So lovely to read this. You write about it in a way I recognise, the exhaustion, the elation, the miracle of it all, the chaos. I have never witnessed a birth other than the active participation of giving birth three times. I envy you that experience! I’d like to see that.

I just laughed out loud about the momentary loaf of bread/baby mix up. Ohhhhh how I can relate...

Congrats to you all and so good to read your words again!

PS. I too would happily back pay the months you did not charge. Paid leave for all!

Like Wendy, I did not realize you weren’t charging during your absence and, if there is a mechanism for retro-paying, please do charge my account for “back pay.” Paid maternity leave should be a right, in my book.

And welcome back! Can’t wait to read more.

Molly, I didn't realize you weren't charging us during this time. You deserve paid parental leave as much as anyone else! Thank you for sharing with us--the topics you mention are of intense interest to me, if you ever do want to expand on them.
