Did you always want a big family? If not, when did you change your mind?
I had our first child right out of high school and when the nurse asked us if we were planning on having anymore, I said, "no, she will be the only child!" Of course, I had a terrible birth experience with her so that was me talking through the pain and grumpiness of that first birth. After about the third child, I knew then, that I wanted a lot more children. After the sixth, we were both sure we wanted more!
