I wish I only wanted one child.
I wish I could be one of the thousands (millions?) of people who choose to have an only child and are perfectly happy and content with their decision.
Some days, days like today, I would give anything for the ability to be one of those people who can argue with conviction that having an only child is not just okay, it's preferable.
Are less of an financial and emotional stress for parents.
May be more likely to flourish under their parents undivided attention.
Are easier to travel with and provide extraordinary experiences for.
Need not be spoiled if parented judiciously.
Need not be lonely in the embrace of a large, loving extended family.
Great points aren't they?
It would certainly be pretty hard to argue against them with someone who was equipped to debate with confidence and passion and heartfelt conviction.
God, I wish I were that person.
