How many kids do you want?

My husband and I always wanted 2 children, preferably a boy and a girl. We had our daughter and decided that anymore would make us lose what little sanity we have left and hubby got snipped.
How many children do you have and how many did or do you want in comparison?

  • I had one from my first marriage. I had thought that he would be it for me, but I met a wonderful man who did not have any children. He said he would be happy with just my son, but we decided to try for one of our own. We are now blessed with two beautiful boys. 10 years apart. His family keeps asking us when we will be having another. The answer to that is "we're not"

  • I always wanted three boys. I ended up with two girls so far; I still want a little boy, at least one. So I hope to have at least one more baby, though it all depends on where I go in my future. If I meet a good man with a good job and I land a good job too then I suppose we could probably afford one or two more kids which would be nice too.

  • Three less than I have right now. OK just kidding.

  • Just the one I have right now. She has plenty of friends and she's not "spoiled", so being an only child shouldn't scar her for life or anything (I hope!)
