My kids are perfect. They whine, they complain, they get out of doing chores. They laugh, they run, they tickle. They scream, they shout, they whisper. They do their homework. Or not. They work hard to learn. To grow. They read. They play computer games. They watch funny cat videos on You Tube. They go to school. They go to bed. They go to the beach with mom and dad. Everything they will ever be, is already in them waiting to get out. The world is waiting for these children to grow up. To be world leaders. Or teachers. Or scientists. Or moms and dads. They will work hard to learn and grow. They will be straight. Or gay. They will have lovers, and if they’re lucky, a loving spouse. They will cry. They will get angry with the status quo. They will laugh. They will run. They will tickle. They will scream, shout and whisper. My kids are perfect.
