In the car a few days ago, my darling daughters and I somehow got in to a conversation about whether or not they planned to have children.
Number One said that she does not plan to have children. Of course I was compelled to ask her what has led to this decision. The reason she plans to lead a childless life is because she hopes to have a farm with lots of animals, and taking care of a lot of animals will take up most of her time.
However, she may at some point decide to adopt a child. One who is about 10 years old.
Why? Because then the kid is old enough to help out.
I decided it was time to change the subject.
