Mind Versus Heart
When my mind speaks it says:
you have two healthy children
a boy and a girl
they get along well most of the time
they each have their own room
they both go to school
there are no diapers to be changed
no bottles to be cleaned
hardly any broken nights
When my heart speaks it says:
why not one more?
It is weird how sometimes the heart can cloud the mind.

So ... What do you think? Are two kids enough? Do you often have the urge to have more children? What are the advantages/disadvantages to having two children verses having more and vise versa?
