Gloomy One-and-doners

It was a big mistake to join the FB group for parents of only children. I had no idea that all we would do is moan about how it was a huge mistake to give birth to even one child since the world is doomed, everything is oh-so-horrible, and the future is grim.

The reason I joined was I thought people would give suggestions on activities with an only child, and make me feel like less of a loser for not having more kids. I was hoping for things along the lines of, “I have one child, and it’s great, look at this fun activity we did today.” But it’s all doom and gloom. Sheesh.

P.S. I obviously don’t think that people who have one child (or none, or five, or any number) are losers. I think I am for not being healthy enough to get pregnant again.

  1. Play the one-and-doners this song from the 1964 New York World’s Fair. It’ll brighten their outlook.

    1. Okay, screw WordPress! The video in my comment won’t play unless one of your readers is curious enough to copy the URL and paste it into his/her browser address line — and I don’t expect anybody to go to the trouble of doing that.

      The cheerfully optimistic song, from the Walt Disney robotic display at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, is called “There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow Coming at the End of Every Day.” Those words were true in 1964 — and they still are, 54 years later.

        Really?? This is what I almost always do with links. I do not like clicking on something I don’t know.

  2. Lately it seems to be getting harder and harder to find exactly what you’re looking for ANYWHERE online.
    You often end up feeling like you’re the only one who dwells on or notices certain things—like no-one else shares your mindset.
