Anyone have only one child by choice? What was the reason?

It isn’t completely by choice but I had so many miscarriages and health issues trying for my first that I don’t think I could mentally try again.

That’s the plan now. I want to experience and share the love, growth, etc. of a child. I want to be a part of that human experiment and experience all that comes with it. But I want to leave resources (time, energy, money) to travel the world with my family and alleviate stress that might come with shortages in those resources generally. We might change our mind and have a second or adopt, I’m a planner by nature but nature doesn’t like plans.

Plus, my first is perfect 😉

I got an email last night from a 7th-grade parent because her son said I mentioned the words "male privilege" in class, and she is very concerned about how that is related to ELA (she said "reading"), and she is concerned about this being taught in public schools. To be clear, I didn't do a lesson on this subject but we did discuss rights versus privileges. I've had multiple parents contact the school/get upset with me because of things like his. It's exhausting... Thoughts?

I know I’ll probably catch flack for this but feel compelled to say it anyway. I get really upset when I see parents teaching their kids to steal on the subway. I swear I’ve seen so many times a parent has their little 4 year old duck under the turnstile and open the door for them. It’s not just stealing $2.75 from the city. It’s stealing from the moral character of your kids. At least pay your way and demonstrate being a lawful contributor to society, kids ride free for a lot of stuff anyway

So I had a question for you moms. Sometimes my nanny does things differently than I would and I if it’s a big no I make it very clear that I want it a different way. For example, baby started solids, and she makes fresh food for him everyday. She doesn’t do it when he’s taking his first nap and will do it after he’s up and hungry (and cranky). Yesterday I told her hey why don’t you make his food when he’s sleeping, and she was not receptive for whatever reason.. contd

Wondering if anyone who has gone through divorce and custody has any advice?

Me and my wife moved to US in the last few years and recently had a baby. Both of us work in relatively stressful jobs. I am having conflicts with her on how to raise kids - my wife and mil don’t see daycare or nanny as viable options, and want to rely on grandparents from both sides to help with the same. They haven’t seen too many cases of children going to daycare in India in their family. Who else has faced this issue, and any thoughts on resolving the same? This is causing a strain b/w us.

Looking for a new watch AD in the Dallas area. I have a $20k purchase history from my usual AD, got a call for a RG Daytona on Oysterflex. I walk in, and there’s this kid with a 5711 on the wrist, with the entire sales staff huddled around him (no hate to him). He walks out with a little green Rolex bag and I find out that my Daytona was sold to him instead. My SA then tells me to buy a JLC Polaris in rose gold, saying (1) it’s a better watch and (2) if I buy it, I might get a WG in a few months

Does your school have a hat/hood rule?? I just don’t really see the point. I do not care at all if a student wants to wear a hat or feels inclined to put their hood up. What are everyone else’s thoughts? Should I care about this? I feel like I have bigger fish to fry this year!

Ladies with no kids, please pick one. (Like the comment that resonates with you the most) 1) You genuinely see yourself as a future mother who wants to raise a baby or two and have a family of more than just you and your spouse 2) You just want kids because you feel like you'll be missing out/regret it later 3) You don't want kids
