Jason and I have been talking about this a lot lately. We both imagined that we would have more than one child but I cannot foresee a time when we will feel completely prepared to add another child to the mix. I do dream of having another child around someday but then I see how difficult things can be with one child and I honestly wonder how mothers juggle two (or more) children.
For instance, Jordan can fight me over the simplest of things. Just getting her in her car seat can turn into an all out battle of the wills. Truth be told, it's a battle of the wills and a battle of physical strength. The constant climbing is another tricky one. I have to be ready to rescue her from falling at least ten times a day. I'm sure it's actually more. What about baths? Naps? Getting two or three children in and out of the grocery store? (Not to mention actually shopping with multiple children.)
I know it's especially hard right now because Jordan is a toddler and they present many challenges at this stage. There are a few mothers on my BB that are pregnant and at least one who is due pretty soon. Sometimes I feel like I hardly have the energy to even make a baby, let alone take care of one.
Am I just lazy? Or is everyone crazy? Will there be a day that we just feel ready?
