Does this make me a bad neighbor?

We live in the country in the middle of nowhere. There are only 3 houses close enough together for us to be considered neighbors. A single dad with 2 boys lives on my left. His kids and my kids are the same age and they became instant best friends. The house on the right was for sale.

A family recently bought it and I got to meet them today. They have 5 kids. Ranging from 2 to 10. Is it horrible that I hope my kids and their kids don't become friends??

Why don't you want them to become friends?

It's too many kids. I have 2 and the single dad has 2, so that's 4 that are already going back and both all the time, having sleepovers. I couldn't imagine having more over here.

Yes it is horrible. I get the point about all the kids but a few here or there won't matter. Buy a tent and let the older ones sleep outside this summer

I'm not neighborly, so I wouldn't even know if they had kids in the first place or not. When I lived out in the country and we had one "neighbor", I had no idea how many people, genders, ages, nothing.

Well they're only kids once, so let them be friends and enjoy it! :)

lol no. i'm psyched that we don't speak to any of our neighbors. we don't need any more socializing in this family lol.. when we're home, it's nice to not have pop-in guests.
