The title pretty much sums it up.
Prior to meeting my DH, I would have laughed in your face of the thought of having another baby. Being a single mom to 4 vivacious mancubs was more than enough for me. One of the earliest conversations with my DH was that I was DONE having kids and he agreed wholeheartedly as he had a vasectomy previously and truly had no desire to have another child (he has a daughter from his previous marriage).
Now I am not sure what is happening to us... sometimes I think it's just the fact I am starting to get "old" for reproduction standards and my brain is getting wonky on me. My DH has started talking about what it would be like if we had a baby together. I can barely look at other babies without feeling my ovaries aching. Last week at the Y a woman asked my DH to hold her 6 month old baby as she put her things into the locker and I nearly cried seeing him hold that little one.
We are a super busy family with 4 of the 5 kids living with us full time. The kids are 16, 14, 14, 10 and 7. DH works full time and then some. I am a year away from my Nursing degree. I plan on continuing my education until I am a Certified Nurse Midwife. A baby would put those plans on hold for at least 3 years as I have told my DH I *REFUSE* to work more than a PRN schedule before the baby is 24 months. Which he's fine with.
Am I crazy? Is this something blended families experience?
Standing in the grocery store tonight he saw a toddler snack pack travel box and said, "The baby will need one of these... I mean, if we had one."
Someone talk some sense into us before his vasectomy reversal is scheduled!! LOL
