Most Joyful Day

Oct 29, 2019

Well, my most joyful day is, I have two children. I have a son and I have a daughter. But my son was six years old when I had my daughter. In those days they had no sonogram. When I had my daughter, I started crying. Because she was wrapped in her umbilical cord. She was blue, blue, blue. But, as a mother, you start crying.

But I love my, I love my kids. But when my daughter was born, I was so happy. I always wanted to have a girl. I wanted a girl, you know. And my son, he told me, you know when you’re pregnant, mommy’s having a baby. He said, “Mommy, are you having a baby girl?” You go, oh David, I don’t know what Mommy’s having. When I had her, he says, you know baby’s cries a lot, he told me, “Mommy, go give her back. She cries a lot.” He told me give that back. But, when I had my daughter I was so happy.

And your son David, he like having a sister?

Yeah. In the end. They’re six years apart. Yeah. He’s 49 and she’s 43.
