Last night Da Wife and I went to meet a new addition to da world and as we were talking story, I looked around and there were three married couples with one keiki each. One just born, one three months and ours which is 21 months old today.
Then they all looked at both Da Wife and I then asked, "when's the next one?"
Wassup Wit Dat!
Well, I guess that's the fact of life right? Have one, get anoddah. For Da Wife and I, we do want anoddah but it's tough with just one right now. One couple in da room is split wea one wants but da oddah doesn' and da one who just gave birth doesn't even want to think about it right now.
Then it got me thinking.... how many keiki is da "norm"? I always thought it was two - or more - and growing up it was li'dat as well as I knew many siblings of friends.
But nowadays da trend has been to downsize in people but upsize in material things, I guess.
Hea's some random facts from da world wide web. Now I didn't want to get full on technical so before anyone gets all hu-hu, da "numbahs" below could/may be recent or years ago and I just pulled random stuff from a quick search on Google not citing any one site in particular except da Census Bureau.
* A shock to me. According to da 2010 Census Bureau, da average child per household is 1. Well, .94 to be exact.
* Half the homes in the US own 3 or more tvs.
* Most homes have 2 bathrooms
* They say an average two person household owns 2 cars and 3 if you have children.
* There are an average of 2 computers per home.
* Average number of shoes for men is 10 or less.
* Average number of shoes for "mature" working women is 25-40.
Ok, there was no shock really in da last one.
