10 Reasons To Have Another Kid

Preface: I just got back from a family vacation so until I have a chance to blog properly, I’m linking to another piece that I wrote for Circle of Moms.  If you really want to be entertained, read some of the comments below the article.  People getting all riled up about comedy – I don’t know how to explain it!

My partner and I are trying for our second baby. Given my advanced maternal age, the good old rolls in the hay aren’t cutting it, so we’re facing fertility testing and probable treatments, looming large and expensive.

I’m also cranky from my no wine or caffeine pre-conception diet.  So I thought now would be a good time to remind myself why I want that second kid so bad. Here goes:

1. How else can I become the loveable matriarch of a wacky multi-generational family like on Parenthood or Brothers & Sisters? (I’m especially looking forward to the dinner parties at my house where everyone talks over everyone else and stunning secrets are revealed.)

2. So that I can gripe about my “kids” — much more impactful when plural.

For reasons #3-#10, continue to Circle of Moms…

(Be back soon with fresh stuff.)

    I agree with Brigitte. Children are no laughing matter …. Except mine, at least the first 3. And the welfare checks really helped with tuition to Harvard. Amy should get some perspective. Children are a curse, but a new car is forever. It is a tough trade-off.
