The Price of Children
Ronald Lauderbach


Ronald Lauderbach says he writes poetry to celebrate life and because he likes to play with language. A retired high school English and journalism teacher (he also coached Pony League, for 12- and 13-year-olds), he tries to follow the advice he gave his students: “If you write poetry that moves you, it will move others.” Ron lives in San Diego, California.

Perfection. Captures both the sweetness & the sometimes heart-wrenching challenges of being a parent.

There was a large increase between the costs of our first child and our tenth.

I love this wise funny poem and how it shows how children don't miss a thing. The punch line was perfect.
