Dunno...I don't really have that issue. Er, I'm also missing that aforementioned forgetfulness hormone. Honestly, I had my son because I have to watch other people to figure out what to do on most things (that's my autistic wiring), and it's what I was expected to do. I had my daughter, because I always swore that no kid of mine would be an only child. If I had known more about my autism, and my motivations -- not to mention the possibility of passing my faulty wiring onto them -- I would have seriously reconsidered taking the risk. Fortunately, they are both neurotypical.
