The Desire for #2
As my little Sidekick is nearing one year old, I am sometimes overcome with sadness that he will be my only child. I cry at times when I realize that I'll never experience another pregnancy and another child's "firsts". I want a second baby more than I wanted Sidekick. I know that sounds horrible, but like any first time Mom, I was nervous about what I was getting myself into, especially being a single mom. I loved being pregnant. I love being a Mom. I know what I am doing, and I think I'm good at it. I love spending weekends and after work with my son. I love experiencing life with him and through his eyes. I love my son more than I ever imagined I could. I love my life more now than before I had him. I want to expand my family, but because daycare is so expensive, I can't. That just kills me that that is the only reason Sidekick will not have a sibling! Quick, Prince Charming, come find me so that we can have a child together. Haha! I become so sentimental when I realize how fast this first year has gone, and that I'll probably never experience another year like this again.
