Re: Opinions needed please!!!
A year paid of maternity leave is very appealing so I understand your argument but I say finish school as having two is three times the work - not just double, so how motivated will you be to go back to school after #2 - and that just increases expenses. Don't worry about the age gap - my husband has a 19 year age gap between his youngest and our child... hee hee... his son is entertained by it. There are great reasons to wait...there are great reasons to do it now. But, I'd say wait and finish school as if you have back to back kids - like my husband did with the first set, its sooo much harder if you are working/parenting/school than with just one.
