Megan's Head

A place where Megan gets off her head.

a baby girl

I look at the tiny hand with fingers curled

And all balance in the world is restored.

Her mother is calm and totally beautiful.

Her father is beaming, a full 10 years younger looking, himself suddenly a child

In brand new father shoes.

A newly made uncle, my husband, cannot stop crying.

He is leaking the silver pure emotion of love.

Smiles are the language of the gang of family and friends

As the precious yet unnamed but most instantly loved

freshly born person sniffs and sighs.

We gather round, move in and out, like a hive,

Interested, involved, and full of feeling, still getting over

the surprise, everyone said it was a boy.

And in no time at all a baby girl

Has firmly established her unique place

In our hearts and world.

    Mazeltov – PEASE GIVE MY BEST AND WARMEST WISHES TO THE NEW PARNTS AND THE BABY DAUGHTER AND I HOPE THEY ARE ALL DOING WELL.
    I JUST BROKE OUT INTO A HUGE SMILE WHEN I READ THE NEWS –

    Megan, now you are a Tante too and BF an Oom. Just as well you have to return to Cape Town or you’ll spoil her rotten.

    Please tell Granddmother Elaine that I wish her all the joy and nachas possible from her first grandchild. Love Tante B
