What You Learned When You Had Kids

Seems impossible
to divide love in half
but you learn
about the vastness
of your capacity for love
When you give it all to one
then turn around
and give the entirety again
endlessly
Here
drink from my cup
it may not be running over
but it’s always half full

  3. This is so true. Hard to explain to the kids themselves though and it has to be experienced to be believed.

  4. Yes, that's true too. My experience was that I had to have a second child in order to learn this :)
