Re: Too close???

My oldest is 8 1/2 and I have only been able to stay at home for the last two years.  Before that we both worked full time jobs.  We are anti-daycare, so my husband and I always worked opposite shifts so that we would be the ones raising our kids.  Daycare works for some people, but not for us.  We don't live by any family at all (the closest being 2 1/2 hours away) so babysitters are out as well.  We wouldn't change a thing about how we have chosen to do this.... and out of all of our friends, none of them have let daycare costs choose whether or not they add another baby to their family.
