When you are pregnant, the most asked question is: Girl or Boy?
When you have the baby, the most asked question is: What's her name?
When the baby is 6 months old, the most asked question is: How many teeth does she have?
When the baby is 1 year old, the most asked question is: Can she walk yet?
When the baby almost turns 2, the most asked question is: And, baby number 2?
The first question in the row that really needs some thinking.
When Petti was born, my mother heart was born too, a difficult thing to have, as it takes away all sense of reason. It is something natural, so my mother heart would easily know the answer on the question. But there are so many other things to consider, the sort of life you(as an individual, as a couple, as a family) want to lead, the sort of education you want to give, the responsibility, this world, the fear, the joy, the worries, the pain, ...
This little bumblebee is almost turning 2 already, and although for the outside world after the gender, the name, the teeth and the walking, the interest decreases and questions about new babies are being raised, for me every new day with her is a day of new discoveries and growing (both me & her), a thing that I will not easily take for granted.
PS: She had surgery for her ears today, ventilation tubes were inserted in her ears and the fluids in her ear that caused dulled hearing were removed. This was such a small operation, and we got to go into the surgery room with her until she slept, and it was already so difficult to leave her there, so I can only imagine what it is when your child is actually sick and undergoing major surgery. Let's hope this will never happen.
