Re: anyone else "reluctantly avoiding"?
I'm kind of reluctant. Not so much in the way you are but DH and I are at obvious forks in the road about another baby.
We love our monster to death but a) we can't afford another one right now with bills piling up and b) he got the little boy he wanted so now he doesn't want another.
Not really fair to me. He has all sisters, and I have 9 brothers and I'm the only girl. I want a little girl so so bad! Not right now, but I'm really starting to think about what it would be like to have another tiny smushy newborn in the house
So we at least agreed when DS is out of diapers then we'll revisit the idea of having another one. ugh. I hope he's an early trainer!
