My husband is 25 and I am 23 and in a few short weeks we will be celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary! After being together 5 years, I could not be happier.
We were blessed 9.5 months ago with a beautiful baby girl! Our life is perfect!
However my husband and I really want another child. We would like to have our kids close in age. However we have some Student loans and a credit card that will take us 3-4 years to get paid off. People are saying "Why do you want another when you can't "afford' the one you have.
Yes we have a little bit of Debt but our family is still taken care of. My husband works, and I stay home. My daughter has some of the nicest clothing and toys you could want for a child. She NEVER goes without EVER. Everyone always tells me she is so nicely dressed and is always wearing the cutest clothes. I take good care of my family.
But it hangs over my head all the time. I know we have the debt to take care of it, but that does not stop me from paying the rest of our bills. Such some weeks are tougher then others but we always have food on the table,a modest house to live in and my daughter has her own room.
Am I being Selfish by wanting another child? I have talked to my childless friends who can't concieve and want kids and they say "Just be happy with the one you have, What is your hurry? Am I wrong in wanting another one.
