    @kris325:  Two kids and two dogs. It’s manageable and fun that way for us.

    No kids, lots of animals! I want goats again! I’m thinking 3 dogs, a feral cat colony (a small one only! And I mean one of the speauter and release colonies that would be euthanized if they had to be adopted) indoor cats, and a few goats. 


    Of course I will still have my turtle too because they live for like 40 years whaaaaaaat.

    @kris325:  I always thought I wanted at least 4 kids. I grew up as 1 of 4 siblings and I loved it that way. I go back and forth now though after realizing how much work it is and how expensive it is. In an ideal world, I’d say 4 but reality would probably be 2 or 3. I’d also like a dog regardless of how many kids we end up having.

    @kris325:  I grew up as a 1 of 3 children and 3 dogs. It was fun in some ways, but the energy and money required for raising that many children/pets is more than I desire 🙂

    Congrats if you find out you are expecting!

    Possibly just one kid, if any. No pets for now..maybe later on (a couple of decades from now) we’ll get an indoor cat.

    @kris325:  I had them as a child!

    Yaodi was supposed to be a meat goat. He was entirely too sweet so they rehomed him to my mom. He was her baby. He’d wait at the fence and run circles and follow her when she came to see him. He’d cuddle too. When I was born he get jealous of me and he’d try to headbutt me all the time. 

    Kula was a sweet and gentle lady and you could easily scratch her or love on her, even when I was a little thing. Very laid back.


    Willy was my goat specifically. His brother had died and they wanted him to not be lonely, so he went to me! He would follow me around all day. He was a lot like a dog. He’d trot into the garden and I’d be all “Willy, no! That’s not for you! Come eat some apples instead.” and he would prance back to me and eat fallen apples. He was awesome!


    My step sisters decided they needed goats because I had them, and nobody ever socialized them. They only liked each other and would run away from you. 


    I adored my goats though!

    One or two kids (depending on the day) and our dogs.  I think we’ll be set!
