More children?

Im 20 years old, 21 in november. Married with 2 beautiful boys. Financially stable, and in college. Me and my husband would like to keep our kids close in age, we want to try for one last child and be done.

My question is, how would you view this? A 21/22 year old with 3 children? Honestly?

  • I know it doesnt matter. But our first was an "oops", and then we had the second one becasue we wanted them close in age. 3 years apart. Now id LOVE to try for the last one when tyler is 2. But i already get looks, maybe im paranoid.

  • well if youre finacially stable and have the time and ability to provide your kids with what they deserve, ie medical insurance, clothes, food, etc etc then it doesn't matter what other people thing, theyre just assuming things.

  • Yes we have great insurance, financially stable. They have everything they need and more. Im just paranoid about what others think. I gotta stop that :(

  • Don't let others bother you. I didn't have my first until I was 25, but I have such a baby face, I still got all sorts of "is that a teen pregnancy" looks.

    ...just laugh it off.

  • As long as you are taking care of your kids, age doesn't matter.

  • As long as you take care of them who should care? Don't let other people keep you from having another child if that's what you want.
