    Natasha and Harry Blythe, married 2027 (wow!) I am 28 and so is he. We married in the English countryside at his aunt's estate, and honeymooned in the Caribbean, then settle down to life in London.
    2028: Harry gets a fantastic new job at a law firm in Central London.

    2029: We start trying for a baby, and are blessed within a few months with a pregnancy. Then the shock came- triplets! Marina Clementine, Isadora Genevieve and Milun Alexander

    2030: If life with one-year-old triplets isn't enough, I decided to open a bookstore, 'read away'. It's been a passion of mine for many years, and I'm lucky to have three wonderful ladies Georgina, Polly and Lucille, who help run it with me.

    2031: Unfortunately, on the triplets' second birthday we found out that Harry's mother had been in a car crash and is in intensive care in New York. He makes the trip over the Atlantic that night, and rings the next day to inform me that he will have to be out there for several weeks. The cost of this and the hospital fees will cost all the bookshop is making. Although I love my mother-in-law, I still feel that the funding should also come from his high-paying job that he works so hard at. This all culminates in a fight, and I tell him that I just cannot cope with three two-year-olds on my own for weeks like this. His sister tells him she'll fly out so he can come home- he has a young family after all.

    2032: We start the year trying for a new baby, before deciding that risking multiples again is too much for us right now. We apply for adoption, and find out that there's a little girl in France waiting for us. Upon arriving, we realise there's been a mix-up with papers- there's twin girls! Of course we cannot choose one, and end up taking our lovely newborn girls home, Beatrice Ophelia and Clara Elizabeth.

    2033: With Mari, Isa and Milun turning four, and Bea and Clara turning one I have my hands full whilst Harry is at work. Next to the bookshop, Polly and I open up "Mimi Daycare' for little ones- I can really identify with working parents, and my timetable is flexible as I own the shop!

    2034: Life is beginning to settle down, but I ended up at the doctor's for repeating sickness. Well, quite a shock- a pregnancy was not expected! Florence Amelia was born happy and healthy a week late. Harry and I feel complete with our six wonderful children.

    2035: Georgina (from the bookshop)'s sister dies suddenly two weeks after giving birth. Georgie approaches us and asks us if we would consider raising her nephews. Expecting older children, we say of course. Children are wonderful. Again we're surprised with twins! This time boys. But we can't turn our backs on them. So they join our wonderful family- Benjamin Tobias and Barnaby Lucas. Our mainly-female household has two new males!

    2036: We move towards the outskirts of London now- it's too much to stay in the centre, and the children have fantastic school choices.

    2037: Harry's sister rings up to ask if she could possible stay for a while with us before she starts her new job. We welcome Jenny with open arms- and she proves to be a huge help! The trips love their Aunt Jen and Benji and Barney are entranced by her long blonde hair! Having Jenny living with us makes childcare much easier- she helps out with our lot, and at the daycare centre, giving Harry and I some much needed time alone every now and then.

    2038: All that alone time seemed to have results- I found myself pregnant again! Genevieve Rose - another beautiful daughter. We are besotted. We knew Genevieve was Isa's middle name, but loved it too much and had to use it again!

    2039: Jen rings us again in the spring, and we find out that her boyfriend has terminal cancer. Unfortunately, it's fast-acting and we lose a bright soul by November. Together, Harry and I set up a charity with lots of help from Jenny and his other sister Molly- Crazy Chris has a Wish. We aim to raise awareness of this horrific and rare cancer Chris had, and to find a treatment as soon as possible.

    2040: The charity is kicking off, and Jenny seems to have found peace with our brood, who she treasures everyday. Lucky for her, I became pregnant again- what a shock! We had a bouncing baby boy Harvey August.

    2041: With the triplets starting high school I begin to feel a loss. My first babies have begun to fly! Somehow, someway Harry and I decide to adopt. Before we know it, we're on our way to India to pick up our wonderful little twin girls (again!) Maya Harriet and Sophia Margaret- who somehow become Mattie (Maya/Hattie) and Maggie, quite the mouthful.

    2042: Now at the age of 43, Harry and I think that maybe we should calm down on the children front and enjoy the wonderful little ladies and men we have. Of course, that doesn't go to plan. We take in a six-year-old foster child- Alice Marie for a year, before she's adopted by Jenny and her new partner. Both Jenny and David had lost a partner to cancer, and we are so happy that they have found each other.

    2043: Unfortunately, Harry's mother falls ill in America again. She is given months to live, so we ship the whole family out there for a month in the summer so they can spend important time with their Nanna. Naturally this costs a lot, but we know that she loves getting to know them well, especially the little ones who she hasn't met- Maya, Maggie, Harvey and Genevieve.

    2044: As if that wasn't enough- Harry gets a year of work in Germany. I know I cannot have him go, so for a year we move over there. The older ones stay in England with Jen and David to continue their studies, but all of us staying without Harry would have been too much and our marriage would have struggled.

    2045: Being a lawyer for so many years has paid off- those long hours mean that Harry has been able to take early retirement and help us all out in the bookshop!

    2046: time at home with Harry- oh my goodness! I fell pregnant again very soon, and delivered a healthy but tiny baby boy 4 weeks early, who came home after two weeks. We love our new bundle Jasper Timothy.

    2047: Our eldest turn 18, and each gets a place in a university. Mari is at Cambridge doing natural sciences, Isa is at Exeter doing Economics and Milun is at Warwick doing medicine. We are a pair of very proud parents. Jen and David are blessed with a baby boy Oliver Michael David.

    2048: I confess to Harry- I would really really really love just one more baby. We love our children so much, and he agrees. We are blessed with multiples again- Adelaide Katherine and Elora Jane. We are complete with our wonderful wonderful children.

    1. 2014: (L.E. 7, 5) Just a year after getting married, we fell pregnant with twin girls. We were, of course, scared but so excited. In mid-Autumn we welcome Poppy Michele and Hazel Penelope.
    Poppy + Hazel:

    2. 2015: (L.E. 3, 3) After having the twins, we decided to move to Birmingham, England.
    Poppy + Hazel's Bedroom:
    Master Bedroom:

    3. 2016: (B. 5, 4) Although Poppy and Hazel were just two, we decided to try for another baby. We got twins again, but this wasn't surprising because they run in both Adam and my side of the family. Our little twins are Maeve Annabel and Hugo Benjamin.
    Maeve + Hugo:

    4. 2017: (L.E. 4, 5) My sister, Kate, got married in a beautiful ceremony on the beach back in San Francisco. We left the kids with Adam's best friend, Troy. I was the maid of honour and Adam was a groomsmen.
    Their wedding day:

    5. 2018: (L.E. 5, 7) We decided to adopt a dog and cat, after much begging from Poppy and Hazel. Our dog is called Archer and our cat is called Bree.

    6. 2019: (B. 1, 2) The twins were three and five when we decided to have another baby and ended up with just one, a baby boy. His name is Nathaniel Isaac, but we call him Nate.

    7. 2020: (L.E. 2, 5) I got a tattoo of a sailboat to remind me of growing up on the coast near the ocean. Poppy and Hazel were six, Maeve and Hugo were four and Nate was one.

    8. 2021: (L.E. 6, 3) Just as Maeve and Hugo started Kindergarten, Adam and I unexpectedly became pregnant with a baby boy. His name is Tobias Miles.

    9. 2022: (L.E. 2, 7) Adam's father died and left us quite a bit of money. Since his mother died years ago and Adam is the oldest son, Adam and I flew to Santa Barbara to sort out his affairs. We divided the money evenly between Adam and his sister Jade, and left the property to Adam's brother Markus. It's a beautiful cottage on the beach where we spent each summer. We used the 2.5 million dollars to purchase a bigger home in Birmingham and put aside some for the kids' education.
    Poppy + Hazel's Bedroom:
    Maeve + Hugo's Bedroom:
    Nate's Bedroom:
    Tobias' Bedroom:
    Master Bedroom:

    10. 2023: (L.E. 3, 4) We were interviewed by a magazine about having two sets of twins. It was a lot of fun and they did photo-shoots of all the kids.
    Poppy + Hazel:
    Maeve + Hugo:

    11. 2024: (B. 6, 5) We decided to adopt a baby girl. Although our family is enormous, there's nothing like having a baby around and the girls were begging for a little sister. Her name is Caroline Rose.

    12. 2025: (L.E. 2, 6) Adam's cousin, Jude and his wife Amber passed away in a car accident. Luckily, their three children were not in the car. Jude and Amber left their children, Camille Lily (12), Bridget Alice (10) and Shea Evangeline (6) to Adam and I.

    13. 2026: (L.E. 8, 2) With the recent additions to our family, Adam and I decided we should move into a bigger house. The kids were thrilled, of course.
    Poppy + Maeve's Room:
    Hazel + Camille's Room:
    Bridget, Caroline + Shea's Room:
    Nate, Hugo + Tobias' Room:
    Master Bedroom:

    14. 2027: (L.E. 4, 4) Adam's sister Jade and her husband Owen decided to move out to Birmingham to be closer to us. Their three kids, Wilson Henry (17), Gregory Owen (9) and Cameron Jade (5) and them move into a house a few blocks from us. Jade and I decide to open a daycare centre in town.

    15. 2028: (B. 1, 3) We weren't planning on adding to the family, but we ended up having a baby girl. Her name is Olive Katharine.

    16. 2029: (B. 1, 6) We decided to adopt a baby girl who was at the daycare for a few weeks before her mother put her up for adoption. Her name is Charlotte Elodie.

    17. 2030: (B. 3, 3) After the parents of two year old twins pass away in a boating accident, we decided to adopt their kids. Their names are Bennett Porter and Sadie Isabelle.

    18. 2031: (L.E. 6, 5) Jade's son, Wilson decided that it was time to marry his longtime girlfriend, Alexandra. The kids all play a part in their lovely outdoor wedding and it's absolutely wonderful.
    Wilson and Jade:

    19. 2032: (L.E. 8, 4) We took in Tobias' best friend whose mother was no longer available to care for him. He's eleven years old and his name is Milo Atticus.

    20. 2033: (L.E. 8, 3) After almost twenty years, we decided that it would be a good idea to go on a real vacation, just Adam and I. Poppy and Hazel come home from school for a few weeks to watch all the kids and Adam and I spent the time travelling around continental Europe.
