    Default Kids?

    How many kids do you want? I often think about this. It's weird because just a few years ago I didn't want any. Now that I'm older I would like some. I want three. Two boys and a girl.

    Of course not until I'm married obviously.

    I'm not sure how many I wanted when I was just starting out but ended up only have my daughter. She is 37 years old with 5 kids. She has 3 girls and the twins were born on Feb 1.

    I want the same amount now that I have always wanted. Zero.

    I am not the right kind of guy to be a father. I probably should have been handled like a bull calf and "taken care of" when I was about 12 years old.

    Teaching kids in Children's Church is okay. When I come up with the perfect object lesson to grab their attention, when they actually listen to the lesson...

    Kids of my own is not okay. They would not be okay and I would not be okay. I don't have anywhere near the patience necessary to raise kids.

    Now if I met a lady and we wound up getting married, that's a different story. But I'm not going to spend a lot of mental energy thinking about that until/unless I happen to fall into that particular situation.

    No. I suppose I could change my mind later, but for now I don't want kids.

    When I was younger I wanted like 12 and the thought of not having them was horrifying... now I'm older...I'm OK with the possibility of not having any, or having a few.
    If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

    Twelve?! Were you looking to start your own nation of people like Jacob did?

    I dont really like kids.. I'm OK with them but its kinda awkward for me to get near kids..
    kids always trying to get your attention, and if you ignore it they will more and more nosy.. while on my side? i have no ideas what to do..awkward..

    but, i definitely want kids on my own..
    maybe 2 (so they have sibling and not alone).. but then, what if i cant raise them well?? but i want them someday.. but, thinking about the pain bearing and giving birth scared me as well

    The same amount I always want.



    Unless, it's twins. I would like twins. Twins would be cool.

    I come from a family of ten kids. I loved growing up that way and always wanted to top it. No more than 16, though . Only mildly serious about 16...but I downright love kids. I'd love a big family. My definition of big is six or more.

    I'm the opposite.
    The "twin gene" skips a generation in my family and it would be my turn to have twins. So I'm adopting

    If I could have planned my family, I would have liked at least four children, seven at the most. I picture me and my husband being really old, at Christmas, with much family around, as we sit by the fireplace. Our children have children, and some of them have children. I rest in my heart knowing that my children can share the physical and financial burden of taking care of their parents in their old age, so that it's not hard on one.

    And they also have children who will not be over burdened taking care of them when they get old. With many siblings, they have someone who will always be there for them. This world is tough enough- emotionally, financially, physically- and by giving them more siblings to help in times of need, they'll have an easier life, filled with more love.

    I've given birthday parties for my child, and only the two of us were there. My kids are 12 years apart, so it's like each one was an only child. And both of them shead tears about it. They both asked me why I can't just meet a guy so they can have a dad and siblings. My son was seven, on a park swing when we talked, and I said "You know, even if I was pregnant right now, the child wouldn't be your age." Silent tears rolled down his little face and broke my heart.

    In third grade my daughter won an award, not from the school, but from the state of Michigan. I was the only family at her award ceremony. A few from Church came, and that helped. But in my experience, there has always been sadness in my family's low number count.

    You shouldn't have kids if you can't take care of them! But if the only consideration is how many, my advice to you is not to have an only child, give them some sibling(s), and put some more good, loving, chilristian people in this world.
