Hi ladies. I currently have 2 boys (5 and 18 months) and we are considering a 3rd.
There are a lot of cons (childcare, probably a new car, possibly a new home or a renovation, my age of 34/35 and pregnancy in general). But the pro is a big one... I always wanted 3. My husband is awesome and a complete partner in housework and being with the kids. We are a good duo and have made 2 really cute kids. The pull is there to go for a third for both of us, but I'm just worried. What if the time we take from the 1st 2 makes them resent us? We can pull it off but our resources would be stretched. Are we bad parents because we would have less "extras" to give the first 2? We both work full time and that cannot change, nor would I want it to... but is it selfish to have a 3rd knowing I would be a rare "working mom of 3"?
EDIT: Please disregard the old signature from trying for our second till I can fix it.
