This is not always a good thing on either count. I was an only child till I was eleven and it was AWFUL. My parents were so focused on me all the time the pressure was enormous. I find that with my kids, yes, I'm spread thinner, but at the same time they have to do more on their own and are both independent and have some freedom that I didn't have growing up, not to mention having siblings has been a really good experience in many ways (again, not taking away from any families with 1 child at all)

    THere are benefits to everything and drawbacks to them. People often tell you only the drawbacks of what you do while focusing on the benefits of what they did.
    This part is true. I have noticed the same. I have always noticed this myself. By the way do you home school or do they go to school?

    im so sorry you have had your pregnancy spolied by their reactions, dont let them ruin this experience for you. As far as how to deal with others whenever anyone brings it up i always make it very clear that i love having a large family, i love kids and when im asked if i'm done i always respond that 'i'd love more. Being really positive seems to shut them down (at least in my experience) they often act shocked when i say i'd love more kids, but they dont push it any further.
    yes F*** what they think!! it's not their family or their life, if you want to add to your family then do and enjoy every moment of it, i hope you get to add the 1 or 2 more babies that you wish for and never say never for girls, i had 2 girls in a row after 4 boys, its possible!!

    two of my favorite quotes are "the greatest gift you can give your children is another sibling" and "you never regret the children you have, only the ones you dont"
    I really love those two quotes! And I do believe them to be true. This is why her comment about taking away from my existing kids were so upsetting. I decided thatís her opinion and nothing to do with me. Do you homeschool your kids? X

    Yes, I homeschool my younger three. My older boys (who I also homeschooled) are adults now. One is at university and the other works.
