I read Robert Avrech's Seraphic Secret today, specifically his latest post, "School."
Reading the post compelled me enough to comment on his site. But I also have to admit that personally I'm suffering from some guilt as a result of reading his post.
Several times, in the heat of my frustration-of-the-moment with my two oldest children (but still quite young!), I've had the audacity to blurt out, "Why don't you just grow up already!?"
And then I look at all three of my children at a different moment and wonder sadly, "How have they grown up so quickly? Where has the time gone?"
