This Saturday, Alex and I took the boys to Coney Island. Anton and I went on the hot air balloon ride, which spun us in circles. Then Toby miraculously got to sit in the front car on the kiddie roller coaster! The afternoon made me think of this quote by Gabriel García Márquez:
“A mother discovers with great delight that one does not love one’s children just because they are one’s children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.”
So true, don’t you agree?
