Getting Old...

Today is my 31st birthday!!! I remember many years ago, saying I wanted to be done having kids by 30. Then 30 came and went and I was pretty sure I wanted another baby! Now I am 31 and have the worst baby fever, I want another so bad. Maybe even 2 or 3 more. Hubby is on board with one more for sure. Now I am thinking....maybe I want to be done by 40! (Oh how I hope we can have atleast one more) Did you hope to be done by a certain age?

Haha! I said the same about being done by 30 and I'm 32 hoping for #5. I would seriously have more but not sure if hubbys down for that. I always just talk him into "just one more then we are done" and then repeat 😂😂

Happy birthday!

That is sorta how it is here. After we had our 5th though he told everyone we were done. I was heartbroken. However, his tone quickly changed and he started talking about another and after discussion agreed to a #6. It cracks me up though because he has seen or talked to folks with like 8 kiddos, and he will make comments like "Oh man, 8 they are crazy!" I have to remind him, we aren't that far from 8 LOL I keep hoping I will feel "done" but it hasn't happened yet. Maybe after a 6th? We shall see

I'm 31 also, trying for #4. I was totally done after the third boy and somehow dh talked me into it. After this we both "agree" that 4 is enough. He even said he would get snipped, but we shall see. I told him I would have to quit teaching if we have more because I can't work full time and raise all those babies, plus stay sane!

I wanted to be done by 30. I'll be 30 in June. This is month 9 of trying for our 3rd and last. I'm not optimistic.

I said the same thing! LOL
I'll be 32 in November, and we are still wanting just one more so who knows how old I'll be when we finally get pregnant.
Happy birthday Nora!
