Toddler Talk Thursday - Basic Addition

Welcome to week 23 of Toddler Talk Thursday! Where Family and Life in Las Vegas, Crazy about my Baybah, and My Life as a Sippy Cup Mom Talk all things Toddler!

Toddler Talk Thursday was created as a place for moms and dads of toddlers to come together over a weekly topic and share ideas, go-to toys, or products. It is a great way to meet other bloggers of toddlers. Each week the topic will be different; we invite you to link up, share your weekly Toddler Talk!!

Each week the hosts will travel around to each blog that links up, and pick an idea, story, or picture they think was a great example of that weeks topic. In order to qualify for this you need to blog about this week's topic, and follow the hosts. Comments letting us know you are participating are always great too. If we choose your blog, we will link back to your post the following week.

Our highlighted blog this week is:

Party of 5- We loved the pictures of Caleb and The Friend! Thanks for joining us!

This week’s topic is :

Adding to your family - how did/do you know you are ready?
Parents who have already done so - please feel free to share your story of finding out #2 or 3+ was coming along, tips, advice, or anything you think will add to this.

We had Little M in 2004 and she was the only child for over four years! When we were dating/engaged, we talked about having a family more often than not! I was so happy that we were both on the same page, family wise, but we're still both stuck on how many we actually want and need. Anyways, we decided that we were ready to have baby two after my father past away, it was a sad time, but we knew that he wanted us to have more children because we were such good parents. But when we started trying for baby two, we ran into bumps... that's a whole other post. So it took a little longer than expected. We found out after Little M turned 4, I was super duper excited. I had lost 20 lbs, work was going great but we were still living at home (and we still are). Now Baby m is almost 2, a hand ful, but wouldn't have done anything differently.

So glad that we got pregnant when we did. My sister and I were two years apart and that was great that we were so close, but we were a hand full! Little M and Baby M are 4 years apart and ever since the day Baby M was born Little M has been the best Little Mommy ever! She's super protective and loves to help mommy. Laundry, dishes, diaper changes, you name it.

We also were very prepared for baby number two as we knew more or less what to expect. We saved all the cutest baby clothes and we already had a crib. We saved so much more money. With our first we saved quite a bit to because this was the first "great-grandchild" on both sides!

Baby M was such a big success!

Now baby #3.... with both Hubs and I out of a job (official job, that is) we have to wait a bit more than we wanted. We actually wanted to try sooner than the last. But we've decided to wait another 2 years until we become more financially secure. And obviously (maybe) we're hoping for a boy!

If you're thinking of having another baby, look at what you have, make sure you have enough room and consider the gender and what options you have available. For us, if we had another one we would definitely have to move out or remodel to make our master bedroom bigger! We like our baby to co-sleep for a while and then have their own room so that they don't wake up the other babies!

This link up is for families that have toddlers. Raising a toddler can be fun, crazy, exciting, and exhausting. Sharing what works for you could give other families another way to do things.

Have Fun!

Next weeks topic will be:
Potty Training: When will you start potty training? Those of you that did, share your tips!

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
