In Case You Were Wondering What That Sound Was

That would be the sound of my heart breaking.

Because I just signed up Little Man for T-ball.

And no child of mine should be old enough for that.

Also? Tiny Man started crawling on Saturday, which means that he'll want to start dating next week.

I want more babies. And yet, I know that because of financial reasons, we are done.

Money hurts my heart. And my ovaries.

That is all.

Love,

Catwoman.

Your heart will heal for a wee bit when tiny man hits terrible 2's and you wonder what the heck you were thinkin'... then snap again when you frantically snap pictures of little man entering kindergarten :)
Ahhhh the roller coaster ride of momhood :)

Ouch. But when they reach the age when they can reason with you and have great discussions about everything from sex to politics, you'll be loving it. I do know your pain, though. I still wonder if God is going to answer my prayer for one more - but I think he'll wait until I"m fifty just for a good laugh.

OH wow, eh? That's so sad... why do they grow up so fast? Watch out now that your Tiny Man is crawling! (But oh, so cute!) I will never make up my mind about having a third. My husband is pretty much a 100% NO, and I'm all "I don't know... maybe yes? No? Maybe? Yes? No?" about a hundred times a day!

Who needs money when you can have the privilege of another year of torture at the hand of a breast pump?

:(
I am feeling this so much lately. And I'm pregnant! But I know this will be my last, and it is heartbreaking. :(

T-ball?? Wow! He's going to love it though, and so will you.

As for the whole 'another baby' subject...I knew I didn't want another after my second. I think women who are unsure and want more should have them! I know they are expensive to raise, educated, etc but don't stop yourself from thinking about it and resolving those feelings (whether or not you end up having another).

If I can afford 4 on our crappy income then surely you can do 3! Of course, I suppose you have that crazy American health care to deal with. But houses are cheaper down there. (Did I ever tell you about my friend who moved to Texas and bought a house that would cost almost a million dollars here for less than what my crappy townhouse is worth?) I suppose it all balances out.

Anyway, I think if you want a third you should go for it, finances be damned. However, you probably shouldn't take any advice I give (except for that of my lice advice) as I am a walking disaster.

I know exactly how you feel.

We've gone back & forth over & over about having a third... and it's just not gonna happen.

Unless I, ah-hem, forget to take my pill one day...

But really?

We've got two healthy, beautiful kids. Why rock the boat?

J isn't getting any younger, and neither am I.

A third would mean less for my two. Less in the way of life experiences, travel, educational opportunites, all that crap that comes under the "financial" heading.

And with Michael turning three in a few weeks (THREE!!!!), I am more than used to my 9 hours of nightly uninterrupted sleep.

But then... Emma really does want a sister...

Isn't it awful? My youngest will be 4 weeks old tomorrow and I'm already picturing her going to high school. But (sigh) I am done. Mostly because I can't stand being so sleep deprived.
