My son is 5 1/2 and been asking for a brother or sister for about 2yrs. I run a home daycare and I love kids and my son love to play with the little ones and help when he gets here from school. 1 yr ago I though I was pregnant and we rush to tell my son since I was 2 happy but few days we find out I wasn't and my son got sad. I also want to have another one but my husband keep changing his mine and his real answer is that he is not sure. When we had my son my husband got in depression and I was also in depression for a few months last year but that never stop me been a good mom or love kids and I'm good.To tell you the true I'm getting tired of keep asking my husband to have another one and my son always ask. I want to answer my son something so my son don't feel bad. Please help me

Because you are still deciding whether to have another baby or not. Just be honest!

Yes Jodi we talk and my husband sometimes say yes and sometimes is not sure but in the mid I want to know what kind of explanation give to my son when he ask.. Like he ask last night and I told him that God knows when would be the right time but I know he would keep asking and my husband is not sure. What can I say?

I think you need to sit down and ask your husband this, because it sounds like the two of you have not made a joint resolution on this issue. To me, it sounds like you would like another one but your husband wouldn't, so that needs to be sorted out. You don't want to tell your son anything that might eventuate to become untruthful. I think perhaps your first step would be to resolve between yourself and your husband what you actually want as a family.
