I am a stay at home mom of a 3 almost 4 year old. I have been home with my 3 year old off and on since he was a year an a half. I recently went back to school this past spring and just reapplied for an accelerated nursing program. my husband is preparing to deploy and we are contemplating having a second child. I have raise my 3 yr pretty much by my self since his dad is always working I balance home life and school with taking care of my son and still trying to find a job. since i may be getting into a nursing program soon I really can work because school is going to be very demanding. he currently goes to preschool 3 days a week part time but eventually may have to go full time. my question is, is insane to bring in a second child right now. I don't want the age difference to be too far off or too close, but when is the right time to have a second child? My friends with multiple children and are apart of the military say if my husband is around or not I will always do most of the work. my friends with no children or 1 child say to wait till im in a better place all around but really is there ever a good time to have another baby? If anyone can shed some light I would be grateful.
