Yes, it’s a hung parliament and the country is going to hell in a boat but we have no idea what colours the sails are yet.  Yes, I am glued to the bbc as I type this (luckily I have two monitors at work; no this doesn’t make me important) but I flipped to the Guardian and my heart has sunk.


In Life and Style I have been educated about the phrase ‘lonely only’; I have heard how depressing it can be to look out the window and see your child playing on their own.


So, I am now adding to my basic mother guilt, not only the guilt of being a single parent family, but the guilt that my daughter will, undoubtedly, be an only child.


What does this conjure up to you?

Being an only child can be a good or bad thing, just as having siblings can be too. I wouldn't beat yourself up over it.

Don't feel guilty about just one!
She won't be playing by herself once she hits school and her superpower (Personality PLUS) takes over. She'll have more friends than she can count as the years go by. :D
