I was thinking about how my husband and I arrived at the decision to have another child. I’m sure that a lot of couples like us have been asked a few times after having their first child when they plan to have another. And just like us they might’ve answered the same thing. We don’t know. We didn’t know that we wanted to have another baby. Not at first. And thinking about it now, it might have been because of time that’s why we arrived at a decision. And even after deciding, I’m still not sure about our decision to have another child.
I’ve heard a lot reasons from couples on why they decided to have or not to have a second child. And I think I’ve considered most of the same reasons in our own decision. One thing is for sure. Deciding to have another child was harder for us than deciding to have a child.
