My son, Brayden, is almost 2 1/2 and the topic on my mind lately is another baby. It kind of hit me like it did before I had Brayden. Some call it baby fever. Once the idea is there it is on your mind a lot.
Like most moms who are thinking of having another baby, be it #2 or #5 there is that thought when is the right time?
There is no magic number if years to have between kids or a perfect formula for planning kids. And realistically once you want another it may not even happen right away. The planning part is all up to the universe.
I am an only child and thought I would be OK with one kiddo but when I think about our family I think four is the number for us. And who knows maybe in 5 years I will entertain the idea of three kids...LOL...even though I laugh at that now.
I tell myself well when we have more money would be a good time or when we have a bigger place or when Brayden is older and in school. But really none of that will matter. We adjusted well and quickly to having B, special needs and all. So whatever the circumstances we adjusted and adapt to change.
Although a magic formula would be nice it's just not how it works. We just need to dive in and take a chance.
What are some things you considered before having another child?
