Above: Touch the Sun by Sakura Chrno

I’ve always had an affinity with babies.  I am drawn to them.  They stare at me in restaurants, a lot.  This happens so often it’s a joke amongst my friends. “Baby fan club!” my girlfriends exclaim.  When I was a teen, I loved babysitting and nannying.  Today, my practice is filled with babies.  I attend births often, adjusting moms during labor and babies right after. I do home care visits for babies.

So I ask myself, what’s with the baby obsession, for crying out loud!?

It has something to do with how I see them as little beings of light.  Not in a religious, “light of the world” way, but in a “they are still connected” way.  Babies sense that I hold space for their perfection, never judging or projecting, but empowering and enabling.  They are perfectly placed in time and space, as in a Georges Seurat painting in which every little dot is needed to make the picture.  Each baby is a vital dot in the painting.

A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte by Georges Seurat

In fact, it totally irks me when moms act like their kid is God’s gift to the universe.  All children are a part of the universe — cute or not, smart or not, disabled or not, and interesting or not.  They are all cosmic.

Babies are pure.  Still tethered to the unknown.  And how crazy is it that they grow in our wombs in fluid and then come out and breathe air!  Talk about otherworldly.  I read a great line that you vibe with your tribe — whether it’s the scrapbooker’s club, book club babes, workout mommas, Giants’ fans or the breastfeeding crew.  I vibe with the Babies of Light crew.

The point of all this is to remember and hold our kids as the miracles they are.  Babies and children can wake you up at 3am, have a full scale meltdown at the market, ask for piercings you’ve never heard of, or bite a kid at preschool and still be perfect.  We serve them by recognizing that every moment is who they are and accepting the yin and the yang of that bundle.  Every moment contributes to the full picture.

Let’s have conversations with our kids — and our babies! — about how awesome it is to be alive and well. To be alive and having symptoms.  Let’s remind them they are perfect the way they are, even in a moment when they don’t feel that way.  Just by being, they are perfect.

And this reminds us that the dot alone, out of context, cannot be understood.

 

So tonight at dinner, look at your kids.  See their light. Their connection to the cosmos.  Remain open to whatever it is they are contributing to the universe.

    So many wonderful observations here. As I watch my son get older, I realize the best thing I can do for him is honor the things he knows to be true about himself, and support him in the moment so he can discover his own light.

      Hi Alexander! Thanks for your feedback. One of the reasons I started this site was because I could not find this conversation out in the world. I don’t know of any groups right now but I am going to be sharing mine in early spring this year. Please join us there! Watch my site for it’s opening.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and amusing,
    and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something
    too few folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I stumbled across this during my
    search for something relating to this.
