OK. Before you put on your riding knickers and climb on your high horse, hear me out. I love my kids so, so much. They are probably the best thing I've ever made (besides the three art pieces I did while I was living in Budapest) and I'm so proud of myself for getting them this far. I mean, I have managed to keep two human beings alive for 5+ years. That, in and of itself, is something to celebrate. But sometimes, just sometimes, I worry that I have inadvertently raised a little sociopath.
Or is this developmentally appropriate? Do all little kids temporarily become assholes when they turn five or suddenly get a younger sibling who starts competing for resources? Maybe I'm just worrying as much as any other parent worries about their children and their emotional and psychological well-being. Either way, I'm going to chalk it up to fate. I'm sure he'll turn out to be an emotionally and psychologically healthy individual. I hope.
