shoulda coulda

i think before becoming a parent
you should have to shadow a single mother of at least three children
for a year
even if you think your relationship is rock solid
even if you think you will only have one child
before you become a parent
you should have to shadow a single mom
of at least three children
for a full year.

struggling with my momming as usual. this was a thought i had–wishing i had had a bit more of a warning before spawning. but i probably would not have listened if i had had that warning.
however, shadowing a single mom of a small herd would maybe have been enough to make me think twice.
ps. i love my kids.

    1. ha! there are still some diehards who would be all, “no, it will be different for me.” i used to live in a co-op in a campus area. i felt like, walking amid all those college students with my hoarde, that i should have a t-shirt on saying, “use a condom.”
