Over the weekend, the thought of raising children in this day and age crossed my mind.

One question I always ask myself is how many children I'd like to have once I get married.  All of my friends are married and have anywhere from one to five kids!  The friends who're juggling multiple children definitely have their hands full and we generally talk about crazy schedules.  I think you can relate!
