Re: Parents of only one child....
I only have one. An almost 14 year old. (I do have a wonderful step daughter too though)
I planned on having at least two.
But, I made a very very poor choice for a Father of my children. I quickly realized my mistake, and politely asked him to move out. For some reason, I couldn't bear to be one of those Moms with several kids all from different fathers. (I was not married to my ex) I didn't marry my DH until I was past the age of wanting more kids. I do want more, but when I imagine my future with a little one full time, I just don't want to do it.
I will be a step Grandma (which does NOT mean the same as Grandma) soon, and I have a houseful of wonderful daycare babies though.
