Ok, mom's of one. I think maybe we've all had the thought of having a second child. I think I battle with myself nearly every other month wondering if I should have another, then I always see another mother at the park, grocery, etc. with 2+ kids in tow and let's face it, she looks exhausted. That's always enough to cure me of wanting another child.
Let's not forget to mention our family members who try to guilt us into having another child by saying "poor thing needs someone to play with". Well, my only child is nearly 5, we've attending all sorts of classes & programs over the years (library storytime, Kindermusik, etc.) plus the fact she just started preschool and I'm happy to report she's a social butterfly without a sibling.
I'm not a perfect mom but I'm glad that by only having one that I've been able to concentrate on her needs by teaching her how to be a good person as well as helping her along academically too. I'm still working on having one child and raising her well...Not to mention I wanted some sanity left over for myself too!
