Do you have any?

Do you prefer to be child-free?

Do you have too many?

Two. Boy of twelve and my little boo, who's a little over two.
I love the bones of my babies. My son is a good kid, very chilled and doing well at school, and Jasmine is the world's happiest child ever!!! That girl embraces life like a puppy.

My OH is often like a big kid especially when he's got the worlds worsetest cold EVER!

I've got two.

Daughter No. 1 is an honours graduate of Harvard University, and has her MBA and law degrees from Harvard. She lives in Boston and is a lawyer of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Daughter No. 2 is a physician and former Fulbright scholar, writing on medical ethics. She lives and teaches in Tucson.

Becky has two younger boys, still in school.

I've got three children. A boy and a boy and girl twins.

But I don't have any time on my hands because they've had children too and they seem to spend an awful lot of their time with us and an awful lot of our money Laughing
