(I actually wrote this post quite a few weeks ago- before I had any inkling that this little surprise would be coming along so soon. Just for fun, I decided to still post it)
We’re on board! In theory!
In fact I recently went of birth control pills for one day thinking “This is it! Lets do it!” (figuratively, Dad!)
And the next day, I went ahead and took two to make up for it, and have been taking them regularly ever since.
So, feel free to talk to Joseph and Isaac and tell them that if they want a younger sibling soon they need to:
a) Start sleeping through the night regularly (If someone had told me when I had Joseph that I would still be hardly ever sleeping through the night 4 years later…sob! sob! sob!)
b) Stop constantly dumping things/spraying things/pawing through the trash can and bringing me bits of trash! (I-SAAC!)
c) Play by themselves occasionally. That is why I gave Joseph a sibling to begin with!
But, seeing as how these things will probably not happen before my ovaries turn to dust, we are probably going to just have to jump in and hope for the best.
My only comfort (pun not intended!) is that I will get to spend the better part of a year wearing elastic waistbands again!
And that I might have another infant to snuggle that has sideburns like this
So, I would say in the next 6 months (ish).
