About Me

I'm a mid twenties girl. Who has the cutest two boys ever. I'm married to the best hubby ever (aka the Man). I'm also a teacher of sixth grade with a masters degree in Education. I'd rather be busy than bored. I love things bright and beautiful and my family means the world to me.

Baby on the brain

Since I don't share my blog with family or friends I feel comfortable in talking of our future plans. Our parents know that we're going to be trying for our second child later this year. The Man and I have actually set our date to "start trying" or more liking stop preventing for June. It sounds selfish but I'd love to deliver our second in March or so, so that I wouldn't have to worry about missing school and then going back. Instead- not finishing the school year and have that time with the new baby and the whole summer without worry of daycare.

It was way back last winter when we set our date of June for this year. At the time it seemed like it would take forever to get here, but now it's three months away. I find myself thinking about things more and more. To the point of waking myself up randomly at night knowing that I dreamt of something baby related. I'm super excited and I think the Man is somewhat as well. But I feel like it's been forever since Tucker was a baby.  There are so many different things out there now, my goodness it's been SIX years! Apparently that's ages in the baby merchandising world.

I've saved so much from Tucker. We still have his clothes, crib, changing table, toys, bedding, monitor, clothes, diaper bag, rocking chair, swing, clothes (tubs and tubs worth) and bottles. I won't lie that I'd be super excited to have one supreme little boy clothing sale to be replaced by pink, pink, pink! But there's still so much I think about
  • How will Tucker adjust to a sibling?
  • How will we adjust?
  • Will the basement be done in time?
  • Diapers, wipes, baby food, what will this do to our budget?
  • Boy or girl?
  • One or more?
  • Names?
  • Green eyes or blue?
  • My cheeks or the Man's?
  • Will I gain a ton of weight?
  • How will a second child affect our marriage?
  • The best kind of stroller, we gave ours away to a family in need.
  • When?
  • How long will it take to conceive?
  • What if we have troubles conceiving?
Clearly I'm an over thinker, I over analyze and worry about everything. Part of it is just excitement and impatience. I know as a family we'll be fine but I more wonder how our dynamics will change. Tucker is hoping that we have two babies so that we can have a boy and a girl. When he told our friends this I thought the Man was going to lose his lunch :)

So am I crazy? Are all mom's like this before their second? Maybe I'll Google that question night.
