Hi everybody!

I have a 14year old and a 3year old !! Both boys !
When we had our first one we decided that one is enough for us but then I got clucky and we had a the little one so they were both planned ! They get along very well and my big boy is a lot of help ! The little one adores his big brother !
But as everybody said the older one needs a lot of attention too sometimes even more then the toddler !
He is in a stage now that he thinks he know it all and likes to argue a lot I wander if this will pass ??? Sometimes he drives me insane ...
Hi All,
I too have 2 teenagers, both boys 15 and 13 and then I have my 5 Month Old. People ask if my 5 Month old was planned after a 13 year gap! And yes you do get sick of saying yes he was planned.
My older 2 were unimpressed at the thought of a baby but love him to bits now he is here.
Silvie I totally agree, my 13 year old needs more attention than the other 2 combined, and they do eventually improve!


I have two teenagers, dd17 (18 on saturday) and a 16yo ds, and I also have a 15
month old dd.

I am loving being a mother second time around. The older two thought I was joking when I told them I was pregnant, it took them a bit of getting used to, but now their baby sister is here they love her to bits.

I love how the kids are all at different stages, dd17 working full time, ds16 oh my god dont get me started! hahaha and my beautiful baby girl who is doing something different every day.

Some people have been a bit rude, asking if the last one was planned and looking shocked when I said yes (I was 1 week off 41 when I had her) but who cares? Its mine and my families life, not theirs.

I hear a lot about everyones babies (ahh derrr! Huggies website!) but I would love to hear about other mums teens as well.
I look forward to chatting with you all more.
