I made a comment at Mother’s group today and people assumed I was getting clucky.
Not so….definitely not so! I do not want any more kids- let me be clear on that!!
We are well and truly done. Two was all we both wanted. Two fits nicely into our life. Two is all that we can manage financially.
With Alex beginning to use the toilet and the thought of no more nappies, the idea of beginning again makes me cringe.
But that doesn’t mean I can’t be nostalgic.
I liked being pregnant. There were aspects that weren’t good of course, but all in all, it was nice. It was special. Growing a whole new person is magical. And I won’t be doing that again.
Cuddling a newborn baby, watching first smiles, first words, first steps…. I won’t have that again…well, not THOSE firsts anyway.
Being allowed to have that special time off work with your new little bundle, guilt free and very much needed to get used to each other….not again for me.
So no, I’m not clucky and another baby is not on the horizon for us. But it is nice to reflect on how lovely that time was, and how lucky I was to bring two little people into the world.
I’m just feeling a bit nostalgic.
