I've got 3. #3 is awesome, I can't imagine not having him. So, how can I answer?

The "kid schedule" was orchestrated by my wife, ultra-planner. She wanted to space them 3 years apart, and she wanted 3 so that if one of them died it wouldn't leave the other as an only child. Morose perhaps, but someone has to Gantt chart my life.

That's a pretty ****ed up thought process.

What if two of them died?




And, congrats, TX?

I'll let her know you thought so. That's all you got?

Wow. Am I the first with the incredibly apt basketball comparison?

2 kids = man to man

3 kids = zone is all you can do..and you are hopelessly outnumbered.

Wouldn't give it up for the world.

Seems pretty rational to me. The only thing guaranteed in life is death.

Passedpawn, did she suffer the loss of a sibling at a young age or, have you two experienced having a child in ICU?

Three boys here: 3,5 and 7. No big deal going to three. Beer consumption seemed to go up proportionately though.

I've never heard someone say "I regret having another child."

but I've often heard people say "I wish we would've had another child."

The more the merrier. Plus, tax advantages are better with 3.

My wife is uber-rational. No, no immediate losses in either family. When I say she plans everything, I truly mean every hour of every day for the next year is planned. You'd have to see her calendars to truly appreciate it. She's a terrific mother and good wife. I've always been a sucker for smart women.
