Mothers and Fathers

"What do you do? You're just a housewife and slave, aren't you? A nursemaid to a bunch of kids?" ---"No, I have a fantastic job, a terrific career. I am a curator in a museum --- a museum of memories!"

"You're tied down by a whole family. What a bore! Don't you wish you could get away with the fellows for a real good time?" --- "No, I can't waste my time that way. I'm a collector, you see. I have to spend my time collecting, whenever I'm not tied up in work. I am collecting memories for our family museum!"
-What Is A Family?, Edith Schaeffer
