David Beckham has classic (and irritating) good looks and at one point, was the world’s greatest soccer player. So needless to say, he and I don’t have much in common but Mr. Beckham was once quoted saying “when you have kids you do grow up. I have just started realizing it now-it changes the world, having children.” Well said Mr. Beckham, well said. I cannot really say when it hit me that I became a true parent and mature adult.

However, the farther along Vanessa was, the more I was relegated into a spectator position with the doctors and nurses taking more of a front seat and the tools or other contraptions being used to help get Vanessa out. In fact, it was one of these tools that were used that actually left two little parallel scars on Vanessa’s head. It was also about this time where I started to get much more emotional and light headed. As I became a bit more woozy I was further away from the action but shortly after, I regained my wits about me and I went back to my position at Liz’s side.
