Picture A year ago tonight I made my kid go to bed, election returns only beginning to come in, because we live on the west coast and small humans cannot stay up until the end when there is school in the morning. "Wake me when Hillary wins," she said, and I promised to do so, so when I came in the next morning, she was pissed. And when I told her why, pissed wasn't the half of it. Like so, so many of...

“You can’t tell people what to be, I’m afraid,” said Rosie. “You can only love and support who they already are.”
Laurie Frankel, This is How It Always Is

“I wish for my child, for all our children, a world where they can be who they are and become their most loved, blessed, appreciated selves.”
Laurie Frankel, This is How It Always Is

“This is how it always is. You have to make these huge decision on behalf of your kid, this tiny human whose fate and future is entirely in your hands. Who trusts you to know what's good and right and then to be able to make that happen. You never have enough information. You don't get to see the future. And if you screw up - if with your incomplete contradictory information you make the wrong call - nothing less than your child's entire future and happiness is at stake. It's impossible. It's heartbreaking. It's maddening. But there's no alternative."

"Sure there is," she said.

"What?"

"Birth control.”
Laurie Frankel, This is How It Always Is
