Baby Thoughts from Andrew Solomon

far from the treeA quote from Far From the Tree I thought I’d share:

“There is no such thing as reproduction. When two people decide to have a baby, they engage in an act of production, and the widespread use of the word reproduction for this activity, with its implication that two people are but braiding themselves together, is at best a euphemism to comfort prospective parents before they get in over their heads”

I guess I should have read this book before my wife and I had our two kids!
