How did you plan for Baby #2?
My spouse wants to have our second child so that our LOs are about 2-3 years apart. With the cost of living in our area so high, I’m struggling with the fact that I may need to be a SAHM. We can afford for me to do so (luckily), but even with our current baby I knew I was ready to get back to work when my maternity leave was over. How do/did you juggle the costs of a second child? What helped you decide to stay home or go back to work (whether mom, dad, or both)? Finally...I can barely handle this one and our two large (80 lb each) dogs—how do I wrangle all of them plus a newbie? TYIA for any advice!
