How many children do you have? Do you want more?

We have two beautiful children! Jalen, our son, just turned 5 and Jasmine, our daughter, is 2. We do not want any more children. I feel we were blessed to have a boy and a girl. Oddly enough, I've always wanted 4 children. I recently told my sister that since my daughter is growing up and getting more independent, I'm starting to have that yearning for another child. My sister is now pregnant with their third child, so I'll just pamper and hold and cuddle my niece/nephew to help me with my "feeling"!

I have 4 wonderful, but awnry boys! Jordan 16, Brandon 13, Tyler 2, & Dakota 9 mths. I would be so happy if I could have a little girl to spoil! For some reason my hubby only produces boys! :( 4 boys are a handful!! I am hoping sometime soon that he will change his mind and say lets go for another baby and hope for a girl, but I doubt he will. Of course though, it could happen as we are not doing anything to protect ourselves. I love babies and wish they would stay babies...They are the most precious things in this world!

Hello! I have a 4 yr old daughter right now and my husband and I are planning to have another baby boy maybe after 3 yrs maybe. It's hard for me to get pregnant becuase I'm a working mom. I was stressed all the time. I also have nephews and niece on my husband's side. I use to cuddle them too to help me in my longing to have a baby boy. :)

I have a two month old daughter right now. Ricky and I both want four kids. I keep kidding with him that we are going to have all girls and not a single boy. He said we'll keep trying until he gets his Ricky Jr :)

Before I had any children I wanted four, but things change when you actually experience being a parent. Having just one child is very hard for me. I do love being a parent and I do want more, I'm just afraid I won't be able to handle it! They always say "one more child, 10 times the work." That scares me! I do want both a boy and a girl though. We have a 10 month old boy right now. He's a handful but the greatest kid in the world! :)

We only have one child right now (today is his 6th birthday!), but we do hope to have at least one more in the next couple of years.

I have 2 kids. A 14 yr old boy and a 5 yr old girl. I am so glad to be done with diapers, potty training and up all nighters. I am happy with the two I have. No one could convince me to have more. The cost of raising kids has gone up, for me 2 is more than enough. especially on the days they are not getting along.

well we decided to have two kids as not to be outnumbered by kids... its funny this topic came up...we were at a camp with several families from our church this weekend and one of the couples just had a baby 3 weeks ago...and one of our friends commented that he figured all women after holding a new baby would want to have one lol... babies are nice, lots of work and they get attitude when they become teens! two is enough for me (mine are girls ages 10 & 14)

My Children, Mother and a Friend - This picture was taken back in March. My daughter is on the far left and my son on the far right. We were fellowshipping with some friend one day at the park.
Hello!I just wanted to share with you that I have been blessed with two children myself, my daughter Amanda is 20 and my son Stuart is 14. They are practically grown but they will always be my babies in my heart. No, we don't want anymore children. I love my two and I love to hold other people's babies but I honestly don't think with my health I could handle another one even if my husband and I wanted another one. I'm 46 years old and I have heard of ladies my age and older having babies, but it isn't for me. I have already had a hyterectomy and my husband has had surgery also, so it wouldn't be possbible now. But I'm so thankful to have my two and I'm so proud to be their mother. SheliaLee

We have five children and and they greatly vary in age , we have a 17 year old , 15 year old , 12 year old 3 year old and a 2 year old . I would love to have another one but am unable to because of medical problems . We were lucky to have the children we have as I miscarried four times and had difficulty with my pregnancies . I am getting to old to be having any more and realize I probably won't ever have another one but I would have liked to have maybe one more . I know it is going to be hard for me when my little one's start school because my older children will be moving out and my little one's will becoming independent and going to school and I am going to be lost with no little one's left and home and probably won't see anymore until one of my children has a grandchild for me some day .

I have three children, a girl and two boys. Ages are 9, almost 7 and almost 6. These are not my partners children however, though he treats them as his own and has done a wonderful job at helping to raise them. My partner and I want 2 children of our own and I know my kids would love a little brother to play with, or a little sister. The only problem is the fact that I had my tubes tied. After the Wedding, we're saving to have my tubal reversed, and if it can't be done, then we'll look into adopting.

We have a five year old and a set of 2 year old twins- all boys. It's enough to keep us busy all the time. Being outnumbered already, I am very very very sure that we are not having any more kids. (we were going to only have 2, hahahaha)
