Today is Man-child's Fourteenth Birthday. WOW!!! Hallelujah!!!
I Remember.... going to the Inner Harbor everyday for lunch and having 1/2 lbs of steamed Shrimp with cole slaw and prune juice (Never had morning sickness) with his godmom, Paulette, who gained 20 lbs. (BTW, I gained 75 lbs and never regretted it)
I Remember...My MOM spoiling me with Steak every evening for dinner
I Remember... when my water broke - I had to have a tuna sandwich.
I Remember...breaking the rail on the hospital bed, because I was determined not to scream and yell so I just beat the crap out of the bed.
I Remember... my Aunt, Annette, arriving and playing the ocean water tape to relax me but it actually drove me crazy
I Remember ... after 22 hrs, begging for the epidural - and being scared
I Remember...having the c-section performed- and being scared
I Remember....when the Doctor placed him on my chest and he immediately began to nurse
I Remember... in the recovery room, Barry White's song "My First, My Last, My Everything" was playing on the radio and thinking "He is Soooo Right"
I Remember... crying - from being so overwhelmed with joy and Love - that I could not stop
I Remember... promising to raise him to be a God Fearing, Honest, Responsible, and Loving Man.
Happy Birthday to Brandon Geoffrey Bronson!!! Love ya more than words can express :-)
