    Is “I have no idea” a valid answer? lol. We are both the yongest of two. We’re not entirely sure we want to have any but we say we might start with 1 and see where it leads. Darling Husband says 2 is his max. 

    I honestly don’t know. sometimes I can’t picture myself with kids at all. Sometimes I can totally see having an only child. Sometimes 2 seems just right. Sometimes I can kinda see myself with a whole mess of them (but I seriously doubt that would happen due to 1) my being too practical to have a bunch of kids when we cant really afford it 2) my dh prob not being on board and 3) the fact we prob wont start having kids until my early 30s)

    Dear Fiance says he wants 5.. he’s nuts hahaha and I say 3.. we both have 2 siblings.. I’m normally really weird about numbers being even, but since I’m the middle child, I want a middle child, so have to have an uneven number lol

    We think 4 is a perfect number. We already have 3 boys. Waiting on number 4 for a few years. My kids are all only a year and a half apart. We are both 1 of 4. 🙂

    I would love to have four, but hubby only wants two. He says if we hit the jackpot, maybe we can have 4 🙂 I’m an only child, so I’ve always loved the idea of a big family. He is the oldest of two.

    I have a younger sister and SO is the middle between an older sister and younger brother.

    We both agree that two would work for us but we are still at least a year off from ttc. It’s funny because we have always agreed on two and never sway- be it girls, boys or a mix. I really can’t imagine any other number!

    Actually, come to think of it.. If we were to have twins first (I was a twin but sadly mum lost it) I’m not sure if I would try for another. I guess we’d just have to decide if it happened.

    We actually talk more about having kids than we do about getting married. I am an only child, SO has 3 brothers & a sister, we would love to have 2 kids.

    I am 1 of 4 and Fi is  1 of 2. 

    I would love to have a big family (ie 5) but I don’t see that happening. I would be happy with 3. Fiance wants 2 – a boy and girl (like him and his sister)

    I am #3 of 3.  My sisters each have 3.

    Fiance is #3 of 3.  His brothers have no kids.

    We want 2-4 children, but per our vows, will accept what the Lord blesses us with.

    I don’t have any siblings. Darling Husband has two. I only want one child, I want to be able to devote my time and finances to the one child. It just works for us.
