6. I had some friends who claimed they were "the perfect parents."

And I won't bother relating the discussion that that inspired.

But I later asked a child psychologist friend what the result would be if someone actually were a "perfect parent."

Her reaction, "They would create a carbon copy of themselves."

What sane person could stand that?

Mazel tov to you and your wife. I know you'll figure it (something) out.
