Expected family size? (this has been asked before, but is always fun to read)

How many children did you want when you were a child? How many do you have?

I wanted a small family- which is what I have.  My friend wanted 5 children, she has two.

I've always wanted three. Husband only wants two. #2 is coming next month (I hope, maybe not until May though), and husband keeps saying "So we're done now, right?"

I keep telling him, "We'll talk about it in a year." He won't get a vasectomy, at least not yet, so I've got a bit of time to convince him (or for him to convince me.)

Zero.
When I got married one or none.
I have 2 by choice. No accidents.

Growing up, I probably wanted 6-8, LOL. I think that had more to do with having so many names I liked and not being able to decide which one to use (btw, none of the names I picked out did I eventually use, LOL). As I got older (especially as babysitting really started to take it's mental toll) I wanted less. At the end, the most I wanted was 2 kids, but I am perfectly happy with having only one.
