Ok, the Kid is now a year old. We’ve gotten the hang of things, many people can see that we make great parents and are now begging the question, “Now it is time for another right?” or “The Kid needs a brother or sister right?” Not only that but we are getting pressure from our parents as to when the next little Kid will be running around these parts. I will admit that the pressure for another is not as bad as the pressure to have our first right after we got married. We see how long that took, almost 2 years after getting married.
NO! ABSOLUTELY NO! Not at the moment. Hot Mama and I have discussed this very topic in-depth. We are not ready mentally, physically, and financially. We have thought it would be nice to have another but we are very happy with just one. Personally, I got the bug to have another when the Kid was about 9 months to 11 months but that has past. This is our life now and we like it the way that it is.
There are alot of things that are up in the air right now that could change our life. With that in mind we are waiting to hear what our future holds until we make the decision to add another Kid to our family.
We’ve told friends that there will be no predictions about when we will have another. When the Kid was born a friend of mine almost predicted the day 3 months before we were even pregnant. Since my birthday is Oct. 31st and our anniversary is Nov. 1st we have alot going on the first couple days of Nov. A year after we got married on Oct. 31st we moved in our house and a friend that was helping us move asked us, “What is is with you guys and this weekend? Next year you guys are going to have a baby at this time.” Well what happened? Hot Mama’s due date was Nov. 2nd. NO MORE PREDICTIONS!
I hope this will put to rest some of the pressure for us to have another.
