“Children are God’s little miracles” is what my mom said to me one day while we were out shopping. She was on one of her “when are you going to give me a grandchild?” rants when a couple strolled by with their two young children. “It is not that I do not want children, I just do not want them now,” I told her. That conversation happened at the beginning of this year and now here we are about to begin a new year and I have a five year old. “How is that possible?” you may ask, I will explain as the story continues. I am more suited to parenting than I once thought even though it is a demanding jobofmakingsure he is safe, has all the things he needs, andthat he is gaining a quality education.
