I have long been fascinated by larger families. Now, I suppose, I officially have one myself! I spent some time this fall reporting an essay on parenting and larger families in an era of declining fertility rates. The piece ran in the New York Times yesterday.
Please give it a read! My favorite part is probably the accompanying photo of my husband helping our 4-year-old brush his teeth. My 8-year-old daughter was incensed that you can only see the back of her head in the school bus shot. Oh well!
In other news: My Forge column this week covers the question of whether you have to become a morning person to fit in regular exercise.
