It was 1983, and I was 25 years old and I was happily married to a hometown guy. I was working as an hourly Tour Guide at Disneyland, in Anaheim. At the time I had not realized the impact of giving birth to my first son would be. I attended classes for natural childbirth Lamaze and also attended classes at the nearby hospital on breastfeeding. But nothing prepares for the moment when the nurse places that small tiny infant into your arms. Also to my amazement…is that they let you leave the Hospital with the newborn baby, thinking that you know what you are doing. How amazed I was that the motherly instinct comes into play and somehow you figure it out. I used the call my first son, the experimental baby because everything you are doing is for the first time and you are learning at a very fast rate.
