My 2.5 year old is perfect. I know that's cocky and every mom thinks their kid is the perfect one, well... Most moms..... Anyway he's so good and he's really smart and sleeps great! I don't think I could have another child as perfect as him. Plus I enjoy spoiling the shit out of him and not having to worry about sharing time with other kids. I want to give him the perfect amazing life he deserves.
And yes I know he's not perfect really, he has his tantrums, he can be a handfulll but I could never ever ask for a better kid!!!'
I only want one as well. I was an only child and loved it. Dh was the middle of 3 and hated it....so one it is! Currently 34 weeks pregnant with our lil girl!

And wouldn't you want him to know the love of having a sibbling? having a friend for life?
Say what? Freind for life? ROFL. I'm glad you feel like that with your sibs but I and my little bro spent most of our child hood trying to kill each other and psychologically scar each other. Our fighting and the fighting I see between other sibs is one of the reasons I will never have another child.
What happens when you and DH are gone? Who will he share childhood memories with? Who will he have holidays with? What happens, God forbid, if he has to make life and death choices and he has to sit all alone somewhere pondering when and how to remove life support from you or your DH? Just kidding, have as many as you want, I don't care.

OP I see nothing wrong with only one. I used to want tons of kids because I hoped that they would get along like a fairy tell,lol. I was 6. My bro and I are close now at 33 and 36 but growing up not so much. At one point my mom actually looked into sending us to separate boarding schools, after I tried to push my brother out of a hay loft and he tried stabbing me with a pitch fork. My fiancé (36) hasn't talked to his identical twin in 6 months, and this was after years of fighting.
For the women who have awesome relationships with their sibs, I will freely admit I'm envious, but I'm not willing to spend another 5 years ttc only to have them hate each other.
