When you were young how many kids did you want?

As an adult did that change?

How many do you have now?

Are you expecting more or are you done?

  • To be honest, I didn't want any growing up. I was scared of babies, always afraid I would hurt them. Even on up in my teen years. I have three now, I am happy and done

  • LMAO, LMAO my Mom and I talked about this last night, seriously. I wanted a ton, at least 10. I now have 2 and want more but it's HARD because we aren't rich (I've been on disability since first born in 2004 and am legally blind so cannot drive) and the special things for them like dance class, swimming, etc are so time and $$$ draining, I am not sure future babeez would have the same quality upbringing. We'll have at LEAST 1 more, a home birth I hope.
