On the Verge

I am sitting here on the verge of parenthood. In just a few short weeks (more or less) a never before seen human will appear and all of a sudden (I am told) life as I know it will be forever altered. This is big. I know, I am not nearly the first or only person to experience this. But it is the first time I have experienced it. The swelling belly, the tiny movements that belong to someone else within my skin, the "hosting" of a separate being. I have spent hours and hours with children of many ages, but this is something different. I have a host of knowledge about many child-centered topics, yet question marks seem to dot my every thought like buzzing bees in my head. I think what I am saying here is: I know nothing and will only begin to learn through the eyes of my child. So, ideas about bilingual children, organic gardening, or meditation mondays aside for the moment, the journey and the adventure are just beginning.

  1. Seeing life through the eyes of a child is the most amazing experience. So present moment beautiful . Incredibly rewarding and humbling. I can't wait to partake in your sharing journey. :)

  2. Peggy, you have been preparing for your little ones birth for so long and with such determination that you will be better prepared than most for your pending parenthood. That day normally arrives to individuals who have no clue to what's about to happen. Most survive in spite of it. You, on the other hand, are a natural and will make an amazing mom. Along with all that prep, my little grandson has it made. Let the awe begin.
