Kristin has become a good friend through our blogging adventures. She is one of my co-founders at Mommies United, and blogs at An Ordinary Life about her not-so-ordinary life!
Kristin is the mother to Kai, a two and a half year old spunky girl. She’s a busy full time college student living in Oregon. While Kristin is not married, she takes time to enjoy her time with her fiance, Delfino. Together they spend time learning and growing as a family. Kristin loves fashion, and often talks about her favorite products at An Ordinary Life. Kai is the light of her life and she enjoys telling everyone about the exciting changes happening to her family.
Currently I live a life with one child. I watch John and Kate, and I read Christine’s blog, here, to get a small taste of how life would be with more children, and I often think about how different my life would be.
You know, last year I swore up and down I didn’t want another baby for five years. That was the plan, and now I can’t believe I am trying for baby number two. How does a person go from not wanting another baby to wanting another, so quickly?
I think it’s partly the shows I watch! I’ve always been a fan of A Baby Story and Bringing Home Baby (both on TLC), but more recently I started watching them again. They show you all of these small beautiful babies, and the excitement of bringing your new baby home and it brings me back. I even find myself in tears (what I really needed was chocolate) watching these shows.
Mostly, though, I think my desire to have another baby is due to the fact that I don’t want Kai to grow up alone. Is that bad? Mind you, I don’t know if I could ever afford a big family, but I am one of five children and I loved the big get-togethers and all the love I had growing up. I wouldn’t trade those memories for anything. Christmas was a huge event in our house and, although it was crowded, there was lots of love.
So, yes, I want another baby to love. I swore I would be one of those moms who only wanted one child, and that was it. But life changes, and I want more… For me, for Kai, for Delfino, and for another little person!
