    How many children do you have?

    I have 5.  My only daughter is my firstborn.  I am sure you can deduce the remaining four children are boys!  Do you have children?  If so, how many?

    Love my kids.  Have 4 at home, gave my oldest 2 up for adoption.  That means that I have had 6 thus far, and I am not sure that i have any plans to stop at this point.  At least not intentionally stop.  I still believe that if it happens that is fine, and if not that is fine too.  However, I do have to admit that now that my baby is 2 the thought of another has been passing through my thoughts from time to time.  (sometimes maybe even obsessively...lol)

    One in heaven from an ectopic pregnancy (gender unknown) and two grown daughters.  Two sons-in-law too that I love like sons.

    I have three.  The first child was an "easy kid" and tricked us into thinking all kids are like her.  My second daughter is a little princess and is prone to make big out of little.  My son is all boy and he's the most difficult to raise right now.  All are between the ages of 7 and 4.

      Three of my children fall into that category as well - 4,5,7.  I am amazed at how each personality is so different, each approach to a task, each disposition to life situations.  Even at these early ages!

    I have three stepdaughters, a stepson, a 6-year-old son, a 1-year-old daughter, and a son whose estimated due date is in three days. My younger son is the last of the bunch, my poor husband is 52 now and would like to be done changing diapers sometime before he dies wink.

      my mom had me, then 2 boys.  I was 13 1/2 when my older little brother was born, and I was pregnant with my second when my second brother was born 8 years after the first brother.  she spaced hers out quite a bit too.

      Smart, your beautiful daughter will have individualized attention and would not have to be involved in sibling drama that it is routine for children in multichild families. Only children have THE BEST of all worlds! God Bless.

    I have 3.  I gave birth to a girl and a boy. The other, a boy (I also consider as my child), is from a former marriage.

    I have five children.  Four girls and one boy who is the middle child.  Their ages range from 8-25.  They all have their own personalities.

    1.  Daughter number one is headstrong.
    2.  Daughter number two is independent.
    3.  Son number three is his own thinker.
    4.  Daughter number four is determined. 
    5.  Daughter number five is energetic and often     times in her own world.

    This makes for an interesting household during family functions.
