Danielle Steel has nine children.
How did she make it as an author and have any children at all?
Was she just a crappier mother than I am? (Probably not. She does everything well.)
Did she not work out? (Unlikely. She looks fantastic.)
Was it easier before the interruptions of technology? (Maybe. But before technology, lots of things were harder, too. Imagine booking a Christmas vacation before technology for a family of eleven.)
Once again, Danielle, I am in awe.
