parenting: the oldest extreme sport

During a past visit to a Monastery, a Monastic and I had a conversation; in the course that conversation (and within the specific context of the topic we were discussing at the time) he shared that if he were not a Monastic that he would probably be doing something extreme. He listed various extreme things; I found it amusing to learn that “have 6 kids” was included in that list of possible extreme things to do….

Parenting is not for the timid.

Congratulations Matthew and Anna!
