Do You Want Another Baby?

The other day Lucas and I walked by a couple who were changing their baby in the back of their van.

He asked me, "Mom, do you want to have another baby?"

I hesitated before answering him. Do I? I have to admit there are times I get 'baby envy' and miss those baby days. I miss the feel of a new life growing inside of me. I miss the days of a baby discovering their world.

But then I remember the seemingly endless nights requiring multiple feedings, nursing pads, diaper bags, dirty diapers etc etc etc. Pros and cons to everything.

I answered Lucas, "Umm...I think I'm pretty good with having you and Kayla. A boy and a girl. I don't think I need to have another baby."

Then I turned the tables on him, "Do YOU want me to have another baby?"

He enthusiastically said, "YEAH!"

I was a bit surprised by that and questioned him, "You do? You want there to be a baby in the house?"

He said, "Yeah! No wait. 2! 2 more babies."

Me, "Two?! Why do you want me to have TWO more babies?"

His reasoning was simple enough, "Because I have two pillows on my bed and Kayla has two pillows on her bed. And because we don't have enough friends."

He can be so sweet, but I don't think that was reason enough to convince me to have another baby! Sorry son, guess we're just going to have to make more friends. I'm not getting any younger and I think my days of having babies are over.

Although I do think he would make an awesome big brother!

Happy Mother's Day!

Jacob and Julianna still ask for a baby too. I think when kids feel the love they want to share the love. I know at my age my baby days are over, sometimes I do get a little wistful though.

How beautiful and seemingly so simple to kids! cooper and pepper said the same thing so I had another baby and still Cooper asks for more! 3 is great but seriously nuts most of the time! ;) loved that Lucas found a hobby that is all his and I can relate wholeheartedly to that balance adventure!
