I totally agree on the one-on-one time. I have two children - the oldest is a 17 year old boy and the youngest is a 12 year old girl. Needless to say, they have never had much in common. Early on I learned the need for quality time with each of them. I now have *wonderful* conversations with my son from the deep philosophical to the silly - I have great creative time with my daughter and we are at the beginning stages of great conversation (the oldest always dominates conversation time, even at the dinner table :)! ).

Keep enjoying your children... :) !


As I watch my friends with more than the one child I have, I often wonder how they do it. It IS so much easier with one. Sure, there's the "they entertain each other" benefit of siblings, but my attention is not divided two, three or seven times. It is much much easier. I like that you came away from the experiences with hope, rather than overwhelming feelings.

Amy, your post today made me smile. I'm so happy you had these experiences, and like Wendy, I am happy you came away with hope.
