Reality

I'm going to have a baby in less than four months. Me, of all people. A baby. And by "have a baby," I don't mean deliver one. I mean I'm going to have one. A whole baby. To take care of. It won't survive without me to take care of it. The reality of the responsibility is overwhelming.

Just wait till that first night at home with just you Bobby and the baby. Mike and I were ready to hire the Regina, the nurse from the NICU that took care of Tommy, to come and live with us. but don't worry you figure it out. Although I am still trying to get my head around the fact that he is mine, forever.

After delivery it didn't seem real and it took a few times of holding Chad, smelling the newborn baby smell(it's not the artificial Baby Magic smell either), That I realized that,yes, I was a Mom to this little one. That protective mother hen syndrome took over. That is why Jon quit smoking.

I always felt awe when I stared at both of my sons as new borns. A clean slate, I can make their lives so good, I can show them so much, I can help them to become wonderful people.
