Lately I have been seduced by the idea of going for number 3. So many people around me are starting or extending on their families. Many are going for their 3rd little one. Up until about 6 months ago I was almost certain 2 children was the right number of children for your family. I felt this so much as I had such a rough time with my second bub and was so drained from it all. As he headed toward the 2nd birthday mark I started to see how I could go for another child. And the more I think about it, or have thought about it the more I have been warming to the idea. This week I have been having more serious talks with my husband and I have had to take a step back and actually look at my reasons for my change in attitude. What am I actually looking for, do I remember how hard it was. Do I have the capacity within myself at this time in my life to handle a third child. At the moment I am not sure I can answer these questions completely honestly with myself, this in turn has lead me to refocus. If I am not being completely honest and looking at the full picture then this is definitely not the time to be adding a new little person into our story.
