Why would you want so many kids?!
March 28, 2013 at 10:57 PM
Hey moms,

It seems that big families are on the rise again or the new family trend these days.

I'm just wondering why so many of you are choosing to have big familes? (More than 3 kids)

How many kids do you have now and are you planning on having more?

How do you afford it and how are you able to care for so many kids?

    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.

    More than 1 is a big family in my opinion. Too many kids.

    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

    Quoting skittlefart:

    That seems reasonable. ;)

    family is more important expensive gadgets and expensive lessons, we have them do sports and friends and family pass down knowledge like horseback riding and such
