Don't sneak up on me like that...

Two things have have brought a tear to my eye today (yes I know:
bloomin heck women do you constantly view the world through a veil of
tears? No, not really; in fact many people think I'm quite jolly.)

Where was I, oh yes nearly crying...

I thought I was more than happy with having only one child, in fact I
kind of felt that I would only have two because that is what you are
meant to do.

And let's face it, being a single mum in the wrong half of her
thirties, even with the hotest date in town, it's unlikely I'll have
the opportunity for more.

Not to mention my daughter is more than enough adorable for me.

See, not bothered; look at my face, do I look bovered?

But then I was asked if I had finished having children and my eyes
spontaneously got wet.

Then I read Dooce's labour post and that too poked me in the eye.

I am 'one and done', aren't I?

NO! Never say never! It's more than acceptable to have another in your late 30's. Millions of women do ... you can repost this when your knocking on 60 and then I'll agree!

You're not one and done at all. Give it time, you'll meet someone else and you'll look back on your wet eyes fondly! x

I thought I'd end up childless, until....
I met my husband when I was 36, I'm now 39 and married with two children. You never know what's round the corner x

Oh sweetie, it doesn't matter how many children you have, you never stop with the waterworks when you think it's all over. I have four and I still find it hard to accept that I am done (or at least doing) with the baby thing.

Thank you.

You know I really truely only ever saw myself with one, so it's ok.

But I guess as Mum of 4 says, it still catches you.

I often think I'm done but I really hope not! You have plenty of time xx

Never say never! There's still loads of baby-making time left, if you fancy it.
