When you picture your future family, how many kids do you imagine? I picture 3 kids, at least 1 boy & 1 girl, and they grow up in much the same manner hubby & I did, wild & free playing in the woods, running barefoot, riding horses, playing with bugs & snakes, following Daddy around & learning from him, spending many hours through the week with all of their grandparents & aunts, & desperately needing a bath every single evening hahaha.

I love it!!

I would have to say that I imagine mine pretty close to yours...... I have always wanted 3 kids as well..... and for some reason I always picture myself with a house full of boys. And them all to be just like their father, very much into the outdoors, hunting & fishing.

But really, I am ok with whatever and however many kids we end up having. I think the beauty of it is that no matter what- it will be just perfect

I would love to have 2 kids. A boy and a girl. I would love for the boy to be a sport loving guy like my DH and for the girl to be a girly girl like me. Honestly, though, as time goes on, I'd be thrilled with even one baby, and I don't care anymore if it is a boy or a girl. I'm starting to get really stressed out and worried with how long TTC is taking.

It's gotten so hard to picture... I dunno. As hard as it's been TTC and to be unsuccessful for this long... I guess I'm picturing one little one, spoiled to heck, lol. With every single opportunity and advantage in life that I didn't have as a kid. If this eventually happens, that kid will want for nothing.
