Several friends of ours who have more than one child have told us that one child is a breeze, but adding a second child to the household makes for a very busy home. Oh I can hardly wait – no really – I can wait.
My mom always used to tell us kids growing up: “don’t wish your life away!” I have always had that in the back of mind about wishing for time to pass. Rare do I wish for time to pass. I think the exception to this rule was when I was in the Navy back in the 1980’s and I could not wait to get to the end of my enlistment. But for the most part, I generally do not wish for time to pass – I’m especially not going to start now with wishing for the second child to arrive.
