To Have More Children??

I am torn on whether I want to have more children or not. There are days when my children are well behaved and I get a glimmer of hope that someday I would like to have more. Then there are days when my children don't sleep well and I try to convince myself I am totally done. I know I could handle more if it was put in my lap but I am not sure if I can convince myself to do it because I want to. The Man would love to have one or two more children. He doesn't get the full effect of the children as he works long hours and because he is in the military he has to leave home every so often with me to take care of everything on my own. He is a very good help when he is home. He loves to play with the kids and read to them and help them learn new things. He is also a great help with house chores when I ask. I didn't get my tubes tied after my 3rd because I wasn't sure if I was done or not. It is now 11 months later and I still just don't know. I hope that someday I will be able to come to a set decision that I will not regret.


  1. You know, I just don't know if I'll ever be done having kids. Even if my body gives out and I can't carry any more on my own, I'll want to adopt. Being that my hubbs is in the military too working insane hours I can understand a lot from where your coming from.

    Just letting you know someone else struggles with the decision too.

  2. Thanks. We have been having talks about this recently and it still isn't getting any easier.
