Occasional Twinges

I still get occasional twinges.

Don't get me wrong. I love my son so much that it's painful. I am so very grateful to have him in my life.

And I am well aware that we don't have the financial (or even perhaps emotional) resources to raise a second child.

But if we did have those resources... just say we did... It would be really nice to have a choice about it.

Because, apparently, when you have one child, people don't think anything of asking if you plan to have another. And even though I have buckets of experience with dealing with these kind of questions, it really doesn't get any easier.


  1. I just discovered your blog through Andrea's blog.... and can I say that I can TOTALLY relate to this. It does not get any easier. And it doesn't get any easier when you reach a certain age and people STOP asking....

    But I too am blessed with an incredible son... and thank God for him daily....
