i’ve had a lot of conversations about kids and having kids lately with lots of different people from different places, parents and hopefully future parents, so I thought I’d share this one in english …
despite of all the hardships, the crazy nights, the spaghetti nerves (thx @fraucolle for coining that phrase), the exhaustion, the tears, the fears, the desperation, the pains, the patience that always seems to be running out, the sorrows, the doubts, the struggles, … , the ends of the lines:
children do you good. they heal your soul and ground it. they make you laugh when you least expect it and desperately need it and are your person(s). YOUR very own little persons.
there, now try and wrap your head around this. i often can’t, since it’s too big and good to be true. but it is. cheesy, i know, but who cares. ❤️
