Is anyone else going through this?

My husband wants to finish college before we have another child. I know that we should but I want another baby. It is going to be 4-5 years before he graduates becuase he won't take a full load of classes. I don't even know how to describe how frusterated and angry I am.

  • I know it's hard but it's best to wait my brother in law tells my sister I want to be the best dad and the best student and I can't do both. But if I'm a best student first it will help me be the best dad cause I can provide better

  • I would say its EASIER to wait.. best or not.. i dont really agree w/ that..its whatever you want to take on.. you can be the best parent and be the best student..just with more effort..i know many great moms and dads who are students and they will tell you its harder, but its their life, and obviously they wouldnt trade their kids for anything! you can be the best anything if you give it all ya got! & I wouldnt be too mad right now... maybe he will change his mind once he gets the hang of school, maybe a year or so under his belt. Just gotta figure out whats best for all of you! good luck!
