I was a regular on pg.org here when I was expecting my 4th baby. I was on the september and october 2009 birth boards. I am back here because I *could be* pregnant this cycle. DH and I were TTA, we just kinda thought that 4 boys was enough! But...we had a couple OOOPSes this cycle, and I am now in the TWW....just remembered the support and love I felt here and I am wondering if anyone of my old buddies are still around?
I remember you! I remember your beautiful little girls' picture.
I visited the boards and found that, yes, they are very quiet . I did look back through some of the posts to see if anyone was still around, and noticed some have new babies or new pregnancies. Pretty exciting!
Hmmm....well....I am split. I think I will be happy either way. We have always wanted a little girl, but I have felt so overwhelmed at times with 4 boys that I am not sure we can handle another baby, LOL. But, I think I have changed my mind about us being "done" with the boys. I think that if we don't get our "surprise" this time, I will wait a few months and possibly actually start trying. DH is in school now, and will graduate this coming fall, so timing would be better in about 6 months or so. With DH in school, finances have been extremely tight...so now is not the best timing. Then again, I am a firm believer that the Lord has more control of things than I do, and He won't give us something that we can't handle.
It is so good to catch up with you! How are your little girls?
Patience, nice to "see" you again!
Alyssa, homeschooling would be soooo hard! I admire moms who can do it! I was a music teacher in the public schools for about 5 years before my 3rd son was born and it was tough. But I can't imagine teaching at home! My kiddos have no interest in what I try to teach them. LOL!
I really do enjoy homeschooling. I have a separate classroom with chalkboards, bulletin board, desks and chairs. It looks just like a real classroom. I have curriculum and lesson plans. It is really no different that a traditional school other than they are my children and I only have a few students instead of many, and I get to choose what curriculum I feel is the best fit for our family.
Alyssa, that sounds amazing! I bet your daughters love it too.
