“I have four kids and love it”

Glamour (South Africa) - - Life -

Lynsey, 37, mother of four “Peo­ple as­sume that at least one of my chil­dren must have been an ac­ci­dent, no one can get their head around the fact that I planned all four. But I’ve wanted to be a mother for as long as I can re­mem­ber, and I work as a nanny – I just love be­ing around kids. I had two with my first hus­band, but we split up when our sec­ond child was 18 months old. I then met my sec­ond hus­band – who was des­per­ate to be a dad and bril­liant with my two – and we de­cided to have chil­dren to­gether. I run things like a mil­i­tary op­er­a­tion – you can’t wing it with four kids. We don’t have much spare cash or free time, but it was my choice to have four. When they’re older, things will be dif­fer­ent, but I to­tally ac­cept that my life at the mo­ment is all about them.”
