Why’d you even have kids Mom? My son asked.

I gave him a cliche, but still honest reply. Because I’ve always loved kids…and I love the idea of life growing inside of me, then watching it continue... Plus parenting has been good for my writing, I laughed. (My kids tease me for writing poetry daily, on Twitter.)
