I am a 36 year old mother of 1. My daughter is 8 going on to 20 and she is the best thing that has ever happened to me, she really is the ideal child. She's smart, mature for her age and very independent. But the problem is that my daughter is always asking me for a sibling. I really feel bad for her since she really doesnt have many cousins because none of my sisters and brothers are interested in having children and the cousins she does have live far away. She expresses how lonely she feels and she has even broken down into tears. I just think having them this far apart will be like having an only child all over again. I know she is very maternal and loves kids but she'll be hitting her teens soon and her interest will change. My husband is really a great man and he would also love to have one, but he says that the decision is mine since my body is the one that will be going thru the changes. Am I happy with my life the way it is with one child? Yes...I can give her things I could only dream of having as a child and I know that will change with another baby. We have a pretty good life, we're not rich (far from it) but we enjoy life - we do a lot of traveling and I know that will also change drastically. Do I feel like I might regret it? At times I do and at others I am so happy I only have one. My husband tells me not to have one just to satisfy her or him that I have to desire it. I really went through a tough time with my daughter as baby...I had post partum depression and she was always crying because she had colics. I didn't enjoy her as a baby because I was so depressed and at sometimes I would like to have that chance again and know what it's really like to enjoy my baby. But its not a guarantee that I won't get the depression again. I guess I'm afraid as to how much my life will change, I know finances will be a lot tighter, couple time will be tougher to get and me time will be out of the quesiton. I know that a lot of the responsiblity will be on me since my husband travels out of the country a lot for business, so I'm also afraid of that. I remember how hard that was with my first daughter. PLEASE HELP ME.....Am I considering having one for the wrong reasons????
