I Would Like a Time-Turner

Hm. Some parts of this resonated with me, other parts didn’t. I think for me, the conflict is mostly about time and labor, not any sense that being a mother makes me less interesting as a writer. And I’ve definitely handed over a lot more of the labor to Kevin than she has to her husband, and I have no regrets that he’s the one dealing with all the school e-mails and reminders.

Her kids are much younger than mine, so that’s part of the different perspective, of course, but mostly, she seems to angst about a lot of things that I don’t really angst about?

I would like a time-turner, though. If I could have one wish, I think that would be it.
