Children have a lot of chores!

 I am getting asked by a lot of Ugandans, "how many kids have you produced?" When I answer that I have not had kids they are shocked. My go to response is that kids are a lot of work but their reply is always, "you don't work for kids, they work for you!" And it is true, kids in Uganda work hard.  As soon as they can walk they begin to get their own water, wash their own clothes, cook the food, work in the garden, sweep the floors, and clean themselves (this includes cutting their own fingernails using a razorblade starting at 2 years old...yikes!)
