Default Children and Polyamory

My husband and I are actively trying to have a child. Our girlfriend is older than both of us and has an 18 year old son. When we talk about us having a baby she has very definate opinions about how a child should be raised and cared for. It's beginning to make me worried that she'll try to take a much more active role in the rearing of the child than I'm comfortable with. I mentioned my fears to my husband but probably not at the best time as we were both tired and about to go to sleep. So he probably doesn't remember the conversation. I plan to take a Child Developement class at the local community college soon to be a good well informed parent. I guess I'm just concerned she'll make me feel like I know nothing and should do everything her way. Sometimes I feel like we are both trying to be first wife instead of equal partners.
