Flutter Kicks

The first time I felt my baby kick,

It was nothing like they said.

It didn’t feel like butterflies, or

A quickening within.

It felt like nothing I’ve ever felt before.

It felt like my entire life would never be the same.

And it felt like the love of my life

Had just tapped on my shoulder

And whispered “I’m here”.

As a father of four and now with seven grandchildren I can fully attest to the fact that your life will never be the same again.
Things as you describe are but one of the many miracles that one's children deliver along the road, make sure you capture them all. They are very fleeting!

Beautifully captured and powerful in a way that mummys understand. I loved reading this. Very nice.
