    The Power Of One

    | Chicopee, MA, USA | Parents & Guardians, Theme Of The Month, Top

    (We have recently moved into a new house across from a family with lots of kids. The neighbor comes over, and points to me playing in the yard.)

    Neighbor: “Is that your oldest daughter?”

    Mom: “Well, sort of; she’s the only one.”

    Neighbor: “You have boys then?”

    Mom: “Nope, just her.”

    (The neighbor suddenly looks sad.)

    Neighbor: “Oh, you just have the one?”

    Mom: “Yeah, I did it right the first time.”

    (The neighbor never mentioned my only-child status again.)
