I’m looking to hear from people who are one and done and happy with their choice. Would also love to know what made you decide. I do not want to hear why you ultimately decided to have 2 and it’s great. Ha sorry, but I already hear that enough.
I am pretty sure I want just the one kid (3 yo DD) but I feel an incredible amount of guilt and fear of regret. I never had an urge to have kids but did it because my DH wanted to and it seemed like a life experience I wanted to have. And it’s the best. She is the most amazing kid and I am happier than I could have ever imagined. I don’t want to mess that up with another kid. Life is fun and easy right now. I’m an only child and it was totally fine. That said, I feel like I am doing her a horrible disservice and am just a selfish, awful person for this. There must be a reason everyone else has more than one kid, so should I too? She has cousins but they live cross country though we’d consider moving to be closer to them. My DH would like another but would be happy with 1.
Anyway, sorry for the rambling! Really I think I want people to justify my choice in having one kid. It keeps me up at night. I’m 39 so need to decide soon if we are trying for #2.
