I was a bit too tired to write yesterday. The important work I referred to was taking care of Ivana's kids for the day. It was a blast :-)
As a general rule I don't like kids, but as a general rule people don't raise their kids well. Ivana's children defy the former generality because she defies the latter. She's a damn good mom and as a result has remarkable children.
