Baggy tunics are just the thing a girl wears when she goes to Casa Don Juan's and knows she's gunna put a hurtin' on a burrito and isn't expecting to button those jeans afterwards.
With everyone and their moms and grandma's getting pregnant recently, you would think that I would have the baby itch, but I don't. The itch comes in small spurts when i hold a new born but then it quickly passes. I haven't really thought about how many years apart I want my kids to be, or when we should start "trying" to get pregnant! Is that a bad thing? We're so happy with our ONE baby, it's hard to imagine what life would be like with two. We were talking the other night when we were cooking and I kept asking Dustin "Is it selfish of us to not want a baby right now??! Is it bad to not care if there are 3,4,5 years between our kids? I feel like we should care more, or should put a date on when we want to try!" Dustin reassured me that it's not selfish at all for us to want to enjoy our son and give him all of our attention. He will eventually have a sibling at some point (god willing) but we're really content with just one child right now. And if Conrad were a little older when we had an infant, He would be a big help to me!
It's a fine line though. You can't really put ten years between your kids. I don't want to not have another baby just because having ONE baby is easy for us and we've got this thing down now....
The pressures have gotten to be a little much from the in laws as well. My mother in law asked me if I needed her to babysit last night so Dustin and I could get crackin' on giving her more grand babies! "Maybe twins this time! They run in the family you know!" She says...
I just keep imagining taking 2 kids on trips,
and putting 2 kids to bed,
and saving for 2 college funds,
and on and on and on.
This whole building a family thing IS overwhelming.
