Did I say every year? I didn’t say their ages and how many but it’s most definitely not even close to every year.

You have several. They’re under four. You’re pregnant. I’m no mathematician but…

My kids are older and they still do not entertain themselves, they spend a lot of time fighting.

Spacing kids doesn't help either. Mine are spaced because of IF and I'm left with a few "only" children.

I will agree that the physically draining stuff gets easier as they get older but the emotional stuff gets harder.

Happy to hear some people's kids stop being hard at some point. Iyh by all of us.

You didn't put them on the wrong path. My DH put his kids in RW schools and they're barely frum now in their 20s, 1 completely atheist and not frum at all.
That's not a guarantee.




Thank you for your perspective!
I know this is off topic, but I appreciate you posting this .

Again, who said I’m not using bc and spacing my kids out? I have a 2 and 3 year gap between each already and definitely made use of bc. Little kids are still challenging even with bc.

Kids doesn’t equal several. I have 2 and pregnant with a 3rd and there is 2 and 3 year gaps between each.

This is so funny that this became an assumption of an overwhelmed mom not taking bc when that is not the case here. Even with gaps of 2 and 3 years which is what I have, once you have 2 kids and pregnant it can still be very challenging and it doesn’t mean that I’m having a baby every year.
