Babies babies babies

Exhubby and the new wife had twins yesterday. My niece had a baby last week and my sister in law is overdue and ready to pop any minute.

Here I am with 1 kid about to graduate and constantly fighting with the other about his lack of motivation for anything, his language and of course his grades.

10 years ago I wanted more children only to be told that I had uterine cancer and couldn't.

I am kinda bitter about the fact that my ex who NEVER wanted more children just had two more with a women who already has 3, when he hardly pays any attention to the two he has now.

However, when I think about starting over vs. a nearly empty nest and freedom, which I haven't had since I was 18. I think... wow would I want to start with diapers, colic, teething and potty training again. Do I want another 18 years of fighting about grades when I am almost finished with that?

The answer came quicker than I thought.


I look forward to grandchildren, travel and maybe, just maybe a bit of time in a career that I love with the flexibility to try living a bi-coastal lifestyle at the ripe old age of 40... which is only 4 and 1/2 years away.


  1. I second that HELL NO! Haha, way to have a better look on the situation.

  2. I will totally agree with the HELL NO! I had my kids young for a reason and am so glad that I did. I have friends my age (45) or a few years younger still having babies. I personally think they are nuts! I'll get a baby fix from them whenever I need one until I get some grandkids to love on.
