I am starting to get tired of being asked when I am having a second child. There are the usual statements about how our daughter needs a sibling and someone to play with. Sadly, it just isn’t happening. I am just so grateful that we have one and that didn’t happen for a long time. It is getting a bit depressing to be constantly faced with the ‘when are you having another one’ question when it isn’t happening for us. I mean what do I say? I don’t like to say ‘we’re trying’ because then everyone looks expectantly when I see them (had that before and it is so depressing). I just laugh it off but every time I’m asked it is a constant reminder of how things aren’t coming together. I hope that this is the year!
