Two Kids Vs. Three Kids
Hubby and I have been going back and forth together about having another baby. Yesterday it all made sense. Three kids= More expenses, they would outnumber us, and we do not have any room in the girl's room. Things are so expensive these days. If we wanted to send our kids to camp, it would be way more pricey having more than two kids. We want to be able to invest in the activities they want to do. I am the oldest of six and my parents were always struggling financially and with their relationship. It's difficult to have some couple time when there are six monsters asking you for things 24/7 and what kind of crazy person would want to babysit six kids? Yikes! I didn't get to be a girl scout or play softball like I wanted to because there was no time for my parents to even be there and they didn't have money for that. So hubby and I are pretty set on just keeping it at two.
Yes, it would be nice for the kids to be able to participate in the extras, my husband did the extras while having a single mom, I was not allowed for one reason or the other and I had two working parents.
We don't know what the future is going to hold as far as kids and kid activities, but there's no point in worrying about tomorrow when today is here.
