Isabella's drawing

I am not sure if you can see this drawing very well, but Isabella drew it for me last night. It is me birthing Emilia. She even made sure my glasses were on and I am wearing the right necklace. Cute little Emilia is smiling up at everyone.
I know a lot of people have ideas about birth that are different than mine. But to see my 4 year old draw this picture for me just reassures me all the more that we have the right idea. Not that I ever have even questioned it, but what better way to teach your children than to show them.

Absolutley With out a Doubt perfect! The Kids just confirm what we always felt & knew.. it's beautiful to 'hear' them say it though.. isn't it??

Great Drawing Isabella!

Well, I believe that Isabella may have a future as a Life Coach!! Ya know when you can relate first hand to the birthing process through the eyes of a child you can conquer anything or encourage another greatly. That is so awesome.

I have to second that one! I wholeheartedly agree. The coolest thing in the world was being there and having all 10 of those kids (mine included!) lined up from the age of 1 through, geez, 10 (?!) all completely respectful and fascinated by the beauty and mystery of birth! Nothing cooler!!! And how special to share that greatest wisdom with your children. Wish more kids could experience it! You rock sis. You rock Isqbella!
