one or two: part 2

What is holding me back?
1. Finances. It's 900 per month for K to go to her french montessori preschool. With baby #2, we would've to move her out of there to a cheaper daycare, so it would be 1400 a month for childcare. Our health insurance will bump up another 300.

2. Space. We live in 852 sq feet, so we may have to consider moving. Or think about a "Tiny house" lifestyle.

3. Pregnancy.

4. Anxiety. I have anxiety issues and worry about birth and the baby and all that.

1. K is so amazing. We would have another one and it would be even more amazing.

2. We would have a bigger family. I'm pretty much an orphan so the family I have now is the family I make.

3. It would be nice to be old and have more kids.

It's a tough decision, that's for sure. I mean, our number 2 is already 20 months old, and much as I love him, half the time I'm not even sure we made the right choice in having him.

My main argument for going for it was your #3. I tend to focus on long-term goals, and figured that, in the long run, I'd be happier with a second child than without. Luckily, finances were not a big issue for us with up to two --but a third would definitely put our stop to our ability to travel abroad or even to move around, so we made a hard stop at two.

Wishing you peace with whatever you choose :).
