I don't understand why having "too many" kids would be upsetting.
Anybody want to fill me in?
I don't think my kid's procreating is any of my business.
I don't believe there is any perfect time or situation for having kids. Obviously there are things that make it easier, but that does not mean that not having those things is wrong.
My mother has been upset every time I told her I was pregnant. I think her reaction was a combination of fear, remembering her own personal experiences with birth and motherhood, and a family history of being super controlling (her parents were quite ugly to her when she started her family).
I am in a place where I am wondering if I am "done" or not and I can't talk about it with my mother with out her acting like I am crazy for even thinking I might want another. Funny thing is she can't come up with a concrete reason for why I should not. She has lots of silly ones though.
I never want my children to feel like they can't talk to me about having kids or that I am anything less than 100% behind their decision. I want my children to do what makes them happy.
