there is never enough time to stare.

A friend told me that the permanence of parenthood scared her. You get to choose your spouse but not your kids. How can I explain that loving these two has been the easiest thing I have ever done? It's not unlike loving yourself. It just comes. Even when he's fussy. Even when they are sick and smelly and feverish. It just comes. I delight in them. The work of motherhood is hard but the motivation, the love, that part is easy.
