The list can go on and on. You may be an empty-nester, possibly retired, and you no longer need the four-bedroom, three-bath house any more.

Studies show that the time of year that produces the most babies is summer, with August leading the way. I’m no expert, but I disagree with them. I believe the most prolific time for babies is the Christmas season. Babies appear everywhere: stores, malls, plazas, family rooms, schools, bars — you name it. They range from life-size to miniature, paper to plastic to cloth to ceramic, incandescent to inflatable. Some of these babies are brand-new, while some are hundreds of years old. All of them have the same parents, the same bed, and the same name.
