It’s funny when everything seems calm and nice I always get the urge to change things. Like when your having a nice calm afternoon at home on a Saturday and decide to go to the store or the park or somewhere and the next thing you know it’s getting dark and your exhausted from dragging the kids out and everyone’s tired and cranky.
Well currently life is nice and the kids are all at good sweet ages and I’m of course having the urge to have another baby!
This decision is such a tough one to make with so many factors involved. Some of which that I’ve thought about are money, effect on other kids, lifestyle change, living situation, body changes…..etc….
The biggest factor for me would be the lifestyle change. Caelum is now 17 months old and becoming easier and more mobile etc and with a new baby we go back to square one. Another big factor is time- I already feel stretched as a mom between the 3 that I have and I wonder if I would be able to give them each what they need from me.
How do you decide how many kids to have? I know many people who that choice is made for them by infertility or extra accidental pregnancy….. etc…
Someone told me recently that “one kid has to eventually be the last”, but which one?
