Once upon a time there lived a lady who dreamed of getting married and having 3 or 4 kids.

She grew up and met the man of her dreams. They fell in love and got married.

They got pregnant and had a baby girl. The lady no longer wanted ANY more children.

5 1/2 years have passed. The lady thought she could fool her uterus. She was wrong.

She secretly wished for just 1 more bundle. Boy or a girl would make no difference.

She secretly has been picking out names.

Her daughter promises to throw pennies in a wishing well to wish a baby out of her tummy and then wish after the baby is born that her mommy's tummy will go back to normal. (I need one of those wells.)

The lady and her Prince have decided to have another child. She is scared but excited at the same time.

Will she love this baby as much as her precious girl? Will her girl be too jealous of a new baby?

Will she have enough money to care for the baby? What if she CAN'T have another baby.

She prays that all will work out but is sure she will take the next step.

How did you know you wanted more than 1? Did you make the right choice?


  1. I am so excited for you! Good luck!

  2. I had the same worries and fears that you are having. And let me tell you--you love them the same, she won't be jealous, she will be more of a "little mommy", and somehow it financially all works out. Good luck--this is SO exciting!!

  3. I had my second one 7 years after the first and I was terrified! My oldest was already in 1st grade (so, at school all day), and it was hard to start over with round-the-clock feedings and diaper changes, etc.

    For me it wasn't a decision but a big, big surprise (I was supposedly infertile, so both were surprises, actually). I quickly adapted to it, though, and my daughter is one of the best things that ever happened to me. Hard to imagine life without her now. :-)

    Good luck!!

  4. Congratulations!!

    You worry now but when the time comes, you'll have more than enough love to go around.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for your comments on my blog, I appreciate them.

  5. I second everything everyone has said thus far. Good luck! As for having more than one, I always knew I wanted at least two. I thought 4 or 5 actually, but found Mr. Right way too late in life for that to happen!

    Did I make the right decision? I wouldn't trade Harry (my two year old) for anything in the world. He completes our family.

  6. I have a feeling this story will have a happy ending.

  7. YAY! That's wonderful, congratulations! I also wanted several kids until I had the first one. And then I didn't want any more AT ALL. But then one day, like you, I woke up and wanted a second child. Man, I hope that doesn't happen again! Three is too many.

  8. So exciting! Good luck!

    I never believed people when they told me that I would love a second just as much as my first. I mean, my oldest and I were a TEAM. It was us against the world (until Hubby came home from work, that is). Boy, was I wrong. Now I can barely remember not having number two around. It's like there was a place holder for her or something, because she was always definitely meant to be here.

  9. Congrats on your decision! And good luck!

    Yeah, my husband and I keep going back and forth about having another one. On the one hand, we can't really afford another baby. On the other hand, I would love to have another one. Then again, I can barely handle Bugaboo as it is. But then again, she is the cutest little thing (when she's not screaming her head off) and it would be wonderful to have another.

    In the end? We just leave it in God's hands. If we're meant to have another, I believe God will provide.

  10. we use to want to have four (in theory, would still like four). we had griff, and wow - was that rough. we had dar to give griffin some sibling rivalry (he needed it).

    and then came the flood of food allergies and a gross amount of debt and lo, no more kids.

    but yay! for you! best wishes for a healthy, happy addition that sleeps through the night!

  11. I think it may have a happy ending too! We just have one 3.5 and think this is it, but after reading this maybe we will change our mind down the road.

  12. We have two and I was so done but now suddenly I want another. I'm almost done with the preschool years and it would be INSANE of me to start again, right? Honestly, I don't know if it matters how many kids we end up having I think I will always love babies and long for one in my arms. I am one of eight kids and five of my siblings have one child, one has three, and two of us have two.

  13. I definitely want more than one... I look at my eight month old son and feel that same deep longing I felt in the year before we got pregnant. It's something deep inside me demanding attention. There are so many circumstances working against us, that I don't know if it will happen, but I know the desire is there.


Those laughing with me...or at me.
