Do you have children? If so how many?

Mine are all grown up and would kill me if I put their ages online for everyone to see. Anyway, two have children of their own, and 3 of the grandchildren have children of their own, making me a mother, grandmother, and great grandmother all rolled up into one. I was also a schoolteacher and still get occasional letters from former students who send me pictures of their children, and even a few grandchildren. I can't imagine a world without children. They are so interesting to watch. The most rewarding thing of all, I think, is when I see them change from the demanding, self-centered baby stage where they want the world to revolve around them, into caring, generous adults who go out of their way to make life better for those around them. That's when I think parents,(and grandparents), can really decide whether or not they have performed their job well.
