When it comes down to paying for college...I am only have one to worry about.

I only have one child to run around to various activities.

I can focus solely on my daughter.

If I choose to spoil my kiddo.....I can.

I don't have to listen to her argue with siblings.

I don't have to worry about always being fair

She is my favorite...and thats okay..

 

Feel free to add yours.

All of those!

Also it is easier when we go on vacation

our finances are not as tight! and if we get paid more, it won't be stretched as thin, it's extra money!

daycare costs are lower. school costs are lower.

I am sending my child to a private school, since the tuition is affordable for one (but definitely not more than 1)

less money for groceries! and better meals to be made, because I can get ingredients that arent as processed.

it may sound like money money money but that really is a huge factor for us. my husband is special ops and I would absolutely die if i had to take care of more than 1 while he is deployed. I've been through a year-long with my only one, and it SUCKED!!!!

No sibling rivalry

More time and energy to devote to that child

More money for that child

Lately I have been thankful for my only child because grocery shopping is not *too* difficult, he will only get older and a little more easier too.

I have also had more time to try teaching him new things, we are working on sign language...private lessons are not completely out of reach, but they would be if I had more than one

When he outgrows clothes, they don't sit in the closet waiting for "the next one". I donate them right away, and someone can use them right away :) same with toys and all the big stuff like bouncer, bassinett, etc
