    I'm just not sure. I feel like finances prevents me from seeing what I really want because all I see is daycare and college tuition. We live in an expensive city. We also don't have any family near us to help. One child seems to be what we can afford and handle without support.

    There's part of me that wants another, if our situation were better suited to it. Bea loves other kids so I'm sure she'd love a sibling!

    Maybe I'll eat my words one day but I really only want girls, which kind of prevents me from wanting another. I love my girl!

    I think about this probably too much, considering that so many women end up having a smaller or larger number of kids than they ever intended. Most days I just want one child. One that I can give all of my energy and focus and resources to, and only have to deal with pregnancy and labour once. However I grew up with 3 siblings and I loved having a sister 13 months younger than me. It absolutely made my childhood happier and more fun, so it is hard to say I would ‘t want to give that opportunity to my own. Nowadays my sisters and I don’t really get along, so you have to take into account that not every sibling you bring into the world is going to be a “friend for life”. I think the same for people who say they need kids to take care of them when they’re older. NO guarantee they will do that!
    I think about finances and climate change too, but I don’t factor in college tuition as much as others do. I don’t think you HAVE to pay for college for your kid. I pay off community school classes as I go, and I don’t hold that against my parents.
    Lastly, I REALLY want to adopt, but I also want to experience pregnancy at least once, but I don’t want many children so... have one biological and one adopted? Good thing we’re not planning to have kids just yet. I figure that life will decide for us. We make plans and God laughs!
