I know some people who would never have more than one or two kids no matter what their financial status is and then there's families I know with lots of babies and love being a big family then there's people like my ex who keeps having kids without being able to support any of them.
My husband is one of 8 children; his family has the means to provide for a family of that size and his mother is like super woman and raised them all without the help of nannies, cooks, or maids. She did it with just her, her husband, and the support of family. I'm one of 8 children; my parents could afford to have all of us financially but my dad was in and out of jail for most of my young childhood and my mother was a wreck most of the time.
I love being in a big family, my husband loves being in a big family - we already have 5 children and I am handling that quite well emotionally and financially but I sometimes worry how many children can I handle? Sometimes I feel like I could easily handle a dozen kids especially when my first 3 love helping out around the house and with their younger siblings but there are those rare days when all of my kids are just in a mood and I feel like I never want to have another baby again. The good days far outweigh the bad so I know I'll have at least one more kid within the next couple of years.
So basically I am curious to see how many other women want big families and all that comes with it and how many women prefer to have only a few kids...
