I forgot to give the father mentioned in the last post a pat on the back. When the new baby was born, he presented his wife with a gift. Was it because she had carried the baby around for 9 months? Was it because she had morning sickness or was hot, tired, ill, hungry, etc..for months on end? That special “baby” gift could be for dozens of reasons. I believe that is was mostly for self-preservation for the father. If he stepped-up it that hospital empty handed on baby-day, he may have received a special gift himself. A kick where the sun don’t shine. New moms like to know that all there hard work was appreciated and jewelry gives them a lasting, tangible gift that she will associate with that special time of life.
