Happy B'day Jesse D

Twenty-four years ago today Carl and I walked into the hospital around noon and three hours later held a perfect 9 lbs 14.5 oz beautiful baby boy in our arms. Being the cool hip people that we considered ourselves to be at that time, we were trained in the Lamaze and Leboye delivery methods . My doctor, a kind and wise soul, was hip too. He handed Jesse off to Carl immediately after his birth to be submerged in his waiting warm bath in our darkened birthing room. It really was remarkable. He was so big and had been so crowded for the last few weeks that he was sluggish at birth. A fact that caused me worry as soon as the doctor said it, but when Carl placed him in the water he relaxed and started kicking his legs and checking things out as if to say " What is this roomy womb? Whatever it is I like it. And who is this fuzzy person holding me? He looks like a push-over." And you were so right. Thank you God, for blessing us with Jesse ,24 years ago today. Happy Birthday son.

I cherish him too but that is not to say that we cannot irritate the pea turkey wine out of each other. Don’t ask me about pea turkey wine. I don’t know where it came from or what it is but it has always been part of my vernacular. A vernacular often stifled but always waiting for opportunities. But back to irritating, I found the perfect Valentines Day card for him. The front says “Sometimes I just want to hug you till you pop.” And inside,” other times, I just want to pop you” How romantic. I also bought him a mean anniversary card while the one he gave me was so sweet it made me cry. Not the card actually, but what he had written in it. Maybe I should double up on my patches for awhile. I really do love you CC.
