Response to Uranus Needs Men (Reply #11)

17. I'm finding your posts kind of amusing

 

it just so happens my son just moved back in with me because I had a serious accident. I didn't ask him to. I didn't expect it, but there you go. Here's the thing though- of course I had my kid for "selfish" reasons. I wanted to experience having a child and being a parent. And let me hazard a guess here; most people have children for much the same reasons. There is NO "unselfish" reason for having kids.

Having said all that, my kid told me that he moved back to help me out because... he loves me. And he loves me because I've always loved him unconditionally and I've always supported him in whatever he wanted to do. People who love each other do for each other. It's simple stuff. And that my tough, super independent 25 year old ski bum son moved across the country to help me out, blows me away. I wouldn't have missed knowing him for the world. I'm glad I was selfish and had a kid.
