Conversation while feeding Reuben and Joshua the other night.
Gareth: You know, in many ways having children is like having a dishwasher.
Jane: Really?! How?
Gareth: Well, you know … you don’t actually need one but life feels somehow … better … with one.
Jane: Yeah, but the main difference is that a dishwasher makes your life easier.
Gareth: I suppose so. And you don’t fill your children with tablets and salt.
Jane: … or dishes!
Gareth: So … erm, in conclusion children aren’t like dishwashers, are they?
Jane: No, not really.
