How Do You Know When You’re Done Having Children?

How Do You Know When You're Done Having Children?

I’m speaking of children. Babies.

How do you know when enough is enough?

I have two boys. I occasionally consider the possibility of having a little girl (as if I have control over nature), though, I already feel so busy and often overwhelmed my two boys now.

Having a girl isn’t really a basis for having another child, AND, there is obviously no guarantee of one (not that I wouldn’t love another boy in the house).

There is also the issue of my age (33). I’m no spring chicken, though I am in good health, not overweight and somewhat physically fit. It seems that the 30’s is now the new 20’s, but how far should one really push it? I have to think of my age as a grandparent, as I really want to be an active, vibrant one.

Neither myself or husband are ready to officially call it quits or get surgery of any kind. My husband waffles back and forth as well, which makes it more difficult to decide!

I’m really stumped on this one, and unfortunately, I don’t have all the time in the world to make a decision. I would really love to hear your thoughts, and how you knew when you were done, or if you are in the same boat.
