Do you think any of your kids will end up having a big family?


I am sure that my oldest and third won't (it's too soon for me to know with my younger 2) but I can totally see my second (she's 11) having 6 kids. She loves babies and already says she wants to have a bunch of kids.

Mine are still a little young to make that kind of assumption.

My oldest waivers between none and 3 (girls )
My ds1 (9) says he wants a lot of dc....we'll see. He is a very gentle, caring, loving soul.
Other 3 are too little, though ds3 LOVES to carry around "babies" (dolls).

I've told them that they are to do what makes them happy. Whether that be 0 dc or 20.
I also told them that between the 5 of them though I better get at LEAST 1 dgc.

I have no clue, my oldest will probably never have kids, because of his challenges, but I know that in his heart he would like to. My oldest girl has always said she doesn't want kids but I see some wavering as she get's older. My next oldest son will have kids, just not sure how many. The next oldest girl will be my best shot at having lot's of grandbabies. Of my 4 little ones Savannah will be a mom, how many who knows but she loves to mommy so I can not see her never having any.

I doubt it. Four is a big family here, and I'm hoping by the time all four kids become cardiac surgeons, they won't have time to have more than two kids. I'm okay with that

The 3 boys wives will need something to keep them busy though while they are on call.
