    I have one already; with all the fun of a teenager, we have realized that we prefer puppies and will not be having any more.

    well, I want 3, but hubby only wants 2. We’ll see what happens lol He wanted two close together (like him and his sister. he thinks it’s perfect…) but I don’t want them close so I said I would compromise and have 2, but spread them out lol I was from a family with 4 kids and I think 4 is too many, but whenever there were 3 of us together it seemed just right (i.e. much less fighting lol). Who knows what will happen though!

    FI and I both come from families with 2 children… we’ve discussed having kids in the future, and we both agree that 2 is probably our max.

    ZERO!  I want to be a great aunt, spoil my sister’s kids then send them home, retire early, move to a foreign country and open a bar (well the last part is FIs dream).

    i want two, he wants three. i told him he’d have to do some fancy convincing to get me on board for a third. i come from a family of three kids and i sure don’t want to have to deal with a middle child.

    said the middle child. lol.

    I come from a family of 7 kids. I, however, hope for 2 🙂

    Although I love my career I have always known in the depths of my heart I am supposed to be a mom. I would love to have 5 kids but the FI wants 1 haha…. I’m hoping we can compromise on 3?!?! For now, our fur baby will have to suffice.

    I originally wanted two. But after losing my brother last year, I told my husband I want 3. It’s really hard being an only child now and I never had sisters growing up but we MUST have one of each 🙂

    I want 2, DH wants 3.  The only way I will consider having 3 kids is if we have 2 boys or 2 girls because I desperately want a girl and he wants a boy. Obviously it wont matter as long as they are healthy but I really really want a girl.  I have a feeling I will have 2 boys and try again and get another boy!!!

    I want three or four children, and he wants two or three.  I’m the youngest of three girls, and he has a younger brother.  I think I want to have more because my mum ran a home daycare and I was ALWAYS surrounded by children, plus as the youngest with a five year gap between me and my middle sister, I always longed for a playmate who was closer in age.  But we’ll see what happens when it happens!

    I want 3 or 4 but we’ll probably end up with 2. He’s pushing 40 and I’m not that far behind.
