My daughter is almost 2 (august) and I'm at the point where I think I want another child. I think I'd enjoy the baby thing the second time around and I think my daughter would be a great big sister and even enjoy it and be hepful. I also want her to have someone to play with in the future (not that she doesn't have friends) but I also think a sibling to 'lean on' in the future would be a good thing. I know my husband would also love the second child, but he's voiced concerns of taking attention away from our first and has even said along the lines of having the time or capacity/energy to deal with 3 peoples problems/days instead of just 2. I wonder if maybe there is a reason he's not telling me, but I'm thinking I just need to find a way to calm his 'fears'. I don't want to have another one if he doesn't, but at the same time, i want another one. I think "us" time might be his biggest fear.
Any advice on what I could/should say to him?
