Is having 4 kids crazy?

I would like to have another baby. Why does everyone say I would be crazy if I have another? This is all unsolicited. They will say "Wow, you have 3 kids. I hope you aren't having anymore!" or other things along that line. This is strangers saying this. we can well afford more kids, and my kids are well behaved (usually). Why would I be crazy? I love kids.

  • Of course you wouldn't be crazy! I've currently got 6 kids that I gave birth to, 7&8 on the way, and i'm adopting my two nieces. In my view you wouldn't be crazy at all! Go ahead and do it honey! :) yay for lots of children.

  • You're not crazy! However in today's world I think more than 1-2 kids is considered strange, lol. I am the oldest of 6 kids, and hope to have 12 of my own, yes, I hear that I am crazy ALL of the time!

  • They are most likely envious...Why else would a perfect strange saying anything like that to you let alone a family member? You are living your life for you not for them, Period! It is your life and if you know you can handle having more then God Bless you is what I would say. Having a big family is beautiful IMO...

  • It's personal choice; to hell with what anyone thinks. You do what's best for you. I personally knew I only wanted two; I never understood the need for a large family but that's me. It's ultimately your decision so you decide what to do.

  • I have 4. After #2 it's a breeze. Cause that's the biggest change for a mom I think. But yea I am insane..LOL..But I love it. I would love to have another but my youngest is 3. And then when I think about starting all over and the diapers and baby stuff...Egh. I stay with my 4..

  • Well, I have 4 and it's not really any harder than having 3.

  • No you're not crazy. If you want more kids and can afford it and just be the parent you are already it's really no one else business.
