I have 7 in school this year. I forgot how much trouble the 2 and almost 4 yr old could get into without siblings around to keep an eye on them. I have to wait for the big kids to get home to get anything done.

On the upside, it is nice to not have kids fighting over the pc all day. L, almost 4, gets a turn everyday now. And if S (2) takes an afternoon nap, I can spend some time with L, helping her with games or making crafty stuff.

I am such in agreement with you! My oldest 5 are at school, and I'm home with my 3 y.o. and 16 month old. They can get in so much trouble when I simply go flip around laundry! I found the baby on the couch "drinking" my coffee...all over the couch, floor and inside the cushions. :( Sigh... well, at least now the floor around the couch is clean, my couch cushions sparkle and the baby is not hurt.

I sooooo hear you from our end of the Canada!

LOL! I have 7 in school this year too and I agree, the bigger ones always kept the smaller ones under more control. LOL

Of course, now I actually have 5 little ones home... so, 4 two year olds and 1 three year old can certainly make a HUGE mess. UGH!
