When people look at me sideways because I say I’m one and done, I gives no fuks. Why people have an opinion about my life and my uterus is beyond me. When they tell me “you can have just oooonnne”. Like Bruno Mars, I say don’t believe me just watch. Watch me have only one. They have an opinion but are they going to kick in financially? Nope! Are they gonna give up their restful nights? Nope! Yet, they are giving me advice about my life. They don’t live their life according to my thoughts, and I sure as hell am going to live mine that way either  

Also, I was an only child for 17 years. When my brother came along, I was pretty much formed. We are extremely close, but I’m like a second mom. We were both “only children” and we are well adjusted, sharing, and extremely social individuals. We love being around people, but we love being alone too. We never get bored because we have always had to entertain ourselves. Being an only child rocked. My parents had endless time and resources to spend on me, and we are closer now because of it. Kudos to people who want to have a big family, but that is not your journey. When people butt their noses in, say with confidence that you will not be expanding your family. You don’t owe any explanations or excuses.
