ha ha I am not the typical person. Having two was nice. Then having three was even better. Four is not too much because that would mean one child per each parents' hand. But anything over that...like maybe say...oh, seven, ha ha...that is a little bit much. But anything after four is, per my partner, what's one more? LOL So, I have seven. And even though it can be trying and overwhelming at times. The other times with all the laughing and games, sure if fun!!!

Two is a nice number, though I suppose it would depend on the individuals circumstances and what they have to offer ot children. I have three children who are now grown up. Taking into account the cost of education and school books, we decided that three was as much as we could afford to keep comfortably.
