When my daughter was 6 year old, myself and my husband decided that I should have my tubes tied because we had 7 children, our daughter the youngest.
On the day of the surgery, my husband took our daughter to school. The next day the teacher said "How are you feeling, Mrs. Plante? Joy told me you had surgery." I was just about to say "Great", when my daughter came running up to us and said "My dad said she is going to be okay because she just got spayed!"
