megan posed an interesting question on facebook today: if you have a choice of no kids or 6 kids, no in between, with unlimited resources, which would you choose?
54 months (4.5 years) pregnant.
if you have each kid two years apart, that’s at least 12 years of children under 2 years old.
if you have them bam bam bam right after one another, that’s at least 7 years of kids under 2. (unless you’re lucky and have some multiples in there.)
at the same time, given unlimited resources, you could hire a nanny to raise them for you and not have to deal with them at all unless you want to. but what’s the point of having them if you’re going to let someone else raise them?
i guess i’d rather have none and sleep. and use those unlimited resources to travel!
i think it would be more telling to have people choose between 1 or 2 and 10.
