How many 5yr olds talk about wanting kids?

Ok so ever since my 5yr old has become a big sister all she keeps talking about is becoming a mom! Not really a big deal, most little girls want to be mommy's and play with dolls. But this is were it gets different, She keeps saying she wants 10 kids!! she wants ten kids and a pink van! lol! It just worry's me. I don't want her thinking about wanting kids yet!!!!!! and 10??? and she talks about it a lot! I don't know, i was just wondering if this was a little different or what everyone thought? should I be worried?

  • i did that, my sisters did it as well. its just their way of thinking about the future and what they want. she is only 5 so i'm sure in a few years she'll say ok i want 9 kids then 8 and so forth. there may be a time when she says she wants none. my daughter is 3 1/2 my son is 10 days old and she keeps telling me she wants a baby in her belly and she wants a boo boo (i had a c-section so i have to tell her i have a boo boo when she wants me to pick her up) too that way she can be "just like mommy" so i think its normal

  • When I was little I said I wanted 100 kids, I didn't really know how many 100 kids actually is. lol I just wanted a big family.
    Now that I am grown I know I that I want five, not quite the hundred I was planning as a little girl, but definitely a big family.

  • I agree with the others. It's harmless. More than likely no different than a little kid saying they want to be a superhero or pop star when they grow up.

  • My niece is just like that. My SIL just had a baby and my niece walks around "nursing" her baby dolls. She doesnt want to bottle feed them anymore. When she grows up she wants to be a superstar and a mommy. They eventually grow out of it
