Kendra Wilkinson is Not Ready for a Second Baby
While she may be enjoying life with her three-year old son Hank IV, Kendra Wilkinson is not ready to add to her family just yet. The former Playboy and wife to Hank Baskett loves the freedom she has now. She tells PEOPLE why she has not signed up yet for a second baby, “I’m not ready for that yet. I love having one kid right now — and I give him everything I’ve got — but if I have two, I know my little club days and going out once a week will be pretty much gone. I’m not ready for that kind of sacrifice yet.”
Wilkinson, who is 27, is enjoying raising her first baby right now, the little boy who she calls “a great kid” also has his moments where she has to employ some creative parenting. She says, He’s in this stage right now where he’ll get into this mean, mean, mean little spurt.”
So how does she handle it? “We tell him if he wants to yell, then he’s an adult now. We’re taking all his toys and he has to cook his own food and bathe himself. We don’t punish him in any other way. He listens to that. He’s like, ‘I’m a kid again!’”
I can see where Wilkinson is coming from, as a parent to three kids, all who were born within three years; I am just now enjoying some “me” time. If I had waited until my oldest was more independent to have a second child, I think I would have been reluctant to add more. I am loving being diaper free and having children who are able to be without me for a few hours. Perhaps it was a good thing that my children came in such quick succession; I might have ended up with only one!
What are your thoughts on timing when adding to your family? All together or nicely spaced?
