THE MISADVENTURE TALKS: HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT IN BETWEEN KIDS?

6 Permalink

As I sit here and pour my third cup of coffee this morning, sometimes I wonder…

Do I just like coffee because of the cream and sugar I put into it?

Do I just like baked potatoes because they’re a vehicle to eat butter and sour cream?

Do I just like to work out so that I can eat dessert?

Do I just like to take a shower so that I can enjoy a glass of wine alone? (Ref: here)

I believe the answer to all of these questions is a resounding YES.
But who cares, right? Do you.

Introducing “The Misadventure Talks” a blog series that addresses questions we all think about.

I’ll write a question weekly that I’ve been asked lately¬†in the parenting genre. ¬†Then I’ll give my two cents. ¬†Then you’ll give your two cents. ¬†The hope is that all of these cents will add up to a whole pile of point of views that others can use to curate, eliminate, or validate their own.

Rules of Engagement:

  1. Don’t be a dick.
  2. Write your thoughts in either the comment section of the relevant blog post (scroll down) or on my social media pages under the relevant post.  Tag a friend that you think might be interested.
  3. Ask questions! Here, there, anywhere, even in private at kqsales@gmail.com
    This will help us create new content and keep the village happy.
  4. You don’t have to be a parent to write in, just #1 please.
  5. Remember, these are POV’s – not right or wrong answers up for debate (ref: #1)

This week’s topic:

Q:
“I’m trying to figure out timing with our next baby. ¬†I don’t think I want “Irish twins” but I’m not sure I should wait. ¬†What’s a good gap between children?”

MIM’S TAKE: (Well, that looks an awful lot like Mistake, doesn’t it? And isn’t this all just trial and error? Keepin’ it.)

I wasn’t ready to have another baby both physically and mentally for a year or so after my first. I didn’t exactly plan the timing difference, I just went with what was right for me. ¬†In my opinoin¬†there is no “right” age gap between children. ¬†If you are ready for another, just go for it without overthinking. ¬†If you want another but you don’t think you are ready, wait to see if that changes. ¬†If it doesn’t but you still know you want another one,¬†just go for it.¬† Your child will be yours and your story will be yours, exactly how it was meant to be…no matter how much you try to plan it perfectly.”

What was your story? Did you have Irish Twins? Did you have an exact plan for multiple children?
Did you wing it?
