I don't want to have any. Children just aren't my thing.

You've got to be kidding? Months of the year? My sons January, September, October, November and December and his sisters February, March, April, May, June, July, August? I can see April, May and June as names, but November? Jeesh. That's almost as bad as a woman I met earlier....Name was Georgia Valdosta. The things parents do to their kids.

I want to have either 2 or 3 children only. Well, I want a small family so I can easily give their wants and needs. I hope my children would be good people in the future.

As of now I have two children and I want some more. My target is having a big family. Having a big family is a happy family for me.

Wow 12? That's insane! I don't want very many. No more than four, but I think four may even be pushing it. I'd be happy with two. But, you know, strange things happen, cant change what does happen.

I wouldn't mind at least three children. But I don't know how many children my partner wants though. It's always been my family has at least three children and I sort of want to go with that.

Your partner might be kidding but in India people used to have children ranging anywhere from 12 to 15 in number in olden days. They used to have joint family and just imagine the way the family used to be all living under a single roof! Ofcourse I think this they used to do for the basic occupation was agriculture and the main power required for accopmplish the jobs for this purpose was animal power together with man power. So more the number in the family the more working hands at disposal ! But with the changing times and awareness created by the Government of India people have started following Family palnning and now a days people are restricting the size of the family to one or two. This I am talking about the literate people ! But in villages in India still people are having children anywhere from 4 to 6 in numbrers! For us we are having one son and he is quite grown up and he would be getting his Engineering Degree next year! We deliberately palnned too have asingle child as we believe in quality upbringing and best p[ossible facilities we can provide for him! Though sometimes we feel that we could have another child as we feel very lonely as our son is staying away from us, in Hostel for his studies! Thanks a lot ! The topic was quite an interesting one and loved to participate in it!

haha... the idea of naming your children after the month is so cute! As For me, though I do love kids, but I can't image having so many children. Three kids is the maxium number I can bear. Two is great,one girl and one boy.

We currently have 2 and would like more. I'm not set on a certain number. 5 is probably too many for us. I would like 3 or 4. My husband told me before we married that he wanted alot of kids which probably meant no more than 5, but now he sees how much it takes emotionally, financially, etc. to take care of your own. I'm happy for you that you found such a wonderful woman. I'm sure she is a very loving person. How could she not be since she wants 12 kids. :) She will change her mind after the 1st or 2nd one. It's hard work getting them into this world and caring for them. Good luck future daddy!
