The Times – China steps back from one child policy

“We advocate eligible couples to have two kids because it can help to reduce the proportion of the ageing people and alleviate a workforce shortage in the future,” said Xie Linli, the director of the Shanghai Population and Family Planning Commission.

Well, I dunno about having a second baby quite yet, but all things considered (even the awful, crazy week we had last week, the fact that we’ve got the results of a couple dozen blood tests to still hear about (tests that probably any kid could have but only we actually did have so don’t get to live in blissful ignorance about), and the fact that this very moment Peter is carefully combing out more bits of EEG glue from her hair), I’m awfully glad to have had the one.

Two weeks off. Not a bad maternity leave, eh?

Thanks, guys.
