Ignite Phoenix #12 - Why I choose to have just one kid and everyone should just shut up about it
We need tolerance for parents of onlies! No I didn't have a bad pregnancy. No my child was not a terrible, temperamental baby. No trouble with the "systems" either. I love being mom, yet I don't feel compelled to bring additional life into this world. My reasons are perfectly valid --so you all can leave me alone about how selfish and uncaring I am.
I'm a mom of one beautiful and perfect little girl. I battle with chronic people pleasing syndrome so I feel the need to prove to all the non-believers that my life is indeed complete, even if I do choose to discontinue procreating.
