One day Isaiah said to me, "Mom, I wish I was a woman."
Thinking it was an odd wish to express, I asked why.
"Because I wish I could have a baby and push it out."
"Well, Isaiah, it is a pretty amazing thing. But it does hurt very much, and most men are glad they don't have to push babies out."
"Well, I just wish I could."
"There are also advantages to being a man, though."
As strange a desire as that is for a little boy, I'm glad to know that in spite of having had difficult deliveries, the attitude he's gotten from me about having babies is that it's awesome.
