Hi! We are very happy with our family of 3.
I find I often don't have too much in common with my friends in my mom's group, even though we share the same parenting philosophies. They always tell me how nice it must be to only have one
Our family size is perfect for us.
I love that I don't have to think about a huge vehicle to transport our family for day-to-day activities.
I also feel bad because I tend to lack empathy with some of my friends who have chosen to have more children and then complain about how hard or difficult it is.
She is wonderful and our lives are truly richer and fuller with her here. We feel so complete and happy. I like being able to focus on one thing. Part of the decision is financial. We want to be able to afford many opportunities for her & want to be home until she is in school. Part of the decision is, we know our marriage very well. We are aware how important it is to preserve and nurture...us!
I look forward to chatting and sharing with you ladies...as an only myself, I can answer lots of questions about what it means and feels to be an "only."
There are many benefit and some drawbacks.
Thanks for writing Shannon, I needed the above words today. It is our 9th Anniversary today and preserving and nurturing us is important as well. The other reasons are so true for us as well.
|One of the things I've had to get used to, is all the comments and suggestions we get from friends, family and complete strangers.|
