Anyone feeling sentimental enough to write a little something for all of our forthcoming little ones? I'm 41 weeks today and suddenly in the mood for sweet, soothing words of expectation. Here's something I wrote this morning, and if any of you have writing to share, I'd love love love it:
Will you show up late at night,
In afternoon, or morning?
Will you creep up gradually
Or burst out with no warning?
You, a little mystery
Preparing to unfold.
A long-awaited winter flower
Blooming in the cold.
Best wishes to all of you, meanwhile, and thanks for keeping me (all of us) busy with your thoughtful conversation and birth stories.
Mindy, mom to Harriet (b. 10/12/06) and Baby No. 2 (due 12/27/09)
