Okay, I thought we were done. We have 2 boys and very happy with our family size. Before DS1 I really wanted a girl. Then after having him I realised, um, boys are fun too :P Then with ds2 I would have liked a girl but it wasn't as bad a desire as it was with ds1. I wasn't disappointed when we found out and of course now I can't imagine any other way. both dh and I agreed we were done after 2 kids. However, recently I've begun to think about how a third child would fit into our family. Dh is still not really considering it but he isn't as adamant as before about stopping at 2. At this point, my girl craving is almost nil since I adore my boys so it's not really even "trying for a girl" that's the motive. I just feel like when the kids are older they might appreciate having another sibling to share their life with (yk, the whole the more the merrier argument). we live in a different continent from all our family so the kids will only have each other when they're older. you know, what if, god forbid, they don't get along? at least they'll have another sibling to turn to etc.
Now the conundrum is I'm not one of those people who feel like their family is incomplete so there's no emotional compulsion propelling me toward a third kid. Also, I'm fairly happy to be out of the baby stage (ds2 is 20months). Maybe I'll study some more and get back into my profession again (kinda excited about that). We're both looking forward to travelling with our kids, watching them grow, and just falling into a household-with-older-kids routine. With a baby I'm gonna have to start at the beginning again. Like I said we have no family support so there's no real break from the kids for either of us.
So what I'm asking I guess is what made you take the leap? What has your third child added to your family in terms of sibling interaction? I totally understand that once you have a child you can't imagine life without them so this may be hard, but if you could go back would you regret not having your third? Ah, I'm not sure what I'm asking, maybe it's all just a ramble but it feels nice to get it out...:)
