Do you ever feel that your child is missing out because he/she is an “only child?”
I always had my little sister as a playmate. She’ll tell you that having me as a big sister wasn’t easy. I was relentless. But at the end of the day, we shared a bunk bed (yes, I always slept on top) and giggled in the dark. At family reunions with strange relatives, my sister and I always had each other to cling to.
M doesn’t seem to mind being an only child. She’s center stage, in the spotlight. She has her mama all to herself.
To be sure, I’ve worked extra-hard to encourage M’s friendships with her girlfriends. Although they might not be blood-related, she and her friends have slumber parties, dress their dolls, and celebrate birthdays together. They also bicker like sisters.
Share your thoughts about being the single parent of an only child:
Do you dream about having another baby in the future? Or, are you satisfied with your little family as it is?
