We have 3 under 6 and always get the snide comments because we have "sooo many kids". I feel like we have a parade of kids LOL

Re: Just how "many" is many?

Maybe it depends where you live, but it seems like here 2 is normal, 3 is okay, but only if the first two were the same sex, and anything more is a HUGE family. We currently have 4, but one more on the way I already feel like a spectacle when I go out, but I love having a larger family!

Re: Just how "many" is many?

For the first time I had someone ask if our 3rd pregnancy (whicj turned out to be twins) was an accident. Um no. We wanted more than two...

Re: Just how "many" is many?

i dont feel like we have a large family in the sence that others do. i see us as border line large. to me large is 6+ & a maga family is in the 10+ digets. i do get stoped alot when im out w/ my family since we r lager then the norme here. if u have more the 2kids where i live ppl see u as crazy. when u get to the 4+ nubers they see u as insane. when u get to 6+ u need mental help since your trying to out do the duggers. i was asked that & i "only" have 5!

We have 5 so far, and while I don't consider that unusually large we are to the point where we get OMG looks when people ask us if they are all ours...

I have 4 and don't feel like it's a lot, but most people who know us or see us out seem to think otherwise. I want one more, but it will take a miracle for that to happen.

Re: Just how "many" is many?

I have 4 and preg. With #5 and I feel like a small family. I think I will still feel like a small family when we have #5. I think if (hubs is finished after this...he was finished after #4) we outgrew our minivan, I would feel like a bigger family (we have 5 back seats, and 2 front seats for hubs and I)...so I feel we are still smaller

Re: Just how "many" is many?

I also think my perception of what is "large" is based on my own desires to have more children.

Re: Just how "many" is many?

Well people make comments all the time and I have 3. I am pregnant with #4 and we have to get a bigger car. I think if you have to purchase a bigger car to fit everyone in the family in the car then you have a big family.

I also think it is differrent for everyone. I am done after this one is born and it will be alot for me bc I will have 4 5 and under. For someone else that may just be half a family.

I have five and I feel six is many. Lol! I don't know why. Possibly because I have friends that have six or more.
