When You Want To Have Another Baby, And She Doesn't

May 16, 2015

The defining moment when you already have two kids, and you’re ready for more… but she isn't. What do you do? Well, you could try one of the following:

First, try to convince her that more babies is a good idea. Who cares if you have more than one pooping machine at once? You could try telling her something like “if we have more now, it just means less diapers to change later”, or “we already aren't getting sleep. Let's just have another one now, and sleep better later”. If those don’t work, try saying “but honey, we almost have enough for our baseball team, we need to keep going if we want to win at the next family reunion”. Something along those lines is sure to win this battle.

If your first option doesn't work, pretend like you don’t want kids again, ever. A good statement to make here is “well honey, I guess we don’t have to have any more kids”, or “do you know the number for a doctor that does vasectomies?”.  I mean, reverse psychology works right? Just make sure you duck when she throws the vase at you.

If the reverse psychology trick doesn't work, go with your third option, being the alpha. You’re the head of the house, play that card. It’s sure to work when you say “honey, the bible says the man is the head of the house, and what I say goes!” or “I think it’s time we talk about who’s in charge here”.

If you've exhausted your options, don’t accept defeat just yet. End the day with a healthy dose of spouting names at each other, arguing, and then sleeping alone on the couch.

As you can see, there really isn't a win here. Just accept defeat, she’s the one who carries the baby, so she’s the one who makes the decisions. Take your alpha card elsewhere.
