Just Thinking

1) Happy to be home at last. My hospital room was starting to feel like a prison cell.

2) Overwhelmed: Mama is so good with the baby. I don't know how I can ever be as good as she is. She never panics and always knows exactly what to do. And I still panic at the slightest sign of distress from him and have to call her.

It's stupid to compare, I know. I mean, this is my first baby while my mother has raised 5 children AND she is a doctor. Of course what is overwhelming to me will be a piece of cake for her.

And it doesn't help that I still can't be as active as normal.:(

But still, she will be leaving sooner or later and she is one hard act to follow.

I hope I will pick up enough from her before she leaves.

3) Circumcision is awful. One of the few times in my life when I wished I wasn't born a Muslim. I mean, the way it felt. He's my baby. I just half-died giving birth to him. And they HURT him. And I had to let them when what I really wanted to do was to just BITE all of them until they bled.:(

Anyway, he seems ok now so I guess this is best forgotten.

4) My son has mascara eyelashes. Mashallah. I mean, I wish I could get mine to look like that with mascara. They're so thick and long and dark and beautiful. Guess they're his father's but they show more on him because his face is so tiny.:)

Are you serious?????

You had c-section because u had a baby boy???? Its a first time i hear this, this has no logic, is it the reason you say you wished not being Muslum? what it has to do with Muslim?

I mean, really????? u have C-section because its a baby boy???

Don't mention it, sometimes I too get lost in the words :)
It is awful & very cruel, both for the baby & his mommy, but if it has to happen, it is better when they are newborn, than later..

just love mascara eyelashes! :)

the circumcision made me feel the same way... just hated the thought of putting my son in harm's way. i probably would have opted not to do it if my husband didn't insist upon it.
