still watch television with us, sings with us, watch movies with us and whenever we're watching anime, she also watches with us. we have lots of bonding moments together even up to now that's why we're really close to her and we love her much.

wow, five kids,must be tough, I get tired with my two. I love them so much that if i star bragging about them I wont stop. I keep remebering their ventures day after day and keep boring people with my narrations that what my hubby says. Like I was feeding my daughter who is seven month old today some porridge, I had made for her. She started putting hr toys in her mouth, so I said a little sternly "no.....ooo" but then I realised she had previously started really crying whn she had heard nop for the first time. SO to soothe her I added " no please do not put them in your mouth they will become dirty na" You know next thing what happened is I see her raise her head, look at me with a toothless smile and phrrrr....I had all the porridge splashed all over my face and glasses. So much for training her. I could not help laughing at her. My son is now seven year old and a darling, he is a big help whenit comes to taking care of his siter and she is in total admiration of her brother. I keep saying she wil grow up to be a tom boy as already she insists on sitting between his legs on the skateboard which he must push around wth her in his lap. God I have started off again, I will jsut finish it up here, I just can not stop when it comes to my kids, my whole world revolves around them.
