Having two kids, I’ve heard people say, means now we’re a ‘real’ family…
Of course, it’s silly to think there is a limited definition to ‘real family.’ Two parents and a child felt pretty real, but so did being a couple before that. And I’m pretty sure it’s just the same whether it’s one parent with three kids, or two moms with one kid, or… etc, etc.
But, alas, we grew up reading story books making it so.
So here I am feeling a little bit like the Berenstein Bears (before the book where Mama has little Sister).
