Her Bad Mother

Monday, May 19, 2008

Birth Day

Miss Emilia would like to introduce you all to her baby brother, Mister Jasper, who arrived last night at 9:16pm.

After very narrowly escaping being born at the side of the road.

Their bad mother, who is happy but nonetheless shell-shocked from what was - no exaggeration - a somewhat traumatic birth experience, needs to recover for a day or two before sharing that story. In the meantime, accept this photo and a weakly blown virtual kiss as both birth announcement and thank-you (for your amazing support during this crazy pregnancy) card.

Congrats! I completely can relate to the almost having him on the side of the road---I had Brody within 50 minutes of arriving at the hospital. And my husband lost his beloved Puma's that night when my water broke all over his sneakers. Fun times.

I hope you have a speedy recovery! Can't wait to hear your story.

Did you give birth orally? Please say no. If however you need support about dealing with a traumatic birth, lemme know. I've had two, so I probably have decent enough credentials.

If you don't already have Gloria Gaynor on your iPod, now would be a good time. And Kool and the Gang "Celebration!" : )

xxoo to you and yours!

Whew! I swear to Goddess, I felt all big and punchy with you, dollin. However, all that heave and ho with your belly was worth all the gold in the world when I see that fine little guy in his sister's arms.

As always, you did well and did it with style, HBM. I salute you and your baby boy feminist. Holla!
