Is 2 Years Old Too Early To Be Thinking About Childbirth?

  Did you ever meet that girl? You know, the one who had been talking about and planning her wedding before she’d even got a boyfriend?  She’d been imagining her dress since she was 5 years old…And if you dared to mention colour schemes, she’d be able to dive into her wedding box and pull out five different napkins!
