So...I'm 43 and pregnant with #3 - how'd that happen?
It is fully possible, but it is tricky at times. We live in an apartment that is around 7-800sq feet, two adults, an almost four year old and a one year old. I'm starting to feel pretty cramped now, but having a full sized second bedroom instead of a box room would make a big difference. I can't honestly say I wouldn't want more room, but it does work for now while the kids are small.

so we don't have private outdoor space even! We have great playgrounds, parks, and museums though. Looking around last night, I tried to figure out what exactly people who said we needed more space for kids thought was missing; I do OAMC, regular playdates with 4-5 kids, dinner parties for up to 8 adults, WAH, overnight guests about 1/month... we can't host parties of 12 kids and their parents, thats about it.
We have space for a sewing machine, TV/Tivo/playstation; we could practically have a preschool in here-puzzles, dress up, toy kitchen, playmobil, musical instruments, board games, fish tank, art area, baby toys, play mat, computer with kid games, books books books; storage for christmas ornaments, bicycle with baby seat, tricycle, stroller... we do keep camping gear in a storage locker, along with baby clothes/toys for the next child. but the locker is 10x10x5, not huge, and it also houses inventory from my toy business.
Either dh and I stumbled upon an apartment with Harry Potter type enlargement charms on it (which it sometimes feels like), or we just don't need the Precious Moments/baseball cards/50 million tupperware and small appliance/plastic toys that do one thing each/enough dishes to serve 100/enough clothes to go a month without washing/etc that were once upon a time eating up our living space. I giggle when I watch house hunters and people complain that the walk in closet is only big enough for the woman's stuff, or even worse, for her shoes! Dude. I own 5 pairs of shoes. Total including winter boots. I have staple, basic clothes, and I get new "hip" stuff periodically, but I don't keep the last 20 season's worth of hip stuff too.
You can do it!!!
