Now that Shelby is 6-months old I have people ask me all the time.
'Ready for Another???'
Why do people do that?
It's just like right after you get married people assume you're going to pop a child out.
As IF it's EASY for everyone.
I find these questions a little much.
I know a lot of people don't know any better but it still drives me bonkers.
Or even better?
When you're single and people ask you when you're going to get married.
'Well, MAYBE when I find someone WORTH marrying!'
But going back to the, 'are you ready for another' is when you reply that you're good with only one.
People look horrified and ask, REALLY??
You don't want to give Shelby siblings?
She's going to be an only child?
This is where we are right now.
I will soon be 38 and Brad is 35.
We aren't young.
Having babies when you're older comes with risks, not to mention less energy.
We have decided that we are happy and content with one child.
I know that may seem selfish to some people but there are several reasons why we have made this choice and I'm not going to go into each reason to justify.
Believe it or not, being an only child isn't a horrible thing as same people might believe.
I have contemplated about writing this post for some time but finally decided to pull the trigger after reading this article.
I think it sums things up pretty well.
