But there are definite downsides as well. Loneliness, boredom and YOU never get a break. At least with multiple kids they can be off beating each other up while you get to pee in peace. I mean, sure there will be more diapers, food costs, and possible episiotomies, but hey, babies are cute as hell. And in this helicopter parenting world, it’s not about what YOU want, but about how much more spoiled your kids are than the next family. Isn’t that what’s really important? Here are 10 signs that your child needs a brother or sister ASAP.

8. Their imaginary friend is creeping you out

7. You catch your kid putting Spanish fly in your morning coffee

6. You suspect your child is poking holes in your condoms

…and when you answer they say “Well, then GET TO IT, WOMAN!”

3. They go on a “sibling hunger strike”
