This is actually the second time I've been lucky enough to work with Dreambaby®. Last time I was able to try out some of their furniture anchors (spoiler alert, they worked great) and this time they sent me some decals for sliding glass doors and a stroller bag.
I love decorating our house, but I have a problem. You see, I get bored easily. I like to move stuff around. I change which room belong to which kid on a whim. I rotate furniture around like it's my job. All of that makes it really difficult to decorate!

Some of you may have noticed that posts have been a bit, er, scarce lately.
No, I haven't stopped blogging.
Right now I'm in my final week of school. Next Tuesday I will hand in the last of my assignments and I will officially be done.
I will be graduating with my Bachelor's in Psychology with an emphasis in Child Development.
AND if I bust my hump on these last 2 projects I just may graduate with my 4.0 intact.
Now, that may not sound like much to some, but this is huge for me. 10 years ago I dropped out of college with terrible grades, no direction, and no interest. Today I'm finally crossing this college thing of my to-do list. And dammit, I'm going to do it right.
So please hang in there, I promise I will return.
I have some great giveaways planned, including a HUGE anniversary giveaway next month that I have a ton of sponsors lined up for already.
For as long as I can remember I have always been told that it's better to have children before 35 because after that magical age the chances of complications and problems go way up. I (naively) thought that I would be married with 2 kids by the time I was 25, and then be done. Of course, I also thought I'd be in some super successful career by that point and have at least a million dollars. Obviously, I was misinformed on how real life would go.
I didn't even meet my now-husband until I was nearly 26, so needless to say I was pretty behind my original estimates. I gave birth to our daughter when I was 27, my son 2 weeks before I turned 31, and this baby will make his or her appearance with a mommy at the ripe old age of 32.
No doubt that we've crammed a lot of life into the last 6 years. The constant exhaustion and disheveled state of the house (and myself) can attest to that. But at the doctor's two day ago I was force to answer a question I'd been agonizing over for the last 7 months.
Are we done?
My midwife was ready to have the birth control conversation, which is understandable as I am nearing the end of the pregnancy. The big question at this point is do I choose something temporary, or a bit more permanent?
In less than 2 months we will have 3 kids. Two under two along with my unruly preschooler. I am anticipating a lot of wine (and whine) in my future. It won't be easy, I know. But will it be enough?
I see so many women who joke about the doctor taking the baby and everything else at the same time. They're done! D-O-N-E, done! I'm jealous of their confidence. We may be done, but I don't know. I'm not ready to make that final decision yet.
In the back of my head though I feel like I'm running out of time if we do choose to go for a fourth. By the time I heal from this delivery and we start trying again, how long do I really have? How quickly do I have to decide in order to have that child before I turn 35? I know so many mothers have children after that magic age, and they do so without complications or problems.
So are we done? I don't know, but I'm not ready to throw in the towel yet.
So, midwife, sign me up for some of that non-permanent birth control (because I'm so not ready to have one right away), but don't count me out yet.
