I was asked at choir on Sunday “So, how many kids do you have now?” I like this man but I wasn’t going to play his game so I said three and he asked me the ages and so I told Julia and Lauren and then brought up Nathan, which he already knew, and he made some comment about having the two kids now. Like I said, I knew that is where he was going with it the whole time but I just don’t subscribe to that policy. I have three children. Only two of them are here with me, but I will always have three kids. End of discussion!
I have to say I hold no ill-will towards him. I cannot expect him to understand, but I also will not fit neatly into someone else’s view of things.
