MASSACHUSETTS, USA: Bittersweet knowing…

When I was younger I always envisioned myself with a large family.  I thought for sure I’d be a mother of four.  When my husband and I talked about starting a family, he seemed to dream about a large family, too.  I am currently a mother of two little girls, ages 6 and 2.

A friend of mine asked me when my youngest daughter was only six months old if we’d be adding a third to our little family.  I brushed the question off with, how could I possibly think of another baby when I was just pregnant 6 months ago?!

You know what it’s like, if you are dating someone everyone always asks you “when are you going to get married?”  Then, when you get married they ask “when are you going to have a baby?”  After you have a few kids, “when are you going to have another baby?”  What’s the next round of questions after that?

Which brings me to my next question… when do you know you are done having children?  (more…)
