I was most definitely there for the birth of one. 10 pounds 3 ounces of personhood that needed out.
As I am often heard to remark, I was inner uterine during the birth of the other. Now you have it. I married an older man. MOMD is approximately 3 weeks my senior.
These two share many attributes. Hard working, family loving, kind. Bad puns, YouTube sharing, hearty laugh. Blue eyes. Compassionate, determined. Music lovers!
Neither like to be bossed around. Both prefer to work alone. One was a long distance truck driver, confined in his cab, mile after solitary mile.
The other now works in a welding booth. No fanfare or accolades needed for either. Work hard, give it all they’ve got, go home. Give some more.
Happy Birthday to two of the best gifts I’ve ever received.
The world is a better place because of your presence.
