I recently mentioned having a last baby, (I am 38 in December) to DH. My DD is 9 and DH has been part of her life since she was 3. DS is 2.
Weirdly, (I thought), he said that he felt it wouldn't be fair to DS because "DD had you to herself for seven years" and DS will get jealous because he's only had you for a couple of years.
I HAD to go back to work when DD was 3 months old whereas DS aged two is still BF to this day because I have been lucky enough this time to have a decent DH.
Seems a bit strange to me that the reason DH states for not having another DC is that DD and DS have 7 years between them and he'd like it to be fair to future DC. WTF? Did I mention that I am nearly 38 already and he wants another seven-year gap?
