Apparently 4/10/15 was ‘siblings day’. Not sure if this a legit holiday or it was made up by Facebook and Instagram.
I grew up with a sibling. My BFF (who lived across the street) had 2 siblings. Siblings seem cool! They are a built in playmate. They are a secret keeper. They are a teacher.
Bubba’s going to miss all that, and I’m sad for her.
I’m just too old (39) to have more kids. I’d want to have them right now (before I hit 41) and I just don’t think my body (or my ‘downstairs’) can handle being pregnant again.
Also, taking care of 1 year old while pregnant would be nearly impossible, assuming I’ll be dizzy and very sick like the last time. I couldn’t even get out of bed for the first trimester, so running around after a baby (she’d be walking or crawling by then) sounds rough!
Plus – kids are expensive! I mean, just the hospital bills and daycare might kill me. (Bubba is eating for free and wearing hand me down clothes)
So, Bubba is an only child. Obviously many people are only children, and they grow up just fine. I just hope she’s ok.
