Alas, I believe I am getting the baby blues.

I feel I am ready for another child but my hubby disagrees. We've had a few "slip-ups" but nothing has happened. He wants to be financially ready (which I believe one never really is), so we have to wait. I used to say I wanted to wait until my son was a year old but now I am re-thinking this. Is it just a "baby blues phase?" Have other mothers felt this? If so, did it stay or go away?

    I agree in that I'm not sure anyone is truly financially ready. I think it's common to feel. Hope you get to have another one soon and hubby will come around.

    Thank you. I believe no one ever is "financially" ready for another, unless you make over 100,000 a year. Lol There will always be some occurrence that comes along and will place someone in financial debt.

      We have discussed it. At first he didn't want anymore and then we were surprised with my son. After a few months, he said he would like to have more. I think he truly enjoys being a father as I do a mother. Although, I can handle the fusses, tantrums, attitudes, and children a lot easier than he can. I am not sure when he wants another. When all the medical bills are finally paid off? We always make it to the next paycheck with at least a hundred or so left in the bank and he still worries. Even when I was working and we were doing even better, he still worried. He constantly worries about finances, even when I found ways to save money--he worries. I believe his worrying gets in the way of it all.

        For the longest time once I was over healing after having a baby I looked forward to having the next one...until my last one and then I was pretty much done and my husband was at the same place. However, I think I was always ready sooner than he was. And only with our first five did we feel we were on financially stable ground because my husband's job was stable and he made decent money.

          Well, hopefully I will be successful with selling Avon and then we can discuss having another...and another...and another. Lol I would enjoy an entire house full, really. Some people think I am insane for wanting five kids or more.

          I believe we can handle another, financially, but he would worry about money even if he made 100,000 or more a year. He would be a millionaire and he would worry. He is just a worrier.
