Because I have one child, people almost always assume that I couldn’t have more. But that’s not true. I simply didn’t want to have more than one. When I’ve said that to other moms, I’ve had mixed responses; I’ve had women tell me that I was depriving my son of the greatest gift I could give my child – a sibling (clearly, they have never met my siblings), I’ve been asked if I was afraid my child would become spoiled or be lonely or socially awkward – no, I’m not the type to give in to every whim or lock the child in the house for weeks on end. But I’ve also had women tell me that they too would have stopped after one, but for whatever reason, chose to have more kids.
