1). One was beginning to feel like only a moderate challenge and you fancy yourself an over-achiever.
2). You created some sort of genetic marvel on your first and you wanted to see if lightening really can strike twice.
3). Your toddler started carrying around food simply so the dogs will “play with her”.
4). Sleep is for suckers and you feel comfortable pushing the boundaries of the caffeine content in your breast milk.
5). “Mommies of Two” felt like a much cooler cult than “Mommies of One” and you desperately wanted to learn the secret handshake.
6). You missed your snuggle partner and your toddler will now only hug you when she wants something.
7). You figured your social life was already down the toilet since you now have to beg the checkout clerk for adult conversation.
8). You already purchased what you call the “mini-SUV” because a “Soccer Mom Van” is out of the question.
9). Any family pack of ticket always come with 4 and it’s just wasteful to throw out an “extra ticket”.
10). MTV was offering a reality show for moms with a newborn and a toddler, but that idea got canceled when they realized nobody would watch that.
In all seriousness, there is no one right reason to expand your family (but there are unlimited wrong ones) and if you are anything like our family we thank our lucky stars every day that we did.
