Hi all. Hope you are all well! Last I checked in, I said we'd give it a couple months to see what happens...I was very excited at the possibility that a third might happen...and so far, let's just say, we're moving in the opposite direction. I guess it's better that the complexities get worked out while NOT expecting a third...
Dh and I suddenly started really not getting along. He's been home for 3 weeks due to a medical issue (he's fine) and the tone of the household is toxic. He's been home from deployment for about 6 months and I think he thinks things are fine...I, on the other hand, do not. At this point, a 3rd child is the farthest thing from my mind, except for the mourning that goes with wishing I could bring another child into an "ideal" family instead of what it is...and "making" another child...well...that ain't happenin' :?
Sigh...so I guess it's time to pick up the pieces, try to repair this family we do have and move on with our 2.

mommy 2-2: Thinking of you...sorry that you are having to deal with this. I was thinking how difficult it would be to go from his deployment to having him home and the gears you both have to switch to manage that huge change in responsibilities. Hoping that you all can work through everything and come out the other side even stronger.

RockyMtnMom,
Thank you so much for thinking of us and your kind words. I'm not leaving here yet...I like you guys too much! I am hoping that now that he is officially back to work (today), things will improve here at home. Hoping this is just a "speedbump" on the road of life and not a major road block.
I'm learning, from all of this, to accept that life happens, and the only thing we have real control of is how we respond to the crashing waves...ride 'em or get smushed by them!
Thanks again!
