Hello ladies! I am back... I went over to WTT grads board, got out my IUD, and my DH changed his mind :( My name is Meagan i'm a SAHM to DS Nathan 5 and DD Mackenzie 2.
It was a big bummer but I understand his feelings. We have his younger brothers living with us since their mom passed away. At first it was one 16 yo brother.... then the 21 yr old moved in and the 10 yr old has been here for the summer. Things have been expensive, stressful, and i'm now just irritated that we can raise all his brothers but not have another one of our own. He wants one too just not right now. "When we can afford it" which is frustrating for me. I want 3-4 kids no matter what.. I don't want to wait for him to start making more money. Especially because "enough" to him is way different than "enough" to me.
Our kids have everything, a big house, 2 playrooms, so many toys I had trouble finding a good present for DD's birthday that she didn't already have! Great family friendly neighborhood, elementary school in walking distance... everything we need and more. That is ENOUGH to me. We cut it a little close on bills and don't get a whole lot of extras ourselves but I don't really mind. We have a substantial amount of money in savings too.
