How many kids do you think you would like to have? Boys, girls? How far apart? I think I would girl, and maybe like 2-4 years apart.

I was born five years after my sister. There is a twelve year gap between my two sons and they are not as close as siblings with less of an age gap between them.

I want four children, two boys and two girls. I would probably have them two years a part or until the previous child is potty trained:), but it really doesn't matter if I get 4 boys or 4 girls or whatever order because I know I can't control if they come out a boy or a girl.

We do not have kids yet. I like to have kids. I think I prefer to have a boy as my first kid, but my wife wants a girl. Whoever comes first I don't mind. We are planning on having 2-3 kids- two boys, one girl or vice versa. As for the age gap, two years is enough because we are no longer in our 20's and for a woman to have a baby during the late 30's is more risky than in the earlier years. I think having kids is one of the greatest gifts God can give to us as humans. That's one the things I want to do with my life.

I wanted to have a girl then a two year gap and a boy. Two children I thought would be ideal. I felt that they would have company and be able to play together as they would be close in age. I always dreamed about having a daughter. I like to collect costume dolls from around the world and I wanted to have a girl that liked dolls. I imagined buying a dolls house for her. When I was a child I thought it would be lovely to have twin girls. Then I heard about how difficult the birth is for twins when I was a teenager. I had my first son when I was twenty two years old. I got divorced and didn't plan to have any more children. It was a surprise to begin another relationship and have my second son. He is now two years old and I am currently pregnant with my much wanted daughter. She is due to be born this week. I never planned the twelve year age gap and this time I have finally got the two year gap I hoped for.

I wanna have 2 to 3 kids - a boy and a girl. I want them to have at least 3 years apart so that I can watch over the first baby first and when time comes that he/she is ready for school,then me and my hubby can have another one.

I have always wanted one boy but when I met my partner I would like to have girl too as he adores to have a daughter maybe because he does not have a sister and he wants to take care of a baby girl. I have three sisters and one brother so I know both and I want to have one boy first and a girl after 2 years. I know though my boyfriend is wishing more as he has told me one day. He is so wonderful that having babies with him even more than two will be fabulous. We are a couple where we can tale care of four babies so we can afford to have more than two one day.

I have four, I would love to have two more but my body just did not seem to want to work for me, so I am happy with the four I have and maybe one day I can adopt the other two.

I think i would like two kids. Either a boy then a girl, or the other way round. Or if not that i think i would prefer 2 girls to 2 boys. I want at least one though. One of the reasons i think 2 is nice is so they have someone to play with. As for the age gap i think 2-4 years is good. So the older child is old enough to behave and look after their younger sibling
