Well, as some of you may remember a while ago Alex and I decided to try our hand at "inside gardening" by growing our own Bonsai. We'd heard in order to know if you're ready for kids, first grow and keep alive a plant, then move on to an animal and if you can successfully keep those in good shape you're ready. Well..... after much nourishment and encouragement - when we remembered, and the occasional wattering - our bonsai never even came out of the dirt and we ended up throwing it away. So if that says anything about us having kids, it'll be a LONG time before we tackle that challenge ;)
It was fun while witlasted, but maybe our next plant shouldn't be kept on a windowsill that we often forget about.
