For the last 3 years at least Monkey has been asking for a baby sister. For those who are new, about 5 years ago, I had a miscarriage of a very wanted child and as fate or some other bastard has decreed it, we have not been able to have another.
It got to the point where my obsession was ruining my relationship with my partner.
We put it on the back burner for the last year or so, plus with being made homeless, the whole benefit disaster and just everything else its not happened and its certainly not been the right time to even consider it.
Now we are settled, it has come back to the forefront of my mind (not sure on my partner) however while I would love another child, I am just not sure if it is doable moneywise. While apart from the initial outlay baby’s are pretty cheap. Its as they get older, they become more expensive.
However Monkey, has started asking if we are going to have another child. I have said that we don’t have plans and he starts saying how tough it is to have 2 children. That he is not sure we can manage a baby.
I have no idea where he is getting this from and I am a bit worried, he says its just a thought in his head. So who knows, but when he says its tough to have two children, part of my brain is screaming out with, maybe but I would love to give it a go.
