How many children?

How many children did you want to have before you started having kids? How many do you have and are you done or having more?

For me and my hubby he wanted 8 and I wanted 3. We settled on 5 but now we have 3 and we are very much done having kids!

  • lol I like your compromising skillz.

    It changed for me sometimes. I could envision myself in the future with 3 teens and I daydreamed days at the beach and amusment parks as a family.

  • Always knew that I wanted a large family. Never really had a "set" number, but I wanted a couple girls, and a couple boys. Things didn't "exactly" work out the way I wanted, but I am none the less very very blessed. I have 7 boys, and had my first girl last November :) but she will be the only girl, cuz we are all done. I am quite content with my 8 munchkins.

  • I want 4 (or as many as it takes to have a girl. lol) He wants to have as many as God will let us! Ha easy for him to say! I don't think I'd have more than 6. Now we have 2 and are gonna start trying for #3 next year.
