So Darn Glad

Greetings from Utah!!!

My little Logan is now 14 months old. In the past, when I thought about this time of the year, I thought I would be ready for the next little being. That has completely changed! As more and more of my friends are embarking on their next child, I am embarking on my own little journey of trying to keep up with my toddler and enjoying my life as it is. I know I want more, but really, I just started to sleep again. I didn't realize how much I LOVE sleep and how much it LOVES me. To think of starting all over again, just does not sound that much fun to me. I loved having a baby, but I love not having someone completely dependent on me.

So when does that "I want to have another one" hit? Honestly, as time is moving forward that thought is diminishing. I know I want a total of 3 or 4, but the thought of enduring through those first few months makes me shake my head. Even now, I am sitting here with my son and my 5 month old nephew and I keep repeating to myself that I couldn't do this. I guess I am one of those women who cannot have children close together but rather space them out a bit. And that is okay!!! I am me and not someone else. I know how I function and what I need to raise my children.

That really is ok!! My daughter is 2, and we are going to start trying later this year. I think it's great to space them out. I have a lot of friends that have had kids close together, and that's just not for me either. Another friend had a son that was 3 when she had her next, and he was so helpful to her... that's what I'm looking forward to...

We're going through the same thoughts here in the Rittman home.

It goes back and forth.

I'm a nanny, so I can totally sympathize that having a toddler is a WORK OUT!

You picked the thoughts right out of my brain. :) Besides, we have to do everything 2-3 weeks apart right?!

My two girls are 28 months apart which I think worked out just great. My younger sister and I are 18 months apart and it worked out fine, too! We're like twins - really close.

Thank you so much for stopping by and supporting me on my big day the other day (wednesday) - it really meant a lot to me..

I will be back - your blog is really lovely:)

Good luck!
