While playing cards…
One evening as we sat at the table playing card game I said to my husband ‘Now or never, I am ready to have another baby’.
What took us so long? Many factors played the part. The labour of my first child was quite traumatic. In all honesty, I can’t cope with pain and just a though of going through it all again, made me shiver.
We had agreed that we were happy with one child and one dog, that made us lovely family of four. However after couple of months friends and relatives kept asking ‘when will you have another one?’ or ‘surely you don’t want him to be all alone’. You know, when others think they know how to live your life better.
Let’s have another toy to play with
‘The best gift you can give to your child is a sibling,’ someone said to me. Oh, really?! Cars, trains and other breakable plastic stuff is not enough? He needs a living being to play with. Obliviously our dog does not pass the mark. Apparently it must be another human.
What a nonsense! As if child is some kind of toy! It is human being, for god sake.
When pregnant women start to pop up everywhere
That happened first time round. Suddenly they showed up wherever I went. Streets, supermarkets even libraries were full of them. I am sure it did not happened just all of the sudden. I just started to notice them more and I knew I was ready for second one. Just like that.
Even though I was scarred to death and the frequent scan appointments did not make it any easier, we have both made it just fine. Now here she is, our very own baby Zara.
The perfect daughter, sibling and friend, but not a toy!!!
After all it was easier the second time round. At least they were right at one thing. But perhaps I was just lucky. Once the Luck sat on my shoulder.
