Before having my daughter (who is now almost 3) I thought I wanted multiple kids. I have 3 siblings myself and love that I have so many treasured childhood memories. My husband thought he wanted 2 kids so I figured we’d at least have that many.
Not so much.
My pregnancy was more difficult than we expected and my daughter’s birth, yeah well I’m kind of a broken record at this point about how traumatic that was. Add to this that she was colicky until she was 6 months old and we both were pretty much past the idea of having another kid. My husband has been more adamant than me about not wanting another child, in large part because of how crappy it was for us for a while but also because 2 kids in daycare is so much $$. Seriously, I don’t know how people do it.
