my husband and i have three children, 6, 2 and 4 months. we are finished, and very happy with the three that we have. i have just been in shock for the last year or so, that for so many people, 3 kids is an unheard of number! i get looks and stares when i take all of the kids with me to the mall or grocery store. when did three kids become a large family? in a perfect world, i would actually like to have 5, and even that does not seem like so many. unfortunately i have fibromyalgia, and it makes pregnancy so hard on me, that i have had to re-evaluate my family. i am an only child, so i can understand why my parents think that three is a lot, but i just dont see it as a large family until you pass the 5 kid mark. am i alone? do the rest of you see three as being a "large" family? wow, that was very non-linear, i must be sleepy!
