My work wife and her husband welcomed their sweet baby girl into the world yesterday. While I do not have a maternal bone in my body right now, it brings me so much joy and pleasure to see her thrive as she starts her journey in motherhood.
It takes real courage to be a parent. To provide love and safety to such a tiny human being who solely relies on you, is beyond me. That courage takes a certain type of person who has fully accepted the fact that they are ready to share that special love. Watching my work wife bond with her baby girl was awe-inspiring. She was made to be a mother, which is good considering she told me that her biological clock was ticking when we first started working together (and she’s two years younger than me).
“All those cliches, those things you hear about having a baby and motherhood – all of them are true. And all of them are the most beautiful things you will ever experience.”
Without fail, I’ve already received the comments and you know what I’m talking about.
“You look like such a natural!”
“When are you and David going to have a baby?”
“Look at that smile! You could have that all the time with one of your own.”
Let’s be real here, I’m lucky that my dogs are still alive and kicking. Minimal care is my kind of deal. Where’s my bottle of wine?
**You don’t get any picture of the princess on my blog. I’m not ready to make her blog famous just yet.
