Boys are found everywhere – on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around, or jumping to.
by Rabindranath Tagore (Hindu Poet)
If Baby only wanted to, he could fly up to heaven this moment.
It is not for nothing that he does not leave us.
He loves to rest his head on mother's bosom,
and cannot ever bare to lose sight of her.
Baby knows all manner of wise words,
though few on earth can understand their meaning.
It is not for nothing that he never wants to speak.
The one thing he wants is to learn mother's words from mother's lips.
That is why he looks so innocent.
Baby had a heap of gold and pearls,
yet he came like a beggar on to this earth.
It is not for nothing he came in such a disguise.
This dear little naked mendicant pretends to be utterly helpless,
so that he may beg for mother's wealth of love.
Baby was so free from every tie in the land of the tiny crescent moon.
It was not for nothing he gave up his freedom.
He knows that there is room for endless joy in mother's little corner of a heart,
and it is sweeter far than liberty to be caught and pressed in her dear arms.
Baby never knew how to cry.
He dwelt in the land of perfect bliss.
It is not for nothing he has chosen to shed tears.
Though with the smile of his dear face he draws mother's yearning heart to him,
yet his little cries over tiny troubles weave the double bond of pity and love.

The Inner Work of Mindful Parenting
by Myla and Jon Kabat-Zinn
“When we become parents, whether intentionally or by happenstance, our whole life is
immediately different, although it may take some time to realize just how much. Being a parent
compounds stress by orders of magnitude. It makes us vulnerable in ways we weren’t before. It
calls us to be responsible in ways we weren’t before. It challenges us as never before, and
takes out time and attention away from other things, including ourselves, as never before. It
creates chaos and disorder, feelings of inadequacy, occasions for arguments, struggles,
irritation, noise, seemingly never-ending obligations and errands, and plenty of opportunities
for getting stuck, angry, resentful, hurt, and for feeling overwhelmed, old, and unimportant.
And this can go on not only when the children are little, but even when they are full grown and
on their own. Having children is asking for trouble.
"So why do it? Maybe Pete Seeger said it best: ‘We do it for the high wages…kisses.’ Children
give us the opportunity to share in the vibrancy of life in ways we would not touch were they
not part of our lives….they share …[their] vital nature with us and call it out of us as well, if
we can listen carefully to the calling.”
"May the sun bring you new energy by day,
May the moon softly restore you by night,
May the rain wash away your worries
And the breeze blow new strength into your being,
And all of the days of your life may you walk
Gently through the world and know its beauty."
