When listener Jacquie emailed us this question, we knew right away we wanted to answer it on the show:
I am contemplating having one more baby. [Having three kids] is pretty unusual in my area/social circles so I don’t have a lot of people to ask. What surprised you about having a third baby? Are there things I should know?
Episode 7 is all about being “done” (or not) having babies. How did we know we were done? Do we ever get over that urge to snuggle a newborn? What happens when time isn’t on your side or you and your spouse disagree on growing the family? And, to answer Jacquie’s question specifically, what are the logistical and psychological differences between having two kids and having three?
First, though, we shared a moment from our week via Instagram. To get the story behind Meagan’s hot pink suspenders and Sarah snuggling a squishy baby (NOT her own), listen to the episode! (And follow us at @MeaganFrancis and @PowersOfMine for more Instagramming fun!)
