So my baby boy is going to be 5 this year, my baby girl will be 1 year in 12 days, and I'm just wondering whereeee has time gone?!! I get so sad seeing how quickly it goes. I'm also sad knowing this is it for me - I know my limit, and I still feel stress some days being home alone with 2 kids to occupy day in and out. I absolutely love my babies, and love pregnancy, birth, baby stage, but that is NOT a good reason to want another child. Simply because I miss pregnancy, birth, and having a baby around - because pregnancy and birth come and go, and they don't stay babies forever. I also know in order to provide the absolute best for them financially, we are sticking to two. Our house is also 3 bedroom, and the kids rooms are not huge, so I would feel awful making them share a room and invade their space like that. I have two beautiful, healthy, amazing kids. And I am extremely grateful for that. So my question, ladies, is how do I get myself over the grief I feel for not having anymore kids? I'm 22 - no permanent surgeries for DH or I as far as getting "fixed", and don't plan to until we are well over 30, but we're pretty set in not wanting any more. I know time can change things drastically, but I feel we are done with kids. I just feel such sadness in my kids getting older. Maybe when Chloe goes to school and I get to finish college and get in to shape physically that I want, and focus on me more often I will feel differently. I know I desperately need "me" time - and I intend on getting that now. Has anyone else felt this way when finishing up their families? Any tips to get over it?
