  • 4 because I have 4.

    I planned on having 2 but was blessed with four, and I love them all so 4 is perfect for me.

  • One, because that is all I could have. Almost lost her, so I cherish her.

  • sometimes i think i want 4 because i would like to try and have 2 boys and 2 girls, but i hate being pregnant and i dont want to deal with 4 pregnancies, and i also wouldnt have 4 unless i had enough money to give them all what they want and need.
    So i might have 2, hopefully one boy and one girl. i already have my son, but if i dont have my daughter next, i will keep trying until i get her. so im really not sure yet...

  • 2 or 3, depending on sex.

    We have one little girl and are pregnant again. If it's a boy, we'll stop at 2. If it's another girl, we'll probably have a third.

    I'll be thrilled either way.

  • If money was no factor...I would say as many as God would give me. I always wanted a big family and love being around kids.
    But, money is a factor. I'm pregnant with number 3 and thats enough for me!

  • I have 3 and it gets overwhelming. I think the perfect amount would be 2.

  • I have one and I want one more. DH is iffy on more children because of health care.... Well see how things go, one might just be enough

  • lol I've seen this questin before. In my eyes there is not perfect number for kids. How ever many you are blessed with is goood :)

  • We have 3. It's usually perfect. On nights like tonight where everyone has to be someplace, but not the same place, at the same time I think sticking with 1 would have been a good choice.
