Before we had our baby, I had it in my head that I'd like to have 2 kids. My hubby didn't mind having 2 or none, if that's what I wanted. After we had our 1st baby, I didn't want anymore kids. I had a very traumatic birthing experience, very bad baby blues, and I'm almost 35 and a whole bunch of other reasons. I was sad that I didn't want anymore kids because I kept thinking that if something happened to my husband & I, our son wouldn't have anyone. But my husband brought up some good points: (1) our son would have his own family some day, (2) having a sibling doesn't always mean they'll be close (because my brother & I barely talk). Our little guy is now 10 months old. Not too soon after he was born, people started asking when we were going to have our 2nd. My answer was always that we're happy with just one and the response I always get is a funny look, followed by "you can't just have one". And I always seem to feel that I have to defend why we're happy with just one. It's very frustrating to hear this over and over again. Is anyone is a similar situation? What are your responses when people say you can't just have one?
