One of my friends gets asked all the time when she is going to have another one, (she has a 5 year old boy) She doesn't want another child and constantly tells people that yet people still keep asking her over and over and tell her she will change her mind. Do you ever have this happen to you seems like it would be quite annoying.
I have the opposite problem, i want to have 4-5 and right nowi have two living children and people keep asking me if im done and seem shocked when we say we want two or three more.
I think people should have how ever many they want, they are the one responsible for taking care of them so if they can only handle one, fine. If they can handle and want 8 that's okay too.

When I was younger & had no children people would always ask me why or when I intend on having kids. That really pissed me off. When I was first married I didn't want kids right away. Then suddenly I was married 13 years & I was having a really hard time getting pregnant. So peoples comments made me cringe. I finally had my Son at 39 & everyone said "Oh your old to be having a child now"! WTF?? So then I got another very HAPPY Surprise at 44! I had a baby girl! Now people just smile & say nothing! LOL! So with the experience I have had, I really think people should MYOB & keep their questions & comments to themselves. So go for it girlfriend!! :)
