What's your perfect number...

of children.

We have two and used to think we wanted 4. Now, we think we may stop at 3, mostly due to finances. What is your perfect number of children and why?

  • I would love to have 4 kids, but due to finances as well we will probably stop at 3.

  • As many as we can have:) We have three now and in 2 years we will try for another.

  • 2 kids, and that's what we have. It's perfect. I hated being pregnant, couldnt' imagine putting my body though that a 3rd time :)

  • the 2 I have is perfect for our family, I couldn't afford anymore and I have my hands full as it is.

  • Well, we have 4, and DH is done. I'm not so sure, but he is adamant about it. So, I guess it's 4 for us!

  • 2 for me - always wanted an even number

  • 1.
    I never wanted more than one child. And now that I'm getting close to the end of my "breeder" years (lol! I'm 36), I still only want one child.

  • Two is perfect for us. They each get plenty of one on one attention, they're easy to take out in public, either by myself or with my husband. We can stay in one hotel room when we vacation, etc.

  • Eight. I have 5 and won't be having more (age, health and energy level). But 8 would be my ideal personally. Another girl, followed by twin sons please :0>

  • Well it use to be 2. Then we got pregnant with number 3 and we thought maybe 4. Hubby still thinks for but Friday is his 1st birthday and I am thinking 5 isnt that bad. lol
