Pros and cons of having another baby

When you’re having a difficult time making a decision, sometimes it’s best to make a pros and cons list. I’ve done similar before. But here are the pros and cons to having another baby.

Pros

Pregnancy is so fun
There’s so cute and snuggly
They smell good
They don’t talk back
They are so kissable
They sit still for pictures
They’re easily portable
They make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside
They only need boobs and diapers for the first 6 months
They’re fun little people
Babywearing is da bomb.
Potentially another playmate (or play enemy -con)
Lil’ J would love a baby to love on
Big T would… Adjust
I could soak it all in and enjoy those precious moments even more
They make your heart bigger
They put the life in perspective
They’re overall awesome

Cons

They grow up.


It’s time to come to terms with this – you need to have baby #3!

Every once in a while I see a baby and think for awe I miss having a baby but that only lasts for a few seconds and I am snapped back to reality. I have an almost 8 year old daughter and 2 1/2 year old son. My husband and I are looking forward to taking them on some fun vacations in a few years like Disneyland, San Diego and a long RV trip. We are waiting for plane rides and camping until my son is a little older. As much as I love babies both of my kids have challenged me, it was rough having a baby with little help from my LEO husband who works 12 hour shifts of 4 months of nights at a time. So for me I look forward to holding other people’s babies and grand kids in the FAR FAR future!

Oh, but older kids are so awesome. I have six, ages 2-12. My older kids are amazing. The baby days are wonderful, but seeing the fruit of your labor in your older kids is simply amazing. It just keeps getting better!

Well there you have it! Sounds like a no brainier to me!

Martha says:

Wait a minute! You had your kids potty trained at 6 mos… no more diapers??? PLEASE tell me how you did it! I would love to get my 10 mos old out of diapers! Then I can use that extra money for my nails or the spa! LOL…

Sounds like baby #3 is a good idea! Besides older kids are great too 🙂 Of course I am pregnant with my first so I can’t say for sure but my cousins are great!

Keltzie says:

Your children are so cute, it’s your duty to create more! 😉
How could they not want another sibling?? Siblings are such a gift you can give them!

Your choice is clear- how are you going to convince hubby?!
