can i join the thread?
my reasons to close up shop?
still BF DS2
still working out nightweaning after DS2 hit the up-every-hour mark and I threw in the towel, i am still sleeping in the other room alone while DH and the 2 boys are in the main bedroom (i actually like my night vacations though!)
still (or again?) working through postpartum depression
want to get back to midwifery/attending births
DH wants to either go back school or get a job he loves (which would pay little, and i still want to be a SAHM)
want to homeschool (at least part time?!?!) and already feel overwhelmed by this decision
sometimes yell so much that I think I must be NUTS to want to add another to the mix
phew. thanks for letting me get that out!
reasons I don't want to close up shop?
i just feel somewhere deep down inside that I am not done. that i am meant to do it again: the + pregnancy test, the pregnancy, the labor/birth, newborn smell, breastfeeding a newborn, etc, etc...
oh and i'm with kcparker-- waiting until DS1 was two years old to get pregnant was really good for us. they really are such babies until they're three, IMO, they need so much of us, so much of the time.
