At the moment Holly is an only child. So most people I meet feel the immediate need to ask when she might expect a younger sibling.
I'm often met with a look of shock, surprise or even pity when I say we are happy as a family of three and that although it isn't a definitive no, I have no actual plans to have more children.
Before having Holly we had always said we would have two children. Yet when Holly came along she completed our family in a way I hadn't expected at all. Unfortunately not everyone understands this.
Apparently it isn't fair on Holly. She'll be lonely and unhappy.
I'm selfish as I could easily have another child and provide for them.
If I concentrate all my energies on Holly, I might end up putting too much pressure on her as she grows older.
I'm obviously just not maternal at all, otherwise I'd never be able to JUST have one child.
I've got it easy. I have no idea what parenting is really like or how hard it is because I only have one child.
I've heard them all, and more.
