There are many reasons why people have kids. As I grow older, trying to raise my kids to the best of my ability, I am becoming more convinced that in turn they are my guide into adulthood as much as I am their guide into childhood. They make me be a better person. They are capable of giving the best words of wisdom, true, unfiltered, raw words that you can't always get from adults. I appreciate them and I hope they stay like this for a long time.
