Another documented ‘Thoughts From Years Past’ that reflects what was going on in my life at a particular time. My post ‘I want to write a book’ describes my desire to write a book and several times in the past started this process, without proceeding very far. In my post ‘Thoughts From Years Past.15’, I ended with ‘After several days, mom and baby were doing well and it was time to go home.’
The following documentation is a continuation of those pages.
Thoughts I wrote from September, 2004 – (unedited from original writing)
My second son was born in 1984 on Valentine’s Day. He was a big baby, weighing in at 9 lbs. & 12 ½ oz. He was born without incident, coming into the world as the first did, by C-section. He was a big bundle of joy and was an exciting addition to the family. His big brother was only 21 months at the time and was so cute with his bleach blond hair. I remember him holding his younger brother in his arms and wanting to take care of him. I have two boys now and with them came additional responsibilities and stress. Two months after he was born, mom got pregnant again. Wow, not necessarily good timing as the two we had required much attention to take care of. But within two months a miscarriage took place and we viewed it as a blessing in disguise. We just were not ready for another baby.
