With the upcoming arrival of our second baby, my husband and I have been thinking more and more about how things will be changing with the family dynamics.
Even though we are less stressed about certain things this time around, we still have plenty of questions and concerns about what to expect.
Deciding on Having More Than One Kid
To prepare myself and other couples for this transition, I asked J Money from Budgets are Sexy and Rockstar Finance to be on the show.
In today’s episode I asked J for his take and thoughts on:
- the differences between getting ready for the first and second child
- when they decided to have more than one kid
- how they found the right childcare for their family
- the financial and parental realities of keeping up with two young ones in the house
Happy to say that he relieved some of my concerns and gave me some ideas on how we can balance work with our soon to be bigger family.
