The Birth of a New Baby

I am not sure why twelves years has erased the incredible memory of giving birth…perhaps it’s like my grandmother always said, “Childbirth is the hardest pain to endure but the easiest to forget” but last week I was able to enjoy childbirth without the pain. Before you start sending electronic emails of congratulations let me explain that it was the birth of my newest neice, Cora. My brother and his wife were nice enough to let me attend the miraculous event and when it was all over, I was amazed at how incredible it was even though I’ve been through it twice and watched it once before. Having a baby is truly a miracle and I think as busy moms we often forget just what a miracle it is. First, you have to have manage to have microscopic elements align at the exact right time to conceive, you have to stay healthy for ten months, you have to squeeze a 10 pound baby through a tiny hole or endure having eleven layers of muscle cut and you have to be open minded enough to think you can mold a new life into a good adult. Childbirth is indeed a miracle however we get so busy with creating dinner solutions that can be eaten in the car and coming up with science fair project ideas that will pass the teacher’s criteria that we forget how it began. So today celebrate the birth of your children even if it’s not their birthday by remembering what a miracle it all is.
