At this time in my life, as a tote around a toddler and he rests comfortably on the shelf that his sister has created for him (being my big 'ol prego belly), Ive had multiple people ask the question, "So are you done now??" To be honest, I dont think so. Jack is the mellowest kid. If his sister turns out anything like him, we could keep going. So my response to everyone is simply, we have to wait and see how this next one is.
But Jack. I tell you, what kid, er toddler eats what you put on his plate?? We had taliapia, califlower and something else and the kid dug it. No complaints, and even my husband commented that the fish was a bit fishy! At bedtime one of us says, "Jack, are you ready to go night-night?? Go upstairs??" And Jacks response is, drop what ever is in his hand and say, "Upstairs??, Upstairs??" And his little feet pitter-patter to the stairs. If we are not close behind, he comes back and says, "Mama comming, daddy comming, Roscoe (the dog) comming?" And he starts heading up the stairs on his own. He knows the routine; its toons in mom & dads bed while we put on jammies and check his sugar and give him insulin, then read a book and off to bed where his animals are taking over the crib, but he cant go without any of them!! Next is putting him down; he asks for the blanket, his monkey, bunny, elephant, and lately also the racoon and beaver, then says, "Tuck," so we tuck tuck tuck him and his animals into bed. He smiles, says night-night and we leave. He chats for a bit with his animals, then hes out. No fighting, no crying, no climbing out of the crib. I swear, hes like this with most things. Sure he can be demanding at times, but what 2yr old cant be?? So if Sophia is anything like Jack, we just might be adding another. If she doesnt sleep, cries all the time and we are just exhausted from a day with the two of them, well, we might be done. Only time will tell. As of right now, Jack is our Golden child. We ARE hoping for another.
