How many children do you want? Do you want them close or spaced?




Ideally, I would like 4-5 children. Financially, this may be our last. It's going to be tight even just with this baby, although I am in the process of getting licensed for in-home children which will help tremendously. The only thing about that, though, is any child I have that is under 10 counts as a childcare child, and I can only have up to 6 kids so if we have 4 kids of our own, I could only watch 2 additional children.

I would like at least 3. Maybe more. #1 and #2 will be 4 1/2 years apart, but I hope #3 comes along sooner than that.

I want 2, no more than I have hands and as much as I would love for them to only be a year or 2 a part I think we are gonna shoot for 4-5 years apart so that I can get into my career before having a second, that and to avoid 2 college tuition at one time...

This one will be our second and last. We just can't imagine affording more than that.

Two, and I would like them to be 4 years apart, but I don't think we'll be able to since it took a while to conceive this one.

We would like 4 or so, maybe more. This baby was a surprise. My first two are 14 months apart. I like them close together.

We also want 4 or so. My first two are 19 months apart, and the next two (my youngest and this new baby) will be 2 years and 7 months apart.

I want 2, maybe 3. I always thought I would have my kids about 4 years apart (that's how far apart my brother and I are) but since I'll be almost 30 when we have this one, I may not wait that long.

I always said 3-4 and this will be my # 3. SO wanted 1-2 and this will be his first biological child but he's "acquired" my 2. This one could very possibly be our last.
