Me, writer with kids

This is what having kids is almost never like.

The money quote: “I may be blaspheming the Holy Writ of The American Church Of All-Consuming Parenthood but I’m going to say it anyway: I’d be a better writer without kids. But so what. I only learned what love was when I held that little baloney loaf for the first time. Love is nothing if not sacrifice. No words I’ll ever scribble will hold a torch to that.”

The rest is over at Cari’s Luna’s place.  She did me a solid and interviewed me about being a writer, with kids. Have a read, leave a comment.
