And baby makes 6?

Since I got pregnant very young and started my family so early I have been way ahead of my friends. While they were all partying it up, going on long vacations I was nursing or changing diapers or scrambling for a sitter. Don't get me wrong I love/loved every minute of it. But it was hard. Now that I my youngest is 5 all of my friends are pregnant!

Which means of course that my clock starts ticking. And baby fever starts to take over. But here is the thing, while of course I would love another little baby, do I really want another baby? Can I really support another baby? When you really start outlining the reasons not to have a baby it can be really daunting. And you actually start to ask how anyone affords a baby. But another soft cuddly baby? Ohhh my heart melts!

I in the midst of this same decision, right now. My children are turning two and three, and things have gotten so much easier-but I am craving that newborn cuddle. I love my children so much. I want more, but I don't want to be fat. I worry about paying for college. I just got offered an amazing job. I don't know. Like I said, in the middle of it.

We are also sort of talking about if we want to expand our family. It's the first time it's come up because of the difficulties we had in the past, and the last time we'll talk about it because of my age. Most times I think I am happy with just the three of us, but then Aidan asks for a baby brother or sister and it makes me realize that one more might be nice. What a difficult decision!
