Quiz Time: Should I have another kid?

Ah, the other big question. Your kids are finally out of the random screaming-through-the-night phase and you’re in a good place, sort of. Inevitably, you start missing the newborn baby smell and the way a baby feels just right in the nook of your elbow instead of the gangly limbs that are sticking out awkwardly with your toddler.

When that moment comes, it’s important to know if you’re truly ready to have another child or you’re better off stealing someone else baby for all of 3 minutes.

Add or subtract points for every statement that you can agree with below:

1. The smell of newborns make me feel warm and fuzzy. (Add 10 points)

2. I’m missing the glow of pregnancy. (Add 10 points)

3. I sometimes hold a sack of rice like a baby and sing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” to it. (Add 20 points)

4. I sometimes feed my kids cornflakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. On the same day. (Subtract 25 points)

5. I’ve got all this spare time sitting around taking afternoon naps and watching Gilmore Girls reruns. (Add 30 points)

6. One time, I forgot to bring back one of my children because I couldn’t remember how many I had. (Subtract 500 points)

7. I have enough kids to form a soccer team (Add 300 points – for having superpowers)

8. I can go for 2 weeks without bathing or sleeping. (Add 50 points)

9. I need more kids to help run this family business that I’m starting. (Subtract 100 points – wrong reason to have kids)

10. I need more kids to get $18,000 in baby bonus and CDA top ups. (Add 250 points – great reason to have kids)

11. I’m allergic to children. (Subtract 20 points)

12. Screaming babies make me want to tear off my own arm. And eat it. (Subtract 100 points)

13. I’m big on baby kisses and snuggles. (Add 50 points)

14. I enjoy being pooped, barfed and spat on. (Subtract 50 points – go speak to your therapist before you continue)

15. Ok, there are 2 lines on my pregnancy test kit. (Burn all the points and go celebrate. Congratulations, you’re as ready as you’ll ever be.)

    I thought it was one of those usual pop quizzes but turned out to be a really hilarious article after Point 6. Funny funny funny!

    Ok you guys clearly think I’m hard at work making baby #3. Much as I’d like to have 2 more (at least), I’m currently not yet pregnant and hopefully it stays that way for another year or so because my score as it stands is -565. And if I do get pregnant, I’ll make a nice banner and put it up on the site. =)

      Yah..same here…i’m about -120 (though i hate to admit it)…two toddlers at hand is really uppppp to my forehead liao….>.<

    Hi … you should go for Point 15…

    • Reply Daphne June 27, 2011 at 12:19 am

      Haha yes I will, at some point in the distant future.

  • Reply Ellen June 25, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    But you’ve promised to singlehandly raise the world population… replacing you and your husband doesn’t count…

    • Reply Daphne June 27, 2011 at 12:21 am

      At least we’re breaking even, but there is a master plan. If all goes well, I should be wrapping up my baby making by the time I’m 35.

  • Reply Susan June 25, 2011 at 11:58 pm

    Haha yes it’s hard not to guess that you were hinting something with No15 there. Go for it!!!

    • Reply Daphne June 27, 2011 at 12:22 am

      Haha got a lot of pressure now man. *sweat*

  • Reply San June 26, 2011 at 1:11 am

    Oh, you tease, you… I had a skip in my heartbeat there at your point #15.

    Well… I did a post about #2 (before #2 even came about)… so this is here a good sign. Heee! :)

    • Reply Daphne June 27, 2011 at 12:22 am

      Oh no… WHAT HAVE I DONE?????

  • Reply Merryn June 26, 2011 at 9:42 am

    lol.. so if my hubs ask how come I’m pregnant, I’ll forward him to this page! haha..

    • Reply Daphne June 27, 2011 at 12:24 am

      You totally should. Make him bookmark and read multiple times. And then also make him take you out for a nice dinner and massage your feet. Pregnancy has its perks.
