Some of us have c-sections
and some of us labor.
Some of us do not have epidurals
and some of us do.
Some of us give birth
and some of us become parents in other ways.
Some of us put together nurseries
and some of us make room for our babies in our beds.
Some of us bottle feed and
some of us breast feed.
Some of us sleep train
and some of us are sleep trained.
Some of us go to work to provide
and some of us stay home to provide.
Some of us use cloth diapers
and some of us use disposables.
Some of us make up our minds
only to have them changed by experience.
And some of us make up our minds
only to have them changed by circumstance.
Some of us do a little bit of all these things.
Others across the world do very few.
Yet, even with the varied paths we take,
we are the same–
Bonded across oceans of difference
by our incomparable love
for our children.
