Wonderful post, Angela, because I can completely relate, as I was a camp counselor for various ages for four summers. It was nuts, and a lot of the time, I thought about what fantastic birth control it was. But then one of those kids would need me. Or have an ah-ha moment. Or something else that is incredible to experience. And then I'd think twice.

I hope things are going well in SC for y'all!

Honestly, no one is ever truly ready to be a parent. All the planning and time in the world won't actually get you there. But the amazing moments far outweigh the terrible ones. And afterall who else can you rely on to maintain your roots and pluck stray hairs in your old un-functional age. Consider it an investment. ;-)


Literature is full of immortality schemes and longings. The simple path to immortality is children. The only risk is that your own children may be just as flawed and irritating as you are. May have something to do with genes.

Favorite bumper sticker - "If I had known grandchildren would be so much fun, I would have had them first."
