Ive always wanted a big family and so has my husband, but because i have to have c sections it looks like baby number 3 will be our last one :(

I love my children more then anything in the world and i really wanted to share my love with at least 5 children. But i'll be happy with what ive got, im very gratful for what i have :)

Quoting Traci:

I want a big family...we've got three so far and I'm trying to talk my hubby into a fourth...

I think its hard for people to have such big families nowadays because everybody has such high expectations. My in laws each came from families with 7 siblings. The houses they grew up in were no bigger than 1100 square feet. People now feel cramped unless each child can have its own bedroom, you know? And with car seats its darn near impossible to have a large family. We've got an SUV and I can barely fit my three in there with their carseats. Its ridiculous! People also are so materialistic which is another reason they don't have so many kids. Heaven forbid they can't live in a McMansion, go to the carribean every year, go to the salon weekly....

I'd rather live modestly for now and have a big family to spend my life here on Earth with. All that other stuff is nice, but its not everything! ;)



I completely agree with you Traci!  I'm only on my first right now, but I really want 4 kids by the time we're done.  I know that may change after the 2nd one comes around, but I'm set on more than 2 for sure.  I can't believe how much love & fun my little boy is (7 months now)!  Materialistic things are nice to have, yeah, but they don't last & family will always be there for & with you.  I feel a great sense of purpose, love & accomplishment by being a Mommy and that is the best feeling in the world!!!

I'm not sure I understand... do you mean doing it (having kids) for the right reasons? What are the right reasons in your mind if that is what you mean. =) I have 4 babies. Our oldest is going to be 9 in 3 weeks, our 2nd is 4 1/2 yrs, our 3rd is 2 yrs, and our youngest is 10 weeks.
