“We have one.”

“We have one.  I am teaching myself to say this.  Not, ‘We just have one child,’ but ‘We have one child.’  We wanted to have more, and it isn’t by choice that we are a family of three.  But if I use the word ‘just’, then it sounds like one isn’t enough.  And I don’t ever want my son to think he wasn’t enough.  So, I’m teaching myself to say it differently:  We have one child.”

We found each other at neighboring tables at the McDonald’s playland on a day when it was roughly 144 degrees outside.

My two played with her one, and we shared what we know about being content with what you have, knowing that yes, this is enough.

For today, this is enough.
