I'm Cassie and I posted on the WTT and WTTG boards a lot while waiting and while TTC. Coming back to this board feels like getting re-aquainted with old friends!
My son just turned 18-months, and it feels like a bigger landmark than his first bithday. He's been walking for three months or so, communicating so much more in the last month or so (a few words and signs that make a big difference), and we recently found that he can go down just fine for the night without a before-bed nurse (although he still comfort nurses several times through the night).
I took a full year maternity leave (the standard in Canada) and decided to return to work part-time only. This has allowed me to continue many of the Mommy-and-Me type activities that I love, although I have to admit I'm more worn out than ever at the end of the work week or caring for my crazy monkey/busy toddler and juggling work responsibilities. (I have no idea how women work full time and care for one or more children!)
Now DH and I are contemplating when to TTC#2, or whether to possibly stay with just one child. We both love being parents, but the amount of effort required to nurture and care for a child everyday can be overwhelming at times! Most likely we will TTC another child, aiming to have them about 3 years apart.
For those who don't know me at all, I'm 33m DH is 36, I live in Ontario, Canada, and work in communications for a non-profit organization.
I look forward to catching up everyone!
