    Darling Husband and I would like 4, but we will see how it all plays out ๐Ÿ™‚ We each come from families with 3 kids – He’s the middle child, and the oldest son. I’m the youngest, and the only girl.

    I’m 1 of 2, Darling Husband is also 1 of 2.

    We want 2 children.

    Darling Husband sometimes talks about 3 but I don’t know if i’m game on that. I like even numbers because when we were little going to amusement parks and whatnot,my mom would never ever get on any rides, so it was the 3 of us (Dad sister & I) and someone always had to sit by themselves or with a stranger. Anyway, I like even numbers ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think two is my ideal number.  That way they’ll always have a special close bond.  I have one sister and we have been best friends our entire lives – if we’d had another sibling in the mix it still would have been great but we probably wouldn’t be so close!

    My mom also has one sister and they are the same way my sister and I are – so it would be cute to carry on the family tradition of having two daughters ๐Ÿ™‚ My dad is one of 8 kids, 7 boys and 1 girl.  Now that’s a family tradition I’m not sure I’m up to undertaking!

    SO has one brother and one sister, and he says that they teased his sister something awful.  If I’m going to have more than two I hope to have even numbers of the two sexes so they can gang up on each other if they have to and nobody’s outnumbered ๐Ÿ˜›

    we are both 1 of 2, and I want 2 b/c I had an excellent relationship with my brohter, and he wants 1 b/c he has a terrible relationship with his sister. We’ve agreed to try for two, and just use better parenting sense than his parents did at times.

    I have 3 brothers, Fiance has 1.  At the moment, we’d like 3 kids, but we’ll have to see where the wind blows in a couple of years’ time ๐Ÿ™‚

    We don’t really have a “set” number. We’re between 3 or 4 kids. I’d prefer 4, but we’ve decided we’ll have to see. It will all depend on our finances as we have kids. Multiples run in our families too so who knows? We may end up with two sets of twins or something crazy.

    He grew up with 3 siblings and I only had 1. I knew I never thought that the two of us was enough so I’ve always wanted at least three kids. Fiance wouldn’t mind 4, but he’d be just as happy with the 3. My extended family is HUGE too (we’re talking 20 first cousins on one side) so I think that contributes to me wanting more kids.

    I”m one of four, and my husband has one brother. I want three kids, which he is ok with. I like the idea of having some extra siblings around, in case you don’t get along with one (like me and one sibling of mine, ha!)

    I’m an only child. Darling Husband is the oldest of 2 (his brother is a year younger than me).

    We want zero children.
