Life is full of choices. One of those choices, as parents of one child, is whether or not to have another.
One child is wonderful, simple, easy. There are no worries of fairness with time and money. Vacations are cheaper, outings are cheaper. You don't have to worry about one child's soccer game over lapping a dance redial, or one child out shining the other. On the other hand, if you don't have another, your child will lose out on that permanent play mate.. That life long friend.. Would they be envious of other children that had siblings? Or will they be thankful to miss out on the fighting?
Do we have the space? The money? The energy? How will it affect the child we have?
We want to so badly, but how do we decide?
....I suppose I will have to continue this thought when we do.
