    Default How many kids do you have? (single parents)

    I have 2 kids. It seems like an ideal number. One boy, One girl. Pigeon pair I am always told.
    I am now (not so sure yet) thinking about somewhere down the line having another one... So that'd make 3 kids to care for.
    How many do you have and do you think thats enough? How do you handle more than 1?? Or more than 2???
    I seem to find 2 very exhausting!!!

    I have one, and would like to have one more. But I want n. More than a six year age gap so it's unlikely Jake will have a sibling.

    At this stage in my life I think 2 is enough for me to handle. However, I'm still (relatively) young, so if I meet the right someone that may change in the future.

    One so far. I would love to give DS a sibling, if the right man comes along in time.

    i have one i would love another at the moment but that just isn't going to happen. i have a plan that if i am still single in 5ish years, i'll do it alone and have another when DS is about 8 - 10. It's a big age gap but i'll still only be in my late 20s and I couldn't imagine not having another bubba.

    One. That's enough. If I meet someone with kids that's fine, but I won't be having any more. No way. Pregnancy sucked and I think I got lucky with the birth and DD's babyhood, wouldn't wanna jinx it!
