Hi everyone! I'm Samantha and I am a SAHM to an almost 2 year old little girl. M is a wonderful daughter! I always thought I would have a big family ( I have almost 30 first cousins, DH has 5 brothers) , but I just don't feel the longing for another like I did before I was pregnant with DD. We are 90% positive she will be our only. We are totally comfortable with our decision, but the hardest part is the comments from family. My mom was an only and hated it, but her parents were very strict and overbearing. All my cousins are constantly bugging us to have more, saying DD will be lonely spoiled etc. My daughter is incredibly outgoing and social for a 2 year old. She is very independent and I don't see her ever fitting those stereotypes. I live in a very German and catholic area which explains why everyone around me has at least 3 kids but most have more. Everyone acts like it's child abuse to not have more. I have thought of some nice comebacks for our next family gathering though. Hopefully that will put an end to all the comments.
