Were renting now and about to move into a 3 bedroom 1.5 bath so not too bad. We will probably wait another 2-3 years to buy.

sometimes I wish we just rented because then when something is broken we dont have to pay to fix it but its nice not having house payments or rent so I guess it evens out But I love my house and its just about how I wanted it but the bedrooms aren't big enough and we could only add onto it upwards which is too much work/money

Quoting Tara plus 2.5:):" Yeah i just found out yesterday. After being a day late. Total shock!!! So just wondering about you mamas ... [snip!] ... you mamas with kids so close in age and how to handle all of it? My sons 3 feb 17th. My daughter will be 9 months the 17th."


i had my 1st son and was very apprehensive when found out i was expecting again, the age gap between the 2 was 10 months when my little girl arrived, but i coped. just think, one extra bottle, one extra nappy etc, and the younger one will be very adavanced, because they will learn from the older sibling. in actuall fact its very good to have this gap, and youl adapt very easy, as its all still fresh so youl be a pro.xx good luck. im expecting my 4th in a week, and i enjoy each and everyone.xx

My daughters are 29 months and 9 months old and I'm due in like 7 weeks with my son, it can get really crazy at times for me and I know it's about to get crazier lol I cope some how with no sleep and completely stressed out. I tell myself everyday these are my beautiful babies, and if I need a quick break I step outside for 5 mins to collect myself,

Mine will be 2 years apart exactly. We started trying that soon because we thought it would take a while but nope, it happened the very first month. So I'm kinda in the same boat as you. Just trying not to think about it too much and taking one day at a time. Terrible twos started early for us so I'm learning on how to get a handle on it already. Will be thinking of you!
