tender as a nursing mother

Over at One More Moore this really took me back to the 80's. I spent them nursing, changing, and generally having a blast with my 4 babies.

No sooner would one child be pottie trained, then I would be nesting, and poised to deliver the next. All four were natural births, uneventful childhoods, until my youngest turned 4.

Now my daughters are very young adults. My son's aren't anywhere near having children yet. So, I wait. I sew for my baby cousin in South Beach, and it's no secret that I'm practicing for grand babies. And hopefully, when my kids have their own kids, they will feel as blessed and enriched by nursing as I did when I nursed them.

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
