Deciding on number three

Melanie - posted on 06/29/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am 27 years old and have two children. Ages almost 7 and 5. For years we have been undecided as to having a third.. Now with them getting so big I can't help but constantly think about having number three. I guess because my two are 21 months apart and are best friends, I worry that a third child will throw everything off. I also am just finishing school myself and would like to work at least part time. Please help! Hubs is fine either way but I can't get this lingering feeling off of my mind.

Really only you can decide to have another one.
When I met my 2nd husband I already had 2 boys. I told him I wasn't going to have any more. I changed my mind when my 2nd was 5 and now we have a little girl. The boys love her to bits (they are 2.5 years apart and best friends as well).
The only problem I have found with having 3 children is that everything is bundled for families of 4. If you buy a family ticket for somewhere it's for 2 adults and 2 children. Even buying food the packs are either for 2 or 4 people.
I don't regret having her though and am so glad I changed my mind. You know you will love your child regardless and if you do decide to have another one, just involve the older 2 in the pregnancy.
