Due to our difficult time through labor and delivery, we have almost decided on only having one child.
Many family members say “Just wait, you’ll want another one” or “she needs a partner in crime”.
The truth is, I’d love a family of four, but I also want to be able to give my daughter everything I can as her parent. That means providing her with good out-of-school activities, a car when she can drive and a good college education (or start to her future- whichever she may choose). I know that my husband and I would continue to work hard with another child, but I also feel comfortable with our small family.
On the other hand, they grow so fast and so would love to relive all the baby snuggles.
Any other moms struggle with this choice after your first? I would love to hear your thoughts and experiences.
