Of course you do, Deb, and your comment made me realize that I should have been more clear about the nature of those holidays and with whom. I’ve made that change. Those holidays spent with far more traditional families do indeed break down along those lines, but time spent with mothers who aren’t so traditional are indeed a very different experience.

I did try to address the broader spectrum of having kids and a radical life as well, but your comment is spot on. Thanks for the insight. My statement was too broad.
