How Many Kids Should You Have?

Sometimes I read a blog post by someone else that is so well written I want everyone I know to read it. So I do the next best thing and post a link to it on my blog.

When people say to me, “Don’t you have enough kids already?” the assumption is that I am somehow unfulfilled by the number of children in my home now. I need more children in order to be happy, and isn’t that selfish and irresponsible of me?

Why on earth would I want more?

The simple answer is, I don’t want more kids.
