My gallery post a few weeks ago explained why we call our youngest child Bonus Boy and outlined my unnecessary worries when I found out that I was pregnant with him.
When we told our older children that I was unexpectedly expecting, our eldest was unimpressed and a little unhappy. He thought it would change our family. He was right!
The friendship which has grown up between him and his youngest sibling is a wonderful thing. I would recommend that any family with teenagers and pre-teens should also contain a toddler/pre-schooler. It is very hard to stay in a teenage grump when a 4 year old wants to play!
