Honestly how hard is it going from one child to two??? The age gap would be 5 years for us. 

If it makes any difference, I will be putting off college again until this child is old enough to start school and remain a SAHM still until then. I am currently 26. 


Thank you.

Your going to go back at 30? More than likely...you won't go back at all.

The age gap is a huge help. My son is now 9, my daughter 4. They were in completely different stages, so I didn't have to deal with having two in diapers, etc. And my son matured as he stepped into the older brother role. And other than the normal sibling bickering, they get along really well, which is so heartwarming-I think it's because there never was any need for competition because of the age gap.

I mean, of course it's an adjustment, but once you get into the flow, it's not difficult at all. Just more excitement, more love.

My kids are 5 years apart. It wasn't hard at all. My dd was old enough to be helpful with ds and understand when she needed to be quiet and things like that

 I found it so much harder going from none to one and so much easier going from one to two.

My mom webby back when she was 40, so it's possible she will go back.

What do you know? I held off after my son was born, and went back recently, and will get my diploma in May.

Never say Never.

I agree, I want to have my children while im younger so that I can worry about career and college when im older.
