When are you having another baby
Wednesday, 31 January 2018 | Mummy and Little Me
When are you having another? a simple question it may seem, a question that I have asked many times myself in the past but after 30 years I have finally come to the realisation that it is one that should never be asked.
It slips off the tongue so easily especially from strangers but it is a question that can hurt deep and easily upset.
Now that my daughter is quickly approaching 4 years old it's one that I have been asked frequently especially over the past year but it isn't a question that I myself personally mind but I have got to the stage in life where I can see how easily it may upset someone else.
There are many reasons that it shouldn't be asked which are:
My points being is that we don't know what that mother or those parents have been through to have that one child (or children) and that's why I now believe that we should never ask 'when are you having another?'.
For me personally I couldn't be happier with the one child that I've got and I feel so grateful to have her I couldn't imagine wanting for anything more. I would be perfectly happy if we never have anymore but then again never say never, all's I know right now is that I am not ready for another child and I guess when/if we feel ready for another child then we will discuss it together in private as it should be.
