...The more I cared for my daughter, the more deeply I fell in love with her. The more I created amazing meals, the more I enjoyed cooking. The better I made our hip little apartment look, the more I appreciated--dare I say the word?--housekeeping! Despite my Ivy League education and my high-powered work experience, I was becoming the very thing I had once disparaged: a homemaker! And I had never been happier.

Then it dawned on me: if one child could create so much joy, what could two children do? My husband, who had fallen in love with our little girl too, and who was a major beneficiary of my discovering the lost arts of homemaking, agreed to test the hypothesis. We discovered that the joy to child ratio varied not geometrically but logarithmically!

Of course, to validate our test results we needed to repeat the experiment, so in the space of just three years we had three children. And while moving from "man-to-man" to a zone defense required adjustments, the test results were the same: more kids = more happiness.

My husband and I are the "all-in" types. We don't do things half-heartedly and we don't phone it in. What does a couple wired this way do with the test data I've described? We pulled the goalie for good. That was it. Bring them babies on!

And did they ever come! For over twenty years straight I was pregnant, nursing, or both. We received ten children in the course of two decades, two girls and eight boys. And we are a Strong Happy Family.
