I can’t help but wonder lately how people with more than 1 child do it. We have always wanted two, and I’m even tempted to say that three is quite a nice number. I have the most amazing sister anyone could have, and even though I don’t see her enough, because I moved to England and she still lives in Holland, we are really close. I would say she is my best friend, but she’s so much more than that. Anyway, I don’t want Elisabeth to be an only child, I want her to have what I have.
But how on earth do people do it? Just having the one wears me out. How will I ever cope with two or more? I’m sure the answer will be “you just do” and I’m sure we’ll do just fine. So many other people do it, so there is no reason why we can’t. And it certainly isn’t putting me off, oh no, bring it on!
But what I would be interested to find out is, does it get twice as hard and tiring with two? Or are you, by the time the second one comes along, so used to the first one that it doesn’t really make a difference? I would love to hear your views.
