Raising Kids...Do It Anyway
We had a busy filled weekend of family. My husband and I sat on the sofa together, he had his arm around me, enjoying the stillness and a glass of wine. I said, "Do you think the kids will ever appreciate how much we do for them?" He responded, "Well, I hope not yet." I said, "What do you mean?" He explained, "If they realize it now, while they are young, it might scare them, and they would think... I'm not doing all that, I'm not having kids." Interesting perspective, one which I would not want to foster. And so, because we know the love and joy found in family life far outweighs all that effort, we'll just keep plugging along.
