Didn't you know that people with no children are the best parents?
I think it is gross, but then I don't really like dogs. And my daughter is incredibly allergic to dog saliva, so not only gross, but potentially life threatening.
I am not going to school, but instead doing a really long apprenticeship. I will have my CPM, but no MEAC accredidation. Hmmm...what to do.
