Vonnegut on parenting.

by Kristen DeLap


Okay, so I don't think Vonnegut was talking about parenting specifically (though he raised seven children) but to me it wholly encompasses the attitude one should take. With a three year old and a new infant under my roof, if one doesn't stop to appreciate the good times, there is very little break in the energy-drain that is rearing children. But those happy moments, however fleeting, are the ones to acknowledge - if not to others, at least to yourself.
