Okay. I'm confused. How come the fact that I can't keep my kitchen clean means I shouldn't own a house, but I should adopt a child?

Does this make any sense at all?

IIRC, condos still have group decisions on building maintainence and the like? Homeowners have to do their own thing there, generally.

But kid-parents also have to periodically maintain the kid. Who reminds them?

You can see why I'm confused here.

Perhaps she's under the impression that children who are of age to be adopted are also self-maintaining, or will provide their own reminders about maintainence? But that does not include doctor checkups and dental checkups, which are analogous to the checking that termites etc. have not overwhelmed the foundations.

No, she understands we want a baby. And she knows kids better than that - she raised three of her own (and one was adopted, although my sister-in-law was twelve at the time, and the daughter of her husband.)
