From Chicken Soup for the Soul Daily Inspirations for Women

February 8

My twin boys were only seven when their paternal grandmother announced she was remarrying. We broke the news to our boys.

Jon looked thoughtful for a while, then finally asked, “Is she going to have more children?”

Before we had a chance to respond, his twin brother Mike shot back this answer: “No! She can’t. She already had them. It’s like chicken pox. Once you get them, you can’t get them again.”
