Only child regrets?
We currently only have one son (3.5 years old). My husband and I are also both only children, but I REALLY want a second kid before it's too late (we are both 36). My husband doesn't feel that need and said he was perfectly fine as an only child, whereas I remember desperately wanting a sibling. But then I wonder if it's worth a shot because of our age, and increase risk of having a kid with autism or another disability. Money is tight for us which is my husband's number one reason for not really wanting a second one. I also know as an only kid my parents were able to afford a lot more things for me than if I had a sibling. For example, just looking at the costs of summer camps when he's older. If it's just him, he could do these really cool ones that are $400+/week, but if there's a second kid, then that pretty much takes it out of the equation. So I guess my questions are: 1. Others that were only children, do you wish you had a sibling, or were you happy as an only child? (Alternatively, if you had siblings, do you wish you were only child) 2. Parents who only have one kid, do you wish you had a second? 3. Am I overthinking the financial aspect or just being smart?
