The End!! Maybe the end of The Pregnant Waitress…but please you have so much more to tell? I love your stories, your writing, you’re only just beginning!!

And I love this last, because it takes me back to when I had my baby…ahh…I know how what she’s going through…I really loved the whole pregnancy, labor experience…crazy…but I did!

So Violet is home…ahhh….sigh!

Violet’s birth story is beautiful! Congratulations on an incredible birth. Your an amazing writer and I have loved reading about your experience with pregnancy and labor. Motherhood will provide you with lots of writing material!

I just found your blog through Patrick’s blog at Potowomut. I’m a little confused about Ben? Anyway it doesn’t matter. While your story is not so much like mine, I am compelled to write this. The feelings your story made me re-experience are sooooo cool!!!
It was the best days of my life when my son Ryan and my daughter Lily were born. They are now 16 and 10 respectively. That feeling of unknowing & overwhelming fear and joy can not be felt without the experience. Your entry made me relive it. Pretty awesome. OK I’ll admit it… tears in my eyes! Thanks! I needed that today! I needed love, joy, fear and unexplainable contentness. You know what I mean? This unexplainable peace? Like the world is spinning around you but everything is paused because y6ou focused on this one beautiful thing? Awe hell, I can’t explain it.
It’s almost like it was meant to be that on a day where things didn’t seem to be going right for me (nothing major) that I stumble upon something that puts my life back in perspective. Thank You! I can’t wait to share this with my wife!
I wish you and your family the best!!!
