In my never-ending quest to find reasons to tick people off in the blogosphere, I’ve actually contemplated putting up a blogroll in my sidebar entitled something like “A Quiverfull of One – Bloggers With An Only Child”. I did previously have a “Moms of Onlies” blogroll, but never added it to this blog. However, I thought the addition of the term quiverfull might really make some people sit up and take notice. I’d also include a link to that classic Laine’s Letter “Private, Private, Private”.
However, I haven’t been feeling fully sadistic lately so it’s just been an idea running around in my head.
In the midst of this day I said to David something like, “If I had to do this all alone every day I would absolutely have to be committed.” I’m not trying to be irreverent about people who end up committed. I truly believe that if I had more than one child and/or I had a husband who worked away from home I would end up seriously disturbed.
God knew what He was doing when He gave me a husband who works at home and an only child.
I no longer feel guilty about the only child thing. This is EXACTLY where I am supposed to be in life.
God bless you moms and dads who have multiple children and do it alone all day. But, by golly, I’m thankful for my precious only child and not ashamed to tell the world that I’m satisfied this is God’s best for me. And David. And Caroline.
And in case you were wondering… Those lovely bracelets are my napkin rings that Caroline took from the box of “shineys” (napkin rings).
