Plus as my mom gets older and she has health problems and i know i will have to carry the responsibilty of seeing after her all alone. I live hours away. Have u considered adopting or foster care? I know people who do that. Dont jews have something similar to Catholic Social Services. My friend's brother and his wife adopted through them
Thank you for commenting. Yes..there are Jewish Family Services. No...we haven't considered adoption or foster care. Our plan..well my plan...my husband was more or less like "We can have as many children that you want to have...." (this was before we knew I had any issues) so it's always been really my decision but we only planned for one child.
Marah just to give you the opposite side...

I grew up with my sister who is 2 years younger than me....we are like oil and water...we do NOT get along. I love her because she is my sister...but growing up we went AT it. I'm talking sending each other to the ER knocking holes in the walls MMA level fighting. At one point I think the doctor at the ER was convienced my dad was abusing us because he refused to believe that I threw my sister down the stairs and then continued to whip her ass even though I knew her leg was broken (don't feel bad for her...she kicked me in the knee and tore some ligaments so we were even stevens in my book).

I think most of our conflict was/is because our personailites are polar opposites and as kids because we were so close in age, we were "forced" to be close. Everyone assumed that because we were close in age and both girls that we would be BFFs...not even close. Not to mention, we grew up in a small town and were compared to each other which lead to a lot of competition and hurt feelings. Comparing kids that are night and day causes lots of problems because one feels like they aren't good enough or as good as the other.

It's funny because I'm childfree and my sister has two who are 4 years apart...a girl and a boy and they are MMA fighters in training as well. The 5 year old girl sent the 9 year old boy to the ER last weekend because she hit him upside the head with her moms 4 inch heeled boots...left a nasty cut on his forehead. With them the only thing that stops that constant fighting and bickering is letting them do thier own thing....trying to get them to play together or even watch the same tv leads to arguing over who's turn it is to pick the show, how loud the tv is and my all time favorite...who gets to sit where in relation to the tv on the sofa. The entire time I was there over christmas vacation I felt like I needed to wear a ref outfit. The 5 year old is bossy and the 9 year old is very meek and mild mannered til he gets pushed to his limit and then its all bets are off.

Trust me...one kid is where it's at!

The reason I ask is that right now hubby & I have a 20-month old, with talk about fostering/adoption but in the future.

While talking about it the other night, I had to level with my husband and tell him that I'm simply not ready for another child right now, and I'm not sure when I will be ready. Although I reserve the right to change my mind, at this point in time, on Friday, January 20, 2012, I actually don't want any more children.

I hope that doesn't make me sound selfish. But I always said I didn't want any more children than I can afford... not just monetarily but most importantly, emotionally. I believe financially we can handle it, but I'm afraid that I don't have the emotional capability to "share" myself with another child right now. I would hate to bring another child into this world (or our home) and he or she feel unloved or unwanted.

Ah... I'm rambling so maybe I should stop right here. But to recap: to the mothers of just 1 child, what was your reasoning?
I was always on the fence about having kids. I wanted 2 or none. I put my education/career goals first, and my child came later. Looks like the next one will require medical intervention. I don't think I'm up for all that, and we're content with one.
Thank you, Juanab, and Chicago K for responding. I was just curious to see what some of your views/circumstances were. For some reason coworkers/friends are trying to lay guilt/pressure on us to have another child... "your son needs a playmate... he'll be lonely... don't you want to try for a little girl?" ...and honestly I'm not feelin' it.

Sorry Marah to have hijacked your topic - your son's question kinda broke my heart too and I was feeling rather selfish in my current mindset.

No..you weren't rambling. I appreciate the comments. I don't think what you've stated sounds selfish at all..if more people thought that way..there would be a lot less unwanted and devasted children in the world...I believe.

So I backtracked a little. Most people covered what I think about siblings, Marah. My brother and I are 2 and 1/2 years apart and from the minute he was born I became a second mother to him. My dad likes to tell the story about me bathing him and then putting baby powder on him from head to toe. My dad laughs hard every single time he thinks about how he came out the bathroom looking like a ghost. I fought boys for my brother. I told off his Guidance Counselor in high school when she told him he could be a "Postal Worker" instead of going to college. I went ahead and helped him get into college. I've had nightmares about something happening to my brother and woke up sobbing and couldn't go back to sleep. I love my brother with everything in me and I can't imagine being the only child. But of course, you don't really miss what you never really knew...so I could have been perfectly fine.

With that being said, my friend has a sister that sounds like Nap above lol. They pretty much hate each other. Honestly, I feel like it is a toss up when it comes to sisters. I have one friend who literally cannot go anywhere without her sis tagging along ( they are grown women). I know of several sisters who CANNOT stand each other. I rarely see these scenarios with brother/sister or brother/brother families.

[QUOTE]Interviewer: What does landing one of the biggest roles for a young actor (on Hunger Games) mean to you?


Josh Hutcherson: It means the world to me! I wanted this role so badly. I think I hadn’t read a script or book that I connected more with that I did with Peeta. I had never read a character that was more like who I am as a person and had kind of my core values and what I believe in. It was crazy! So for me, it was it was a do or die situation, almost. I never felt that I was more right for a role in my life. It was kind of like if I didn’t get it, I didn’t know how I would react … so it’s just very good that I did get it./QUOTE]

This MMA is really disturbing. I can't stand to look at it at all.

All I care about is the integrity of the movie. If they try to squish all three books in one movie, I ain't going to see that sh*t.

^^Those outfits look accurate, no? I thought they were just black bodysuits and then they were set on "fire." Perhaps her cape isn't on yet?

And I agree, if they dare try to cram all three books into one film, I'm definitely waiting for DVD. I think they are going to try to do it like Twilight though.

well I can't remember whatever company is doing it, figured out that this might be some big **** movie, so they already decided on the second movie...let me see...

thats from la times, but I read it on a different site a while ago.

I still haven't read the third one since amazon messed it up on my kindle....I think I'm just gonna wait a while and then read them over and then cry and then dance and then cry.

Sweet, thanks! The third one is my least favorite out of the trilogy, but it's still a good book. I didn't like the ending though. Actually, it was the only one that didn't make me cry.

I shed a tear when I watched the trailer.


I get a little watery eyed when I think about march...and when It comes out....and just thinking about it in general...I'm getting teary eyed right now.

I don't know why I'm so emotional over things.

I cried at the trailer of the dark knight rises.

EVERYTHING I LOVE ENDS!!


I cried the other week when harry was riding buckbeak in the prisoner of azkaban, when I was watching it. Like no reason...i just started crying.
