Trying to Understand the Love of a Parent

Before we lost the embryo, a friend explained that he found it amazing how he could stare almost endlessly, with boundless love, at his sleeping newborn. I thought of that one morning this weekend when I found myself staring for quite a while at Kathy sleeping next to me, with what felt like boundless love. It was then that I realized the purity of the love that parenting provides, because with Kathy, in addition to the welling up of love I felt, I was wondering if I'd get lucky when she woke up.

Aww, what a sweet man you are. Until the very last line, the emphasis was on "sweet". With the last line, it shifted to "man".

I couldn't have said it any better than mary p.!!!!!

Do you know Aaron personally?

('Scuse us, Aaron, while we indulge in some girl-talk in the corner.)

Debbie:
Nope! No need to know him personally to comment on that post, though: he was being such a guy. (But I'll be the first to admit that I generally quite enjoy this aspect of the gender!)

I do know Aaron, and what he said in his blog is just soooo Aaron! He has an angel sitting on one shoulder and a tiny little devil on the other.

Kinda funny to see you two Canadian women talk about me this way. I'll just hang out and see what y'all have to say.
