The Next Child

I'm an only child... and it can be rather lonely sometimes.  I watch siblings interact with each other and I feel sad sometimes that I will never have that connection with someone as I get older.  This is why I want Jacob to have sibling(s?) who are close in age, and I feel most only children feel the same way.  The sad part about this is that childcare is extremely expensive, so I don't think we'll be able to afford another child for awhile.  I wish that we could have another child soon, but it's just not in the cards. *Sigh*

Just some random thoughts...


  1. aaawwww i'd have a million kids if money were no problem! maybe something will come up or you can switch to part time and get to stay home with the kids! you still have time!

  2. Same sentiments here although I have lots of siblings from my fatherside and a sister whom I grew up with. Yes, its fun to have a little sister or a brother, you have an instant bestfriend. I also want to have another child soon but thinking about the high cost of living here in Japan makes me say "ohh not yet". If only its not that expensive to raise a child, unlike in my home country Philippines, you have someone around to take care of your kids while you're working.

    BTW, nice to meet you here. I might come her often. Keep us updated :)
