Mother's Amnesia

I have been realizing this week that Mother's Amnesia really does exist. This proves that God wants us to have babies.

Through Mary's labor/delivery experience and now having Dominick at home for the first week, I find that I am completely unable to remember the pain of labor (I remember it happening, but it's just not that vivid), how Clare was the first week we brought her home, sleepless nights (and days), etc.

How else do you think we'd sign up to have more babies? God HAD to make it so that we wouldn't remember all the unpleasant things, or I think most of us would swear "I'm NEVER doing that again!" as soon as it's over.

But in the end, I think we'd all agree that it's totally worth it.
