So I have always wanted 4 children. DH had been on board with at least 3 and was okay with the idea of 4. We were talking about when to TTC #3 last week and he just started bringing up all sorts of concerns/questions etc. I was thinking of TTC in July, but he wants to wait until Sept/Oct because his work is renewing their contract with the US Navy in late August so wants to make sure he still has a job. I'm totally okay with that, it makes sense. What I'm more concerned about is having #3 period. He's just less on board than I thought he was. Very concerned with money (I will have to quit my job and become a SAHM), conerned with taking care of the two we have (who are fairly needy with attention and both very energetic), and I think he's also wanting to move on to the "raising kids" instead of baby stage (wants to go to Disney, teach the kids how to ski etc.).
I guess life really is "easier" with a family of 4. And some days I really can't imagine taking care of another kiddo. But then they give each other hugs and just start laughing so hard and I can't imagine not having another child! How do you know what's right for your family???? I guess I'm thoroughly confused! LOL
