I can’t be the only one experiencing this. Ever since Jacks arrival I find a lot of people making comments like; “When is Jack getting to be a big brother?”, “Do you plan on having more?”, “When are you going to try for a girl?”…um, what?
When people ask these sorts of questions, or start making comments my answers are always along the lines of “No, we don’t plan on having any more children. The end.” Then I get bitched at, “He needs a sibling.” “No one wants to be an only child.” Blah blah blah…
I’m not saying I would never have any more children, but no I do not plan on it. I’m completely happy with my life right now. I love my boyfriend, and our son. I’m looking forward to buying our first house next spring, and extremely excited to watch Jack grow and accomplish so many new things over the next few years. I don’t think a child needs a sibling. I’m sure it’s different for every child. The only thing that makes me think I may want to have another baby some day is so when Tyler and I pass away Jack would still have immediate family,and obviously because I enjoy being a mom.
Jack was not a planned pregnancy, seeing as I was on birth control when he was conceived but I don’t regret a thing. I love him so much, and feel really lucky to be his mom. I am back on birth control since having Jack, so currently trying to prevent any future pregnancies.
Question: What are your thoughts on only children?
