Now that the son is coming to two years old, the question of having No. 2 often pops up when strangers also often asked how old is he.
And also often my answer would be a straight No. And often they will give a look of surprise and asked why? And because one is enough for us. Because one is more than we could afford. Because one is all that we need. Because one is taking up all our energy. Because it feels like we've poured out all our love on this one. And the husband has also maintained the fact that he could never love another one as much as this first born.
Well for sure many would argue the need for siblings and all the pros of having one or two (if you're the adventurous kind, I salute you) to play with. And this is also strange considering the fact that both of us has siblings too, so why the need to have one child?
Call us cruel, selfish or whatever, but I do believe responsible parenting also stems to responsible family planning you know. We're not going to have another child just so he can have a playmate but on the other hand, we'll be struggling like crazy to make ends meet just to feed the whole family. So if we're having difficulties just bringing up one child, then I think we should stop at one.
But what about making sacrifices? Love conquers all sorts of stories? Well, if it works for you, great! But if it doesn't, please use a condom. The world has enough problems of its own for you to contribute to its growing population.
Anyways, this is sounding a tad too heavy for Friday. I don't mean to be this angsty but just so you know that I have other emotions other than being happy, heh.
Here is another video of him wearing one side of my shoe and taking a stroll around the house.
