I do think back to having 1 child and realise that things were so much easier in terms of getting sleep, working full time, etc, but I always felt like we weren't done having kids and that was overwhelming when I just had one. Having two is fantastic in so many ways. They play together a lot (eventhough they are nearly 5 years apart) and seeing my 2 children just adoring each other really warms my heart. I love having 2. I don't love having a dd who is nearly 2 and doesn't sleep well, but really that's not the fault of being a 2nd child.
