People are so stupid. DH's aunt was watching my daughter play with her cousin, who is only a few months older than her, and said "They play so well together! You should have another one!" I wanted to say "You do realize that if I had another child now, they'd be years apart, rather than months, right? But if you insist, I'll be happy to have another, as long as you're willing to pay the $10K it costs to try. Did you bring your checkbook?"
