I would really like to have at least one more after this one. I’d like to have that excitement of ttc and having people genuinely being excited that we’re having a child, but not for 5-10 more years!
I wanted 3+ until I had Jackson….
I wanted three from myself ( not including my stepson). I still want one more cause I think 4 kids would be great, but with my refusal to do fertility drugs again, idk if that will ever happen.
Well originally the plan was one. Har har har.
As much as I really hate myself for saying this, and trust me I DO hate myself for it…. I don’t feel done yet. Which is ridiculously stupid. I know. Me with three kids? Ludicrous.
The problem is I am constantly looking for a third baby. It’s gotten better lately but often I find myself finding Blake, finding ari, and then looking around for someone else. I or I find myself waiting to hear crying from the hall when I know both my kids are playing right in front of me.
I don’t know what the hell I would even do with a third kid. I’d have to move. And probably work five jobs. Then there’s that pesky thing about me being single and not knowing if I’d really want my kids spaced out that far. Because, at some point id like to be done with babies. And I don’t know if starting allll the way over would be worth it. Plus if it’s a singleton they’re always he odd man out, my kids would have different fathers, if it’s twins again I’d hang myself…
I’m just trying to keep this crazy thought at bay until I get serious with someone. I figure that will be the deciding factor. If the man of my dreams is a single dad then I think I’m cool with being a kickass step mom and I’ll go get my lady bits removed. If he doesn’t have any kids of his own…. It’s on the table.
God I feel absolutely crazy admitting that out loud. I didn’t even know if I wanted one. They’re like cats or something, I just keep wanting more, and I don’t know why.
I used to want 4 until I had 2. Now I have 3 and I feel like that’s a good stopping point for us.
I mean out of 3 kids at least one of them has got to grow up to like me? Right? RIGHT???
Plus I never want to go this long without a cocktail again.
