Hubby being in law school maybe one of the reasons that I can (hopefully!) have 5 children. But, it's also the reason why we are trying to wait at least two more years before we start our own little family. Edward just finished his first year and has two more to go. And with me being the sole provider, it would not be ideal to take maternity leave. Not to mention law school already keeps Edward so occupied. I have to look at all the "pros"of waiting to stay positive: more time alone with hubby, build a nest egg, date nights, lots of traveling, etc. We have only been married a year and we are really enjoying our time as newlyweds. But when Edward says things like, "You are going to be a such a cute mom," or "
I believe that motherhood is a privilege and such a blessing. My call to motherhood is so strong and always has been. I can't get enough of children. Thankfully, many of my nieces and nephews live near us :) One of my sister-in-laws is expecting and feeling that little peanut kick my hand when I place it on her stomach sends chills up my spine, such a miracle!! I love playing with them, soothing them when they cry, feeding them, teaching them... but nothing melts my heart more than a sweet, little baby sleeping on my chest. Of course there is also the nursery decorating, precious clothes, cute toys and so much more for mommies to splurge in. And let's admit this... the baby items are for the comfort of the baby but the joy of the mom!
With all of this being said, even though Edward and I talk constantly about having children, we need to focus on finishing law school first. But the day I find out I am pregnant will be the happiest day of my life - whether it is in two years or God has other plans and it's sooner. For now, I will continue to enjoy being a newly married wife to Edward and a mom to our sweet little Dexter (aka, Diva Dog)!
