It's worth it

For Father's Day, the thoughts of a stay-at-home mom.
All the financial sacrifice, the difficulty of swimming against the cultural tide, the abject boredom that comes with reading the same book for the thousandth time, the worries about what politician might next try to interrupt our unusual lifestyle with new rules and regulations designed to make chaos of our plans–all of that is just noise. This–these little people sitting around my table, learning to love learning–this is peace.
And I think it’s going to be worth it. Yes, I think it is.
