The Baby!
I am reposting this so that those of you who haven't heard my original story can see it:

"What am I going to do with a baby?" I howled when my husband and I were told I was pregnant. After months of surgeries, shots and stirrups, our in vitro fertilization had worked. So, what was my problem? I'd always wanted a family, but I'd pictured myself for so long as a professional, I couldn't see myself any other way.  And, I was oooold--thirty-eight. What if I couldn't keep up with a baby?

I'd grown up in a family of teachers, many of them Phi Beta Kappas. Growing up in that environment meant learning was always fun. From my first moments, my family encouraged learning through play, discovery and exploration. In spite of that background, I felt unprepared for the crying, helpless thing that was about to change my life forever.
