Endless Love by Diana Ross and Lionel Richie was #1 the day I was born. It was one of the biggest hits of that year as well. I myself have never actually heard it before.

I usually don't reply to my own posts, but her is a PRIME example of the above:

(Whilst cleaning my daughter's play area)

Wife: "Svanni....what is this?"
Daughter: "Oh, that's for my boy Barbie--it's a harness she puts on her husband for getting married"
(Only then did I realize it was a cummerbund for her Ken doll)

As a father, should I be overly concerned--or somewhat relieved?
