A survey of more than 7,000 U.S. mothers found that mothers of three children stress more than moms of one or two. We have no idea what the stress levels are like at the Rodriguez home in Suffield, Conn., but love this shot of their three kids, twins Elise and Nora with an older sister who is not named.

The study also reported that mothers of four or more children have lower stress levels. Once again, we can't speak for their stress level, but we love this shot of the Tate family, which has two sets of twins that are 17 months apart -- Emma, Robin, Morgan, and Ryan.
