Forty years ago today I was sitting in the fathers’ waiting room wondering when my baby would show up. Back then fathers were not allowed in the delivery room, and we had no way of knowing if you were a boy or girl. I could not hold you at all in the hospital. I didn’t get to hold you until we got home. On the way home your mom and I were really scared. This was for real, and we didn’t have any idea of how we were going to handle this little bundle of joy.

Anyway, back in the waiting room I was waiting. I tried to read, tried to get something to eat, even tried to take a nap – since your mom woke me up in the middle of the night to take her to the hospital. Then a nurse came to the door pushing a glass box with this little naked girl in it. I fell in love. Then the nurse walked away and then I saw you. Now that was real love. They took you away. Your mom and you had to stay in the hospital for three days. I had to leave the room when you were brought in to be fed and I could only see you through the glass partition in the maternity ward. The times, they have changed. But you haven’t. You are just as sweet now as you were then. Except now you have clothes on.

Happy Birthday, Mousie!

Thank you everyone! So far it has been a normal day. I'm about to head home, though, and see what my hubby bought me. I'm a teensy bit scared. :)

What your dad wrote was very sweet. You're so lucky to have him around for your 40th.
