At this time I have three and a half years old daughter and two years old son. I still one to have another one, but I don't think it will be soon. I want the other two grow up a little bit, so I will not be too busy with children in one time. Maybe few more years I will think about it again :)

I have 3 beautiful girls age ranging from oldest(5)middle(2) and my baby girl 7 month old. Yes they are a handful,but yet they do keep me living my life to the fullest! No, my husband and I are happy with our girls. We are now getting prepared for the teenage years and the after affects of them leaving for college and then marriage and so on. Yeah it's to early to think about that, but we are getting ready fininacialy!LOL

One of each would be great. I think it depends on how we do with 2 if we want to continue.

I always wanted 6 kids when I was growing up. I don't know why. I was the oldest of 2. The only people I knew with big families was my one aunt who had 6 kids. My husband and I agreed on 3. he was the youngest of 3 and it seemed like a reasonable number. We just never expected to have 3 children in the first 3 years of our marriage. I was 26 with 3 kids and the thought of never having another one was too depressing to imagine. So here we are with 4 kids and still considering having 1 more. Some days we both want another, some days neither of us do and other days we are split. Our kids are 7 (girl), 6 (boy), 5 (girl) and 19 months (girl).

Well, sometimes it's not really our decision how many kids we have. I think as long as you can 'handle' and take care of the children, then maybe 1 more is not such bad idea.

I have two girls ages one and two. They will be two and three next week and now I have a boy on the way. An as far as having more that is totally out of the question.

I have two girls. For us, that is the perfect number. One for each hand when I am out alone with them, or one for each parent when we are out together. It works great!

I see that 2 is a prominent number for kids. Thanks for sharing.

I don't want any. I like kids, but as long as they aren't mine. I'm too selfish to make sacrifices and give things up like parents have to do for their kids. I do have rental children, my nieces and nephews, that do just fine when I need to borrow a baby for a little bit to remind me why I don't want kids.
