Miranda holding Paulo (and needing a few tips on holding up baby's head!)

Miranda holding Paulo (and needing a few tips on holding up baby's head!) decked out in their Easter best.

I had to ask Jamee something the other day (I know, I know! she’s on maternity leave…but I can’t help it!), and of course she made some time for me. She also gave me this gem of an email reply when I asked her how things are going with her new baby boy:

“He’s asleep right now, and I’m trying to pay bills and clean up my inbox. My eyes keep closing. But, to answer your question about how I’m adjusting, I didn’t think I’d be so in love with another child. I was hoping for a girl (because Miranda wanted a girl), but now I can’t imagine not having a little boy. Even Miranda is in love with him. She’s decided to keep him after all. She’s just checked on him twice in the last 3 minutes. So cute! He is adorable, and I just love holding him, and smelling him, and looking at him, and am in amazement at how beautiful he is.”

This reminds me, yet again, of how much a mom’s love, patience, nurturing, concern and care has the power to rule/change the world. It also leaves me in complete awe (not to mention a few tears) and inspires me to say: To all you hard-working and loving moms, dads and grandparents out there, I sincerely thank you, because you are raising the generation of people who’ll be running the world, making decisions (big and small) and taking care of my generation of peeps! Your strength, kindness, love and thoughtful guidance in raising healthy and emotionally strong children benefit ALL of us. Thank you.
