As I mentioned in my above post, I do worry about both me and my husband being the ones responsible for our parents as they get older, but we'll make it work. I've just as often seen friends with siblings get stuck as the only one willing to help or ending up in messy disagreements over care. At least as an only I know it will be my responsibility and I'll do the best I can, you know?
I guess there's always a chance you won't have grandchildren, or won't have good relationships with your kids, that could happen with two kids too unfortunately. I don't think I'd let that be the sole reason not to have an only.
That is a lot to consider...hope something in that was helpful.Olivia Józefa: July 2013 . Expecting #2: July 2015
