Such a harmless question. I’ve asked it myself so very many times. “Do you want any more children? Or are you done?”
I don’t know how to answer such a question when asked of me. Do we WANT more? Well. It depends on the day. Do we FEEL done? Um. That depends on how well my children are currently behaving.
The plain truth is that I love being pregnant. I love birthing. I love breastfeeding and newborns and baby breath. I love it all. I cannot imagine saying to myself, “I never want to do this again.”
That being said – three is lots. Three is plenty. Our time and energy is already spread out among our young. We already feel strapped and stressed. I know we could HANDLE another child. I know another child would be loved and welcomed.
But do I know IF we will have any more?
Honestly? No. I don’t.
