    People never believe you'd have five kids with the same spouse!  It's always the next question when you say you have five!

    Hi, i don't think the challenges are unique really. Everything is merely multiplied by 5. The same problems a parent of 2 would face really.
    The children range in ages, 19,18,17,11 and 7, so it does seem as if we have two sets. 5 times more washing, cokking, cleaning etc, but they are all so individual in their preferences, that each one has their own needs and wants.

    My secret lies fully with my wife.

    She is amazing, truly.

    I could not cope with our lives on our own. She has pushed and pulled us through good and bad times, and is always there with a smile.

    The woman is awesome lolol

    Cheers for the question.

    none that a father of 1 or 10 doesn't have. i have 5 kids and 1 on the way . the only real challenge i guess is trying to make sure you do things that relate to each kids age without making the others feel like they are getting less.
