When you just have one child…

You can:

  • Spend quality time playing with them
  • Empty the dishwasher without getting smashed plates
  • Pack a suitcase without it being unpacked in 2 directions
  • Have a cup of tea before it gets cold
  • Use a normal trolley at the supermarket
  • Do a craft activity without a fight breaking out
  • Open a cupboard without being crushed by an avalanche of beakers
  • Have a spare room for guests

But when you have two:

  • They play together!

    Definetly the biggest advantage to having more than one, i love watching my kids play together. Still brings a tear to my eye

    Definitely a good reason for having another. Although I can't do most of the things on your list with just the one baby!

    I also find I'm more relaxed with what I let the second one do / get away with than I was with the first. But in other ways I expect her to do things earlier than her brother ever did too.
