The baby was so well dressed, all eyes were on him and his parents. Was it the little man’s birthday that he had his mini designer suit on? Then one lady in her fifties plucked up the courage and asked. “Is it your boy’s birthday? It’s so nice to see you take time with his appearance, most people don’t bother anymore.”
“Oh no, we are going to a photo shoot,” said the boy’s Dad.
Slur, slowly wave it off,
No marks on you, quick,
Forget the slur for sure.
The drums set the tone for the party,
Throwing in a rhythmic grove,
That got everyone dancing.
Happiness flowed like water,
Meandering through the grass,
Swishing all the bodies to to and fro,
To enjoy their celebration dance.
The pirates had a hideout in the cove, these were modern day pirates and who would have thought they existed. The world has enlarged with tech opportunities and they are not all beneficial. Someone had made a virtual cove and was conducting piracy, of what I don’t know! Whatever the ships that passed had they wanted. It was a…a….a dream game..
‘All that glitters is not gold’ is an old saying I suppose one could also say that “all that sparkles is not diamonds”
He woke up blurry eyed,
Why would that be?
Someone said men don’t cry,
Well he did,
They were tears of joy!
It’s great to have posts in other languages translated. Some can be difficult to understand though. Others are not translated at all. We might be all tech- wise but i know all these things take time. I’ll enjoy what we have for now.
I bought some oranges,
My Greengrocer saw me contemplating,
“Oh they are very juicy, the best Spanish ones”, he said.
I thought that I will try them on his recommendation and did,
So true, so juicy and I wish I bought more than three.
Squatting is supported by the exponents of natural birth as a beneficial way to give birth. So what are the benefits being suggested? Squatting can cut the length of labour and expedite delivery. In my experience the women, whom I have been midwife to, on changing to a squatting position do have their babies quite quickly after having been labouring for a long time. It always seem to be the last position taken, although some women put squatting as their choice of delivery position in their Birth Plan. Getting down at the right time is important otherwise it is tiring on the legs and hips.
According to Doula, Alana Bibeau, PhD, the pelvic opening is widened about 20% to 30% by using the upper legs as levers on the pelvic bones and another benefit is more oxygen gets to uterine muscles and the baby, helps to dilate the cervix,.labour pains are lessened and the incidence of episiotomy or perineal tears and caesarian section has dropped.
Squatting birth is something for pregnant women to consider.
