Almost the only lonely only (try saying THAT fast)

It seems that everywhere I turn I see people who're having their second babies soon after their first.

First there was that friend whom I heard from about once a year - the last two times were birth announcements; then a friend in the UK, whose daughter is around The Little Madam's age, recently sent me photos of their newborn second daughter; then another friend, whose son is four months younger than TLM, told me on Monday that she's well into her first trimester of offspring number two; then the very next day I meet a lovely couple with an 18 month-old bum-shuffler (bum-shufflers of the world, unite!) and her not-much-younger sibling.

Now, I've already posted about my ambivalence regarding a possible Little Sir or Littler Madam so I won't go into it again. But all this sibling-creation going on around me is definitely forcing the subject back into my already-crowded little brain.

Plus, it was a good excuse to post a silly subject title.

I think the reasoning is to get it over with. If you want more kids it's nice to have them all at once while you still remember how to deal with babies, ha,ha..

This subject has been going around in my head too. My thing lately is that I am not sure if I want another child. Baby’s are such hard work. Yes my son is usually always happy, but he is a lot of work. I want to work and child care is so expensive. I am also loving my sexy body. Such a hard decision. I will probably have another one when Gregory is five or something.

They sure are hard work, aren't they?
