Follow the Black Feminist link, or check out slate here to see why I may just not have kids 'til I'm thirty or so.
I can hear the Groomes family in the background, going: old eggs... ooooollldddd eggggsss.... In my mother's maternal line, and I don't know why, the older the woman is when the child is born the farther the child is from normal on an intelligence spectrum.
The child is either super and I mean way high IQ, great social skills, mega-talented smart, or no-talking, socially inept slow.
I don't know why but I wish someone would find out before, oh, say, 2011.
