8 Reasons Why Having More Than 2 Kids Is Awesome!

Why Having More than 2 Kids is Awesome via Babble.comIt’s no secret that the husband and I are working on creating our 4th child. We have 3 and they are still relatively young and we’re hoping to add more to the chaos of our lives.

We’ve had mixed reactions to the news. Some people get all shocked and weird when they realize we have 3 kids — then get even more so when they learn we actually want more.

I grew up with 2 brothers and a sister — a family with 4 kids. It’s what I know and I would not have it any other way! It was amazing then and it’s amazing now as I have 3 built-in support people who know me better than anyone else. I am so happy that we have chosen (and have been able to) give my kids the same type of experience and for all the “gasps” we get about our “larger family,” I wonder if people ever stop to look at the positives of having more than 2 kids.

Click through for 8 totally awesome reasons it’s totally awesome to have more than 2 kids:

  • Purchases Get Better Use 5 of 8
    Purchases Get Better Use
    Buy a bed for one kid and it can last until your last kid outgrows it. Clothing gets better life going from one child to the other and there is more justification for the bigger items like purchasing a playset or going on trips.
