Are you ready for # 2? This is the question that I have been hearing as of late. I had lunch with a friend who asked me if I had thought about having the second baby. The truth is that I have and that the husband and I have decided to wait until Isa was older (she is 14 months right now).
Another reason why we want to wait is because we want to focus on BABY THOUGHTS and we want to give it two years before we make any major decisions. We are also postponing buying a bigger house for the same reason.
But many of my friends are thinking about baby #2 and in fact two of them are already pregnant so I have babies on my mind. I also would love to be on mat leave again and have the whole year with my new baby and Isa and hang out with my friends and their kids but this is just not very realistic.
I have to think about what will be best for me (professionally) and the entire family...so we will hold off on # 2. I just wonder if it is best to have children close together or far apart? Though the most important thing is that you are ready mentally and physically.
We shall see but I don't think that it will happen anytime soon....
