I like Osama's lateral thinking. That kind of problem solving will take him far, so what Ossie said.

Go to the party.

I have two.

1. Should I have a second baby even though it's hard work and expensive?

2. Should I switch jobs to one that is better paid but an unknown quantity (current job is v much a comfort zone and I neither love it or hate it)?

1. - have the baby

2. stay, if you have the second baby; leave if you decide not to.

Second one would be easier if the first one was 21 already Tricky!

Why do you think yes to 2 babies JC?

It may not be my choice anyway, being 40.

Interesting. I read that once you hit 40, 90% of your eggs are chromosonally abnormal. That's another con - increased chance of downs etc.

have more than 1 kid

3-Dux is (I assume) an only child. you don't want 3-Dux being the one visiting you in a care home do you?

irrefutable logic

There is no way to rationalise being/wanting to be a parent.

On one hand, I believe it is the best thing I have ever done. On the other, my time/life is not my own anymore, which is crushing.

The only hope of recovering a semblance of pre-child life, is to stick with only one. And yet, I held my neighbor's newborn this week and very much wanted another.

No logic.

I didn't really have any expectations going in to it, Clergs. What I can tell you is that, for me, the really heart-squeezing feeling of love didn't kick in until he started to get a little older. In the early stages I was just fixated on protecting him and nurturing him. Now I lie in bed in the mornings, looking forward to hearing him wake and planning what we will do for the day. And I often just sit there looking at him at marvelling. It's V much like being in love.

Tricky what about play dates? That way you can pick the nice ones and send them home when you've had enough.

Nappies/ doesn't bother me. The things I most hated were - the 6 weeks of nausea at the beginning, sleep training, and the phase when they're mobile enough to get hold of everything but not clever enough to Realise that some thing isdangerous/disgusting etc.

Righto -sounds like a plan.

Also, how do you know that your mum didn't love you?

Two are easier than one.

The second is easier than the first

This is based ebthrely on my subjective experience not peer reviewed research FAOD

I didn't get morning sickness with either of mine - one was a hell beast and the other slept through from three weeks.

hm. do you think if a person doesn't get morning sickness they might also have a magical sleeping and continent baby?

With a baby that size just think of all the stretching.

No but the second became spontaneously continent at night at about ten months. I continued to put a nappy on her just in case, but she never weed or 'd in her sleep beyond that age.

She's now a tyrannical 5 year old mind you
