    2 and I'd prefer them to be biological but would not be against adopting one of them. IDGAF what genders they are, they could be coconuts for all I care(being my kids they probably would be) as long as they come potty trained and somehow birth themselves.

    Not anytime soon though; God no, I'd rather talk/sound like the Count from Sesame St. for all eternity ( I already kind of do anyway).

    Sounds about right.

    I wanted 4-6. They are a lot of work, so I went with 4 (2 of each). I want to keep all the ones I have. It was rough when they were young but now I joke about having made friends -- literally.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    I used to feel that three was the optimum number. As time goes on my desire to have kids lessens.

    We have 4 total. 3 boys and 1 girl. I don't call them stepkids or anything like that, just our kids.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I haven't decided whether I want children or not.

    Earth is severely overpopulated, only selfish people would give birth to more kids. It's like pet breeding. If you want kids - adopt those in need, don't create new ones. Your genes and offspring is nothing at all special. My sister said I was acting bitter when I told her this, yet I think I was acting accordingly in order to preserve our lovely planet.

    Would love four bio children. I have two daughters. Don't care if I have more daughters or sons, either would be wonderful. Would like to foster or adopt when I'm a bit older, (but most likely foster because I believe less people do and there are kids who are really in need). I would love to care for and give hope and love to children who don't have a lot of either. :-( That would be a dream life to me.
