They Keep Me Humble

Never let anyone try to convince you that having children will be a boost to your ego. I mean, they will sometimes--like when they're two and they love you more than anyone else in the world and they tell you that they love you so much they want to marry you. But as they get older, they lose that sense of you being their superhero and what you get are lines like this one, taken from a "rambling autobiography" one of my children wrote for English class:

"I like to be with my family as long as we aren't in public."

Can you feel the love?

I'm thinking of having a t-shirt printed up that says this. I figure between teenagers who feel this way and mothers who have children that act in public as if they were raised by feral goats I could make a mint.

Not that I know anything about children who behave in public as if they were raised by feral goats.
