Attempts At Adulthood

Ten Vignettes For People Attempting a Second Child

The lovely people at http://www.glowing.com asked if I would write a guest blog for them this week.  

Since they deal with women who are trying to get pregnant they asked if I could write one about how hard it is to try for a second child when you already have a first child.  And I said I would love to as long as I could make the disclaimer that I am writing this as someone who is not currently trying for a second child because, dear God, I have just one child and already most of my plants are dead and I’m only brushing my hair once every three days.

But for those of you ready to jump into the fray, here are:  

Ten Vignettes on Trying for Your Second Child

    We never attempted to create another child so much as we discovered later that it happened despite best efforts to the contrary. THREE TIMES. Other than that the scenarios are identical.

    As a parent to one (trying for #2 – mostly because it feels like the right thing to do at this point in my life) I found this to be hilarious. Story of my life. (This post – not the One Direction song). Great post!

    Maybe this is what could have happened if you had TRIED to have a second child. (Love the poo on neck vignettes)

    I have just discovered your blog and I’m your new fan. So I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. If you choose to accept the award head on over to Needle and Ted to see what you need to do.

    It took us 3 YEARS to get preggers with our middle child (some one else carried and gave birth to our oldest, then I took her.) When we decided we want to get preggers a 3nd time we thought we’d best start early. It took us 3 SECONDS! Surprise! I wasn’t even ready for it either.
