The other day someone asked me if I was reading any child development books in preparation for the birth of my child. I, without really thinking, said, "Well, I've been reading this great book on Catherine the Great, and because I'm slightly ADD when it comes to reading, I've also started a fascinating biography on Hitler."
In retrospect I should have said no.
What? I'm preparing for the worst case scenarios. Who wants a child that pulls the entire world into a war and murders millions? I would say I'm being a great mom.
