How many children do you have?

Sometimes people choose a larger number to children that they want to have until they have a child and realize how much work (positive and negative!) it is!

Did your number "change" once you had a child?

  • I changed my mind.  I had my 1st, a boy.  I was okay with only having one when I was pregnant.  But then I started seeing mothers with daughters.  I started wanting a daughter SO badly.  It became an obsession, lol.  Now I have one boy, another boy on the way and 2 girls, lol.  NOW, I know that I am truly done.

  • I have one right now. When I was younger, I always said I wanted 3. then I said one...then I'm back at 3. I'm also in the process of aquiring a step-daughter...but I love kids. Three would be the top for me, as long as they're a few years apart!

  • I always wanted 6. My husband wanted like 1 or 2. We agreed on 3 before we got married.
    We now have 5 and I had my tubes tied but I think we both kind of wanted another but all 5 of mine were c-sections.
