My DH & I were talking this afternoon, & this is not the first we have touched on this subject...the subject of how many kids & money.
I hate that LP isn't even here yet & I worry about if there will be a 2nd baby. I worry about the money for a sibling for LP. I think about all we would have to go through again for another baby.
I've always wanted 2 kids. I have a brother & it always just seemed right. I have always wanted 1 of each.
My dad is an only child & I remember when we were children & my brother & I would fight & he thought it was weird & there was something wrong with us. Fast forward to now & I see my dad dealing with his parents, as they age, as an only child & it's sad.
I have nothing against only children, but I just always felt it was not for me. I always just knew, 2 kids was good for me.
Here I am though, as we get closer to LP & closer to our lives changing & I wonder...is there a way we can afford a 2nd child? Yes, at this moment we can, however, in the long run would we be able to provide LP with all we want to? I want LP to travel the world with us & go to the college of his/her choice. I want the world for LP & want to be able to give that!
I worry, will LP understand if we do not adopt a sibling? Will he or she be mad that they do not have a brother or sister or somebody like them?
All these questions & more run through my head. I just want to make the right decision...but is there ever a right decision?
What did you do? How did you know it was right?
