Have any of your kids expressed a desire to follow in your footsteps and have a large family?

I can picture my #2 with a bunch, and probably #4, but no way my oldest wants a crew and I don't think it's for #3. I don't know about my youngest.

Jayde is the only one who has mentioned anything about kids, and she said she only wants 1. That's fine with me, but it kinda hurts my feelings in a way too because it makes me feel like she doesn't like our family and she's only 9!

#1 doesn't want any! Neither did I! The rest I could see having some or a bunch. #6 always gathers up arm loads of stuffed animals and says they are his kids.

#1 has gone back and forth from only adopting a girl to having 3 girls to "Who says I'm having any kids"
#2 has always said he "Wants to be a dad"
The rest are still too little, but I think my #5 may follow in Mommies footsteps.....maybe #6 too, but she's still really little. They are both very caring, nurturing, loving, helpful little girls. So are the rest (girls, boys), but you know what I mean.

#1 probably won't have kids.

#2 has always said, since she was 2, that she did not want to have kids. Once when she was 3 she asked me how she could get married, I told her and she was like "no, I can't cause I don't want kids". I told her when she was older she could take a pill that would stop her from getting pregnant...no way was I explaining condoms. She still says that, but she is so good with kids.

#3 will give me grandbabies, how many I guess will be up to his wife.

#4 would be the one most likely to have a bunch.

#5 he wants triplets so I guess anything is possible.

#6 I don't know, she'll be a mom though.

The next two are kinda you...

I expect all my children will have kids, how many is up to them and their spouse, no one has necessarily expressed a desire to have a large family.

I imagine that all my kids will want children. #1 says that she doesn't want more than 1. I tell her all the time that I don't think that's fair to the child. She used to say she wanted 4 or 5, but we shall see. I think she may change her tune once she gets older. #2 is the one I could see with the most kids. #3 would probably have kids, but I could see it being utter chaos so I wouldn't imagine more than 1-2. #4 is too young to determine. And #5 is still in utero so I can't say.

My oldest is a boy but he says he wants quite a few

My second is a girl and she wants a bunch. She even has names picked out.

They both want to adopt as well.

My third is only 3 and youngest is 11 months so not sure with them

My oldest has said she wants to "grow up and be a mommy just like me" but none of the kids have expressed anything in regards to how many kids.

I could see kid #3 being a dad. He's always playing house and he's good with his little sister.

I think my oldest will have kids, but probably only a couple. I suspect she will follow in my SAHM footsteps though, she told me the other day, "I want to be a scientist and a doctor, but I can't because then I wouldn't have enough time for my kids" , but who knows, she's only five! lol.

I think my son (next oldest) will have a larger family though. Any time I ask him what he wants to be when he grows up, he says, "A daddy like my daddy" (he's 3.5)
