  • My husband and I are both only children and we both chose to have a large family with children spaced very close together. We had 4 sons in 5 years and are both very happy for our choice. Our sons are very close.

  • Just that I knew I wanted more than 1! LOL. And, I ended up with 3, which I'm very happy with.

  • My DH is an only child, and he didn't really miss having siblings. We have just one now, which he is fine with.

  • I am an only child, my parents decided that they wanted me to have everything I would need so they didn't have anymore.
    And currently my son is an only child but I plan on having 1 more in the next 4 yrs hopefully!

  • So far no. I only have 1 and am not ready for more. I don't long for a big family, but I don't want him to grow up alone. Just not sure when I'll be ready for another one!

  • Yes it did. I KNEW I wanted at least two kids, so they'd always have someone to play with. I now have two kids and am done.

  • DH and I are perfectly happy with just one. With what the last year and a half has done to my nerves, Im pretty sure more than one anytime soon would put me over.
