I have 2 and I am done. I don't have anything against big families, but I don't want one. I like it being just the 4 of us. It is small and intimate and I am able to give each of my children plenty of attention. Plus...if the house was ever on fire I could pick them both up and get the hell out. How am I gonna do that with 10 kids?!?!?
My husband and I view children as a blessing. I am from a small family, but he is from a large one. He has great memories of his childhood, and his family is close knit. ( but sometimes crazy, lol) i knew from a young age I wanted more than the average 2 kids. I'm expecting our 4th. I would love one or two more, but this will probably be it- mostly for health reasons. We afford our children by living debt free and being very frugal.
I have 4, but I only had three for 9 years, then my little bonus baby (as I like to call him) came along. Yes I can afford them and its easy to care for them seeing as the older 3 are now 17, 15 and 13..the baby is almost 4 and I have lots of helpers..lol
I've always wanted a big family....currently pregnant with #6....we are doing well all around, and I feel ever one of my babies is such a blessing and a huge accomplishment...I obviously was meant to be a mommy
