    I think I’d like to have two kids. I never wanted a sibling when I was a kid, but now that I’m grown up, I envy people with siblings. I don’t have a lot of female friends so I sometimes really wish I had a sister.

    I voted “other” because I loved being an only child but ended up having 2 kids myself.  Not because being an only was a bad experience, but thats just how life has turned out.  I definately feel that being an only child has affected how I parent though.  I have a hard time understanding sibling relationships because I never had one myself!

    When I was younger, I was so jealous of my friends who had siblings! I still sometimes wish I knew what it would be like to have a sibling, especially when I see the close relationship Darling Husband has with his brother.

    Having said that, I definitely want more than one! We’re thinking 2-3. (I used to want 4, but I saw a couple with 4 kids under 7 years of age in tow and I realized that 4 might be too many for me!)

    I didnt vote since I’m not an only, but I grew up in a family of 4 children and would love a big family like that.  However, I think I’m more selffish than my parents and really dont want to imagine the cost of raising 4 children and putting them through college.  (My parents paid for mine complete and I would really love to be able to do the same for mine).  I think 2 would be good for me, maaaybe 3.

    More than one. I hated being an only child and wouldn’t want to do that to my own child.
