Momma Bear

In the beginning I was stunned by her. Who is this moose of a child suddenly emerging from my womb?

Then I was perplexed by her. Who is this piglet of a infant, snorting, and snuffling all hours of the day?

Sometimes I am aggravated by her. Who is this bug of a girl, crying and pestering to be fed, and changed, and burped, and held, and fed some more?

She challenges me, she surprises me, she exhausts me, she betters me, she confuses me, she (yes...) bothers me, she astounds me. She humbles me.

She is my baby bear, and I love her fiercely.
