Two is hard, esp when I'm by myself. I really admire those of you that stay home with them. Kayla about drove me insane this last weekend and all I could think about was how in the hell you guys pull it off with a baby and a toddler.
I always thought Kayla was easy until I had Hayden. Hayden is so much easier (now that she's out of the newborn stage) and I really don't want to go back to fussing and midnight walks around the fireplace. Or a light sleeper. ugh. Hayden sleeps longer and harder than Kayla ever did.
I'm looking forward to doing things with them without having a baby to tend. I feel like I miss a lot as it is. I'm really going to miss the baby days, but I'm looking forward to trips to the zoo and things like that.
I so want three, but DH is totally against it. I mean, he won't even talk about it being an option. It frustrates me, but what can I do? I know that having three would be hard, but only for a short time. Mason wasn't an easy baby and Kaylee was a very easy baby, so I worry about which way a third would go? I also worry about everything under the moon when pregnant and with my kids ... I don't want to add a third worry on top of that, but I want three only because Kaylee and Mason would enjoy growing up with a third.
we might ttc a year from march. i would like to. sam will be 2 and walter will be 4 and i think they will be good friends and playing together independently. at that point (when sam would be closer to 3 and walter closer to 5) a baby doesn't seem as overwhelming. we'll see.
mama to 5 yr old DS1 , 3 year old DS2 , and nursling DD .
This is a big debate in our home. I would like to try for another around the time Katherine turns 2. DH doesn't, but he said if I really wanted to he would. I feel a lot of pressure considering I will be over 35 when the next one would be born. I worry about the financial piece of it, but figure in a year we will see where we are and decide from there.
