so my husband and I have 1 child right ( 11 months.) I think now would be the perfect time to give him a brother or sister, my husband agrees. However this is where it gets complicated. My husband is currently still pursuing his graduate schooling, and my parents being fairly wealthy have allowed us both not to work by agreeing to support us until he is finished with his schooling. This year my husband will be working and going to school, so the new baby and our rent and all other housing expenses will be paid for by us. However the extra money they offered will still be needed for my 1st son. I'm worried that if we decide to have another baby they will be offended and not willing to continue giving us the money. YET i think its SO important for my little one to have a sibling, that he can grow up with, rather then 3 years from now...
I can't decide whether this is just selfish, or whether my parents should understand and support my decision??? any advice?!

Why not wait to you guys are able to support the family you already created? That is nice that your parents are willing to help you but you need to step up to the plate and get your life in order before having another child. Your son can have a brother or sister at any time but its best when the $$$ is coming in and your not strapped or leaning on someone else to pay the bills. Just my opinion.
