They bend and warp you
Children, arrested Development, and mirrored pasts
Gabrielle Hermann

Children, they bend and warp you . . . into someone wonderful.

They turn all that time we would have spent doing something frivolous and selfish and convert it into time . . . swinging on the swings in the park, watching the clouds blow by, playing with worms, smelling the flowers, sitting in a 6" plastic pool, making sock puppets, planting radishes . . .
