A lot of kids

So someone asks me today if I am the new lecturer with 'a lot of kids'. I suspected I might be, but I said: A lot? What qualifies as a lot? Two is certainly not a lot; three can't bump me up into that category. A lot of children. My best friend in jr high school had something like 12 or 13 siblings. That was a lot of kids: they drove around in a small white RV to accommodate everyone. I can still count the number of my children on one hand, with some fingers to spare.
