Need some tips/input ladies!

Jan 02, 2014 - 12 comments

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?

Getting tonsils removed

Nov 20, 2013 - 18 comments

I have been told since a young age they should come out, they're huge, I get constant sore throats, I snore awful, it's pretty clear they need to come out, just finally thinking about doing it. Anyone have theirs removed? I've had two c-sections, but I'm terrified of having them removed, lol!!

Separation.

Oct 02, 2013 - 27 comments

I think DH and I are going to try a few weeks separation. We are constantly bickering, constantly. It seems like neither one of us can talk to each other without being miserable, or having a terrible attitude. It's starting to effect me emotionally, as a mother, everything. I am becoming depressed.. kind of hopeless.. like doomed to be miserable forever. We can't go one day without fighting. It's draining, and exhausting. I am going to go stay with my mother for a few weeks and focus on me, and my kids. I need to think and figure out what's best to do. My main concern, is of course the kids. I need input on how to make sure this transition is as smooth as possible for them, anything would be greatly appreciated.

So horribly embarrassed..

Sep 24, 2013 - 15 comments

So insanely embarrassed today. It is unreal. I was dropping DS (4) off at school today. We were sitting in the lobby with the other parents and kids waiting for class to start to send the kids down to Pre-K. We are sitting there and Dameon says "Hey Mom.. I got a gun in my backpack." I said WHAT? That is NOT funny, that is very serious.. and guns are dangerous. And he says "Hey Mom, can you hold my gun?" I said Dameon, NOT funny. If you say it again we're leaving this room and sitting in the car til class starts. This whole time, he never has a toy gun or anything, just pretending. Then he says "boom" pretending to shoot a gun. By now I'm just so embarrassed I'm ready to take him outside and home. I don't know where he's getting this, another kid in his class, i dont know. We don't play video games, we don't own ANY guns, my husband doesn't shoot, doesn't hunt, NOTHING!! We don't let him watch stupid TV shows.. I don't know what to do. I don't want the other parents thinking we're a crazy reckless family. Any input? :( I've talked to him many times about the dangers of guns, etc. All he has for toy guns are water guns, and those are gone as of now too..Input please!! :(
