8.   Have you thought about having more kids?


Casey:  Gerwer Quads

If by thought you mean someone asked and it took me about .0078 seconds to respond with NOOOOOOOOOOO. Then yes, I have thought about it. After taking that insightful moment, the answer is a very firm No. My husband and I completely agree that we are beyond thrilled with what He has given us. I think its great people that can handle more than 4 kids, I just don’t think I’m one of those people. While I do actually mourn the fact that I will never get to have a singleton pregnancy and get to fall asleep with someone on my chest and bond like that, I am quite content with giving my everything to the fantastic four I have right now. And I wouldn’t want to mess with the even number of girls and boys in the house, I’m sure we will have many battles of the sexes here :)

No. We won’t have any more biological children. But, if we ever meet a kiddo out in the world who needs our family, I can see us adopting. :)

Jennifer:  4tunate

The ever loaded question. =) Children are a blessing and we are so thankful for the four lives that God has given us! While the door certainly isn’t closed, our hearts (and hands) are full at the moment!

Suzanne: Steece’s Pieces

When the kids were 6 months old, Joe had a vasectomy. Definitely no more biological children for the Steeces ;) but as we went through our long and painful journey of infertility, Joe and I had been open to the possibility of adoption. That is still something that is on our hearts and if the opportunity presents itself, we would not be opposed to the blessing of adoption.

 

 

9. Has it become more or less as tough as your children have grown older? Why?

 

Casey:  Gerwer Quads

For me tougher on most levels. Though I do enjoy their ability to do things on their own that I ask (IE. go get your socks, put on your shirt, etc), I do not however enjoy their ability to do things that I don’t want them to do (IE. climb up and take stuff off counters, attempt putting an entire tube of toothpaste on their brushes and adjacent mirror, etc.). I will say the activities we do as a family is WAY more fun. The kids get so excited and into things. So cool to see!

Gen:  McNulty Quads

Every age presents a different challenge. Sometimes it’s seems so much harder and then other times, so much easier! The rough patches come and go in phases. However, I will say, life with 4 four year olds (nearly 5), is SO much easier than the early days.

Jennifer:  4tunate

Both!  =)  Certainly the work load has gotten easier from the “survival” days of feedings, diaper changing, and our “Beast” stroller.  However, it’s more mentally challenging and exhausting in several ways.  It’s a HUGE responsibility to parent four 4 year olds at the same time – knowing that they are learning so much through our example.
