Out of curiosity, I checked the price of diapers last wk and almost passed out. Now I hear Plastic bottles have some sort of chemical. Baby Food in a jar isn't that great. Due to rising costs, 2 or even 3 incomes is needed which means fewer hrs with the kiddies.
I got 2 sister in laws who were fine with 2 kids. When each had their 3rd child, they were constantly stressed. As for me , I am sticking to one kid. I know I can deal with one kid. Life is too expensive and there is too much going on in this crazy world to bring another innocent life.
I already posted about not having another due to money but honestly, my kids never cost me much at all until they were past age 6 or 7. I used cloth diapers, breastfed, and never gave them jarred baby food. Even as little kids post-nursing and diapers, they don't eat much and are happy with simple toys and simple amusements.
Now, pre-teens and teens, another story. Yikes on the food costs!!
So one more would not cost for a while but I fear I'll never finish school for myself if that were what we did.
