I Have to Pay Off My First Child Before I Can Have Another
Lindsay King-Miller

I feel this. My parents conceived me the old fashioned way, but stopped at one because they knew they wanted to send me to private school. They couldn’t afford to have another kid the way they wanted to raise me in a city with shit public schools. That turned out to be a fraught decision in its own right that ended with me dropping out of high school, but there you have it. Kids a’int cheap, and this was the 90s when the economy was booming and my dad got a tenure track job right out of a PhD program. Things DEFINITELY aren’t that way now.
