    I wouldn’t take anything in the world for mine, but I wouldn’t give a plugged nickle for another pregnancy at this time.

    “Where does that baby get her red hair?”
    Recessive gene. Same place her Aunt Val (Joan’s sister) got her red hair. (Of course, Wally prob. has a recessive red-hair or blond gene, too, for this to happen.)

    You take what life gives you. Kids early, or kids late……..

    . . . and you might have to rear (or help rear) grandkids or great-grandkids. It happens. (See “Grand Avenue.”)

    Being the first child of older parents, I wanted to have ours earlier. My 2 cents – at least have your first before you are 20. Now that I am a grandparent, I see how this works in spades – we get the grandchildren on a regular basis, I couldn’t imagine watching babies in another 10-15 years.

    Reminds me of the time I almost dozed off during an English class when I had a cold; the teacher nudged me and I was SO embarrassed that I wanted to sink into the floor.

    Well her aunt has red hair, so the genes are in the family. Who knows what color grandma’s was.

    At that age every two hours is good. On and off.

    Red hair is usually not active but recessive.
