Mommabear.. and mommabears everywhere

Stephanie_in_TNJuly 23, 2002

I received the following in an email today and thought of you. Also thought all other moms would get a kick out of it.

If you're a momma bear, you get to hibernate.

You do nothing but sleep for six months. I could deal with that.

Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid.

I could deal with that, too.

If you're a bear, you birth your children (who are the size of walnuts)

while you're sleeping and wake to partially grown, cute cuddly cubs.

I could definitely deal with that.

If you're a mama bear, everyone knows you mean business.

You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat

them too. I could deal with that.

If you're a bear, your mate EXPECTS you to wake up growling.

He EXPECTS that you will have hairy legs and excess body fat.

Yup... I wanna be a bear.

He's good.
Had a check up on the arm the other day, doc said it's all healed, we don't need to come back to see him (until someone else breaks a bone). It looks and works like the other arm. We can feel a lump where the bone grew around the break, but even that is less noticable all the time. It's amazing how fast they heal when they are so little.

He's 8 weeks old now. So he's becoming very alert and we get flashes of smiles every once in a while. He really likes interaction now, and his brothers and sister are happy to provide it!

Thank you for asking.
Stephanie -who really needs to hibernate!

Let's try to keep the others from breaking any bones, ok?

Glad to hear he's healing up ok.

Hibernation sounds good now (in S. Florida with all the HEAT).
