Lately I have been having an inner debate with myself. I have always wanted 4 kids and because of my age and how hard pregnancy has been on my body, decided that 3 would suffice. I have one of each gender and want a third. But these two get along so well together and we feel like we've hit the jackpot with them and that having one more would change the dynamics of their relationship. There might always be an odd man out (2 boys and 1 girl or 2 girls and 1 boy).
For those of you who have 3 kids, how does it work in your family?
I only have 2 right now but plan to have at least 1 more, although I would like to have 4 too! I grew up with an odd number of kids, 5, and was closest to my 2 younger siblings. My younger brother and I are still extremely close, my older siblings are a lot older so we didnt have the same relationship. I would still be very close to my little sister but she passed away almost 12 year ago now. Anyhow...I think the relationship dynamics could change for my girls when we have a third but not in a bad way. Also, not that this is something any parent wants to think about, but I am glad I still have my little brother since I lost my sister. It would be a lot harder to have been left without a sibling. Good luck with you decision. Its definitely a tough one! Pray about it if thats something you are comfortable doing. I am sure you will end up making the best decision for you family!
Works great in my family for my older 2 one boy who is 10 and one girl who is 11, my youngest is my 11 month old and he is really dependent on me and his dad for playtime etc. There is a large age gap between the older children and him so I am thinking I as well need a 4th child to balance them out so he will have a playmate.
I have four kids....three was good but four is even better! Good Luck!
I only have one right now, but I'd love to have another. Two is enough for me.
I don't have any children yet, but would like one if I'm able to.
This is exactly on our mind right now. We were pregnant with our third but lost our baby to a miscarriage and now I feel uncertain about doing it again. We're kind of back in the thinking stage again.
I would have LOVED to have 4 children :) I love even numbers too!
Keep it nice and family-friendly please!
