POLL: How Many Kids Do You Want? How Far Apart?

How many kids do you want? We want two kids


How far apart? About two years apart. My brothers and I are 5 years apart and my DH and his brother are 8 years apart and it's sometimes hard to relate to your sibling through childhood when you have a large gap in age.

We want 2 or 3 kids and we'd like to have the first 2 3-4 years apart. We haven't really talked about the time between the 2nd and 3rd babies yet.

We must be crazy because we want 4, all close in age. Of course we will take what we are blessed with, but as far as wishlists go...we want 2 boys and 2 girls all close together.


We both come from 4 kid families. Actually, our families are pretty similar. Mine is:4 kids, ages 34, 33, 29, 24.


FI's family is 33, 32, 28, 21.

We know we for sure want 2, but I kind of like the idea of 3 so we'll see on that one lol.  We also would like them to be at least 2-3 years apart.  In my family there are 3 of us and we are all 3 years apart and it worked out really well growing up.

When the time comes, probably 2.


DH is an only child, I'm one of 3.  We have discussed the +/- of both and came to the conclusion that 2 would be perfect!  :)


I'd like them closer in age so that as adults they are close and as kids I'm not dealing with one working on cursive and the other breastfeeding, ugggh.

How many kids do you want?  we talk about 3 (Jason says 4 though) lol Its all about money though- Id get pregnant right now again if it wasn't for money. . .


How far apart?   Like I said, we were hoping soon- like this new year. but with all thats going on- we need to wait to be smart.

I want 4! My mom and aunt both have 4 kids and I'm hoping to carry on the tradition. I haven't decided how far apart I want them...there's 9 years between me &  my youngest brother (i'm the oldest) and it's not bad. I'd really like to have twins at some point!
