According to medicine, you are three days late. Some say you’re being stubborn, but I confess I feel proud that you’re already bucking the expectations of the establishment and you haven’t even left the womb! Don’t let the man tell you when to be born, you tell the man!
Looking at it from your perspective, I doubt you’re any more eager to experience birth than I am. I mean, even an infant can see that the physics involved are not in either of our favors.
I say to myself I won’t miss these aching hips but something tells me that one day I’ll look back and remember the feeling of your tiny feet against my ribs with a pang of sadness that we’ll never again be as we are now.
As you near the end of your journey into this world, I carry our two souls together knowing it will only be for a precious little longer. This can be a sad and scary place, but there is so much to love, I’ve always found even the hardest times to be worth it.
Whenever you decide it’s time, your dad and I are here to welcome you with open arms, five furry siblings, and a very small pair of cowgirl boots. : )
