Today I asked my children what their favourite thing about having a lot of siblings is. I didn’t give them time to think – just tell me what comes into your head. Here are their answers…
16-year-old daughter – When everyone piles into the house after being out, and someone’s singing off-key, and everyone’s bustling around…
14-year-old son – Something is always happening.
12-year-old son – There’s always a baby around
11-year-old daughter – Everyone is obsessed with their own thing. So if I want to do a certain thing someone will be interested in doing it with me.
9-year-old daughter – It’s nice to play with the little ones, and the older ones buy us stuff.
7-year-old son – Always someone to play with
4-year-old son – I like giving presents.
2-year-old son – I’m speaking for what I think Jonah would say – Everyone spoils me, caters to my every whim and generally has confirmed my belief that the sun rises and sets on me.
Some pictures through the years.
