For those of you perched on the wall and wondering which camp (one child or two) to jump into...
Here's evidence to convince you that
a) the second child will find ways to entertain herself.
Hmm...my fingers look interesting!
b) the second child will also often entertain and pamper the older one!
c) the two together will indulge you every now and then - let you take pictures, finish your lunch and then attend to them! When you see them bond this way, I can guarantee you will feel that it was worth going through all the pregnancy pains again!
d) You can relive every precious moment, every little milestone again with the second one - except this time you will* be more relaxed as a parent and enjoy it peacefully.
e)You will love your first child in a whole new dimension - in the role of the older sibling. You will marvel at the love he is capable of giving to someone who supposedly is now competing for your attention!
