The miracle of a baby growing in your womb is one of those things you can't really articulate. It is hard to compare to any other experience in life. I guess if I was forced to pick something to align it with it would be the cultivating and nurturing of a chia pet (I grew up in apartments we didn't have gardens). The excitement of planting the seed, thoroughly reading everything there is to know about the chia pet, and watching it grow into something amazing. (Hopefully my child is never eaten by the cat and then knocked off the counter and broken beyond repair as was the fate of my poor chia pet)
So where is the humor in this, I did mention this blog would attempt to be funny. Well inside my womb my son grew arms, legs, ears, lips, organs, and so much more. None of these things seemed to be hard for him, pretty painless. So I find myself asking why then for the last 12 months little pointy, rash, and fever causing, sleep stealing teeth are ripping through his gums one at a time. I mean the kid grew skin in my belly, a full head of hair, and I didnt hear him complain once. Toe nails, nostrils, muscles, is it really to much to ask to just have the choppers in place on arrival?
So I'm not sure where to file it yet but I am starting a petition that will require kids to come out of the womb with a full set of teeth. I'm not saying it won't make for some interesting breastfeeding, but someone will invent baby mouth guards within a week. I think the shamwow guy is probably out of jail by now, he could come up with something.
As a small addition to the petition I may add a foot note regarding bladder control. I have been pee'd on more then a urinal at Fenway park.
Appreciate your support in this matter. I believe, together we can change the world"
