I May Be Crazy...

... or at least most people would think so. At an age when most men and women are enjoying an empty nest and the freedom that goes with it, I have a new baby and find myself wanting to enjoy this experience yet again.

It is not unusual to have the term "miraculous" attached to what is really a normal event: birth. This could conceivably be an argument for the innate knowledge we have of God's existence and the fact that all babies are made by Him with us as the normal and usual means.

To have a baby when you are young feels miraculous when you think of how this complicated and wonderful being came into existence from the joining together of microscopic cells. It feels even more miraculous when the body that produced this fresh and perfectly formed little being happens to have endured a lot of wear and tear and shows it.

I don't know if it will happen, but a Baker's Dozen wouldn't be a bad thing for this mom.

Are you serious?????

Are you hinting that you're pregnant again???? Remember, sweet little babies grow up to be teenagers. How many teenagers can you handle at one time???

James is only five weeks old, Mom! I'm still not back in circulation. ;o)

I know they become teenagers, but man, they are so darn sweet when they are little. And by the time I get to James' teen years I'll have a lot of experience. Plus, I would like to be able to say that I was able to get family allowance and old age pension at the same time. heheh
