Believe me this is not an easy decision. First of all because the economy is not on our side and second because after so many years we will have to get used to everything that a baby implies. With this I mean not getting any sleep during the first few weeks of their lives, having to carry a car seat and stroller everywhere you go, and having to carry a diaper bag and milk everywhere you go is not easy. But this is somehow gratefully rewarded by the baby itself, because a baby always brings love and joy to any couple and family. This is why even though we know that it will be a rocky ride, we are ready to take this step and have a second baby.
I'm going to take this experience and embrace it, because this time around there will be a huge difference that will make my experience a much better one, and its the fact that I no longer work. That means that I will be able to have a calm and peaceful pregnancy and for the first time in my life I will be able to share all of the great moments a mother would want to share with their baby, instead of being at work and receiving a call saying that your baby said their first word or gave its first step. Or even worse, not being able to breastfeed because you don't have time for that. This time around I am looking forward to having all of these experiences and enjoying motherhood to the fullest because this is probably going to be my last chance to do so.
I will be keeping you posted on the preparation and outcome of this whole experience and I look forward to giving hope to all of the working moms out there that are not able to experience and enjoy motherhood so that they can realize that it's not impossible and that maybe someday they can also be able to quit work and enjoy their family being a stay at home mom.
