Re: How to convince dh to have another???

I figure I've got 2 years to get him on the same page as me. I've talked to him about it but his response is always the same, "We have 3 healthy kids. 3 is enough. Do you know how much they're going to cost as teenagers and college students? 3 is enough". Ugh. How do you respond to THAT kind of frontal lobe logic??!! I'm thinking with my heart here! I see an empty seat at the table that I feel is meant to have another child there and an empty bedroom that I feel another child belongs in. There's just this longing for my dream of 4. When he says stuff like that, it makes me feel that I'm completely unreasonable about wanting another. And then he'll ask me, "How do you know that if we have 4 you won't feel this way and want 5?" Ugh. Man logic.
