My cousin is pregnant and they’re in need of a crib. Well…. since Kirra’s crib/toddler bed converts also into a full size bed and not a twin, we want to give it to them…. we gave back all of the infant clothes and my sister sold them in a garage sale… I can’t imagine Kirra at 3 years of age sleeping in a full size bed. That’s like a queen bed. We’re actually getting my grandma’s bed for her. I’m very excited. She’s getting so big I can hardly remember her as an infant now!
So needless to say…. in a sense only having one child is sinking in more! As all of my friends keep getting pregnant [again] i get all mushy and slight hmmmm especially when I see their perfectly adorable newborns…. but then when I go and sit at the drawing board and I remember why we only want one….. Its deeply personal… some people want 2/3/more and some just want one. Why the stigma with one? When people ask me if i’m haing more,and I say no, i feel like their eyeballs are going to pop out of their head as they swing it around and gasp why????
Once in a while I do wonder if she’ll beg us for a sibling, but we’ve decided to worry about that when the time comes. Right now I just can’t imagine having another one, I just love Kirra so much. I know that people do obviously love their second children just as much… but for me, i can only imagine us with Kirra. A lot of people have told me …. NOOOO you have to have more than 1 child… she’ll be spoiled, what will you do when you argue you won’t have another child to fall back on… she won’t have any siblings to grow up with… Kirra is fortunate to have an amazing group of friends, who’s moms are my friends… so I feel like we’re amazingly lucky….and there are lots of amazing single children out there that have done very well…
