I have never seen/ heard this quote ever before and after watching "How I Met Your Mother" this week I have heard it on the show, seen a FB status quoting it and it just popped up on pinterest. I think someone is trying to tell me something.
Although Edna's husband along with society wants her to be wife who cares for the children and stays at home to cook and clean, she made the conscious decision to not live this type of lifestyle. "He reproached his wife with her inattention, her habitual neglect of the children. If it was not a mother's place to look after children, whose on earth was it?" (III, p.7)
