I have a terrible relationship with my horrific younger brother and my DH has twin younger brothers so both of us being the eldest child was hard. Both of us were forgotten. We probably would never have HAD children had she not been a surprise, LOL! So we won't be having any more. My girl is very well rounded, not spoiled (as in she doesn't get her way), we are able to afford the best school for her, and she gets to have the childhood I never did.
My mom has almost given up on me having another... DD asked for a while but I told her babies poop and cry and would have to share her room so she's quit asking!
So how are we going to raise well rounded only children? Are you thinking about having more (I get these evil thoughts in my head but really it's unhealthy for me to have another and too late for her to have a close sibling).
The stereotypes scare me, I don't want a monster! Not that she is even remotely close to being one. Her teachers all adore her and I get compliments on her behavior all the time.
I don't think it's bad, but I do worry about the future. She is going to be my only family when I get old. Hope I do this right!
