People often ask me what it’s like having a fourth baby, I usually say that it’s not that different to 3, it’s our crazy extracurricular activities that cause me stress not the fact that I now have a baby as well as three older children. It just worked out that gymnastics and swimming hours for my older children increased at the same time as Charlie was born.
I have found that my washing basket seems constantly full, it’s like a magical refilling basket, that never ends and the house is messier as I have less time, but on the whole Charlie has slotted in perfectly to our mad house. I’m definitely making the most of my scrummy baby boy before I have to return to work and start the search for nursery childcare nearby.
I found this infographic about the cost of a baby really interesting, especially the amount of money I am saving breastfeeding, although it doesn’t take into account my increased cake expenditure to keep me well fuelled!
