There was a picnic last week for a couple who was about to get married. We missed it, but we asked our single 40-something guy friend how it was. His reply:

"It was great! People holding babies...It was nice."

So, the one thing that stood out in his mind about this social event was that there were people there holding babies.

The following week the couple mentioned above got married. Today I got an email from a friend who also sent the email to two other married couples. She said:

"It was great to see you all there with children!"

She knows darn well that we don't have kids and aren't planning on having them. Hmph.

There were lots of kids at this wedding. One friend had her husband drive around for an hour with the kids in the van because one of them was napping and they didn't want to wake him. This is after driving an hour and a half to get to the wedding. Is it so hard to get a babysitter?

Wondering why being seen with children is so wonderful.
