Brotherly Love

Me: (relating the story of K's birth to my Mother-In-Law)... and then they had to suction out her lungs as soon as she was out. She didn't make a sound for the longest time, and I was so scared.

G: Why were you scared mom? Is it bad for babies to be quiet?

Me: Well G, when babies are born, they usually cry.

G: Why do they cry?

Me: Because being born is pretty scary. It's cold, and it's bright, and babies don't understand what's going on.

G: And K didn't cry?

Me: No

G: (after a thoughtful pause) Wow mom, K must be really brave. (in awe) She's so brave she didn't even cry when she was born.

And now back to our regularly scheduled sibling bickering...

I had the same issue with my Molly and not crying - very scary!

And that is SOOOO cute, we will need to hear if that comes up again :) (Like brother pushes sister, sister cries, brother says, "you shouldn't cry you are so brave :)") I can totally see that happening in like 2 months.

It's nice to get that kind of profound respect for something, even if it's not crying when you're born!
