More Babies?
My husband and I can't agree on how many children to have. He only wants two but I would love another one, one day. We have two boys and I would love to try one more time for a girl, but if it was a boy I would still be happy and leave it at three. He says absolutely not, he doesn't want any more. Am I being selfish for not being happy with what I've got, or is he being selfish for putting finances and other things before having another baby? 1 Paula

Oh my, I do not think he is being selfish in the least. Keep in mind that 3 children is not only a lot of responsibility, but two other children craving attention while one needs you more than ever WILL result in stress and frustration. Not to mention that one will go to daddy and the other to mommy; you'll have an odd one out. I certainly don't agree with the above poster where they say "if it happens, it happens!". You seem mature enough to handle the situation better than that, and so you see, if you want another one badly enough, try your husband again in a while. He may feel the stress of having family time while juggling work, finances, and free time for hobbies of this own; so I would give him some breathing space, if you know what I mean, and try him again. If he doesn't want to, he doesn't want to. Spend some time with your kids, trust me, they may not seem like a lot, but they're a lot harder to parent than one would think. Good luck with whatever decision you choose. It's only up to you and your husband, we have absolutely nothing to do with it. Good luck once again and happy new year! 3 lululemon
