"My mother and I were born and raised in Heraklion (Lakkos). I brought up six children, seventeen grandchildren and eight grand-grandchildren. This neighborhood was full of children, I had six, the neighbor eight...
Why were we having so many children?
Back then we didn't have TV neither "book-book" (meaning facebook). I was hugging with my husband, one touch from me, one touch from him... next thing you know I was pregnant! Well that's pretty much it!"
