Just tell him you need a mommy and a daddy to make a baby. Yell him there's no daddy for this baby yet but you`re looking.

DD has asked for a sibling to and I explain to her that Id love to have another baby some day but I have to be married or commited to someone first. Then she asks if I can buy her an 8 year old sister lol and I had to explain you can just buy kids you can adopt them though.

Tell him no, you're not having a baby anytime soon. I don't see why you need to explain why.

Said no...that you don't want a baby right now.

I mean my child who is 5 knows you don't need to be married so that never works. Plus I am pregnant and she knows there is a daddy to the baby but he isn't around.

 lol my son is the same way and he is 8. He is telling me I should go to an orphanage and bring home a child and that way I can make him and another child happy at the same time lol

It hurts me that he feels lonely but I'm not in a relationship at the moment and I too want to be either committed or married before I have another child.

My daughter is an only child.   I didn't have more children due to financial reasons.   My daughter asked a few times why she didn't have siblings like her other friends.  I told her that mommy and daddy couldn't have more kids.  She stopped asking when she turned 10.
