Children in a small house
I live in a small Cape (1580 SQ feet) with my husband and two small boys, age 5 and 19 months. All of my older son's playmates live in large (new) homes with plenty of room to spread out. I, myself, grew up in a very large, old farmhouse. I loved that farmhouse, but as I have gotten older I have come to appreciate little houses. They just feel more comfortable and approachable to me.
My question is this: am I being selfish in choosing to remain in my small house just because I love it? Should I trade it in for a house with more room for my boys? Has anyone else in this forum made the decision to stay small with children and how has that worked out for them?
