You buying any of this?
I’m NOT pregnant girls, no need to clutch your pearls just yet. John may be Irish, but we are NOT having Irish twins up in here. I sometimes feel fear that I’ll get pregnant like…rightthisveryminute… then I remember you need to have sex first.
I wish you girls had told me that as soon as you pop out a child everybody and their mama starts asking you when you’re going to have the next one! It’s like nonstop life stage pressure.
- You find a boyfriend, everyone asks when you’re getting married.
- You get married, everyone asks when you’re having a baby.
- You have a baby, everyone asks when you’re having the next one.
People need to stop and just let your life happen!!
I’ve been answering with things like “oh we’re enjoying having just one for now” and “another one? whoa nelly!” and other equally cheezy responses. The truth is, we want our children close together and plan to start trying for our next little bundle either when Roey turns 1 or 1.5.
Sometimes I look at Rohan and wonder how on earth I’ll be able to love another child the way I love him. Is that even possible? I wonder if I’ll be able to spend equal time with both kids, and worry that Rohan will be my favorite just because he’s automatically my favorite now. I want both of my kids to think they’re the favorite child or know that there is no favorite. And what if baby #2 comes and I short change Roey because of all the time/attention I have to spend on a new infant?
Either way, we’re going to try for our second (and last, if it’s a girl) child late next year, and God willing we’ll be able to have another little bundle to be obsessed with.
Do you get the life stage pressure too? How did you/will you space your children? Did your heart explode with too much love when you had your second? How do you ensure you don’t play favorites with your kids?
