Ready or Not...

Ahhh, spring,
Summer and winter stretch into months of hot and cold. But spring sneaks up on us, then poof! it's gone.
Babies are like that.  They sneak up on you before you're ready to let go of your own childhood, then, poof - they're gone.
I remember lying on the delivery table with my first child.  Up until this point, I thought it would be 'fun' having kids.  After a particularly difficult contraction, I looked up at my doctor and insisted, 'I don't want to do this anymore.'
