I visited with several friends last month who just have one child and their lives seemed so much more together than mine.
Walsh and I went to see “Cars 2” with a dear childhood friend, her husband and their son. My friend was so cute with her husband. They were very romantic and seemed like they actually had time to be a couple! He chose the love seat in the theater and immediately put his arm around her.
My other girlfriend’s life just seemed so together and organized. First off she didn’t have toys from 10 years ago still hanging around that had been passed down from child to child and are still in use. Everything was neat and orderly. They had a schedule and patterns. They were in a completely different stage of life than my family even though our oldest children are the same age.
So what do you think? Is one child just the right amount of kids? You can get them to events, help them with homework, feed and clothe them without going broke or crazy. Or is there something to be said for a big family?
