Baby Fever... or Not...

A really good friend of mine came to visit a few days ago. We've known each other for many years, but this is the first time we've seen each other since about this time last year. We both have kids and a busy schedule, and we live 45 minutes apart so the timing to see each other is always a little difficult.

She is a stay at home mommy to 4 gorgeous kids: Lorelai (7), Piper (4), Derek (2) and Nala (3 months). I always love spending time with her because we parent similarly. Yes, I said it... I like the way she parents, and yes there are certain people I don't hang out with because I don't like the way they parent.

The problem with seeing her recently is baby Nala. Not that she's a bad baby or anything like that... No, she made me way too broody! It really didn't help that Ainsley didn't want the baby to leave. No joke, my 17 month old baby girl took claim to Nala and was only happy when she was sitting on the couch holding her.

Cuteness overload, right?

I have to remind myself that a third baby is NOT in the budget right now. And we definitely don't have the room in the house. I'm definitely not moving anytime soon to a bigger house.
Thank goodness for Mirena IUD. Even if I wanted a third baby right now, I'm not getting my IUD taken out anytime soon to start trying. *wipes brow in relief*

As cute as Ainsley was with Nala, I have a feeling she'd be a mean big sister. She's a bit of a bully at times. She takes toys from Zander, and he's three years older than she is.
No, two kids is definitely enough for now.
Thanks, blogger for allowing me to talk myself out of this. And thanks to my readers for sticking around.


  1. I simply can not watch baby movies right now. And I speed past any baby posts on Facebook. I am not ready for a child. I am not ready for a child. I AM NOT READY FOR A CHILD. *panting* Praise the sweet baby Jesus for IUDs.

  2. Babies are cute. I want one at least. My him already has one. But I may want two but I will have that one before I'm 40 so before nine years is up I will have a kid. All has to go well n all with me n my sweeties situation. We aren't financially ready
