The parent hood

Hey y'all.

First of all, shadows.  That's basically a note to self.  That's a post I intend to write but I started getting groggy tonight.

I read this poem during some downtime today, and I love it.  I have no idea if raising children is actually boring, not having attempted it myself.  Actually I know second hand it has its ups and downs.  But the poet is onto something.  And while I know not to take it literally, the last line provides a jolt.

Now I know what you meant by the watchword 'shadows'.

I only tried parenting once myself, but I must say the experience was never boring. I liked the sublimely reference.

Yeah, I thought I'd give myself a prompt there.

Hope you found the whole parenting experience satisfactory? That is a good line/couple of lines.
