My readers, all ten, should go to this article and debate it.

I picked that up through Joanne Jacobs.

I don't much disagree with many of the solutions, for the poor or disabled. I don't like the premise:
Life happened. We became mothers.
Life didn't "happen" to me. I came into maturity in the '70's when birth control was freely available. I have more reasons than I have mentioned here to not have children. A middle-class woman of the '80's elected to have a child.

Honestly, do these mothers have no memories?

UPDATE: Let me make myself clear. I don't see where it's my responsibility to subsidize your day care, honey, so you can "optimize" yourself. You're a writer for Newsweek.

I'm fit to be tied.
