I had the pleasure of helping this big white elephant get going on the first few hours of his life tonight. He's a big calf and his momma is short on milk. So he's got a few things going against him but he was more than willing to try. As I was trying to help him keep the tit in his mouth, I actually couldn't help but sympathize with him and his momma. I was remembering when we brought our first-born home and struggles I had learning to nurse my baby. Now most women in this world would be offended to be compared to a cow.
But in all reality, we're not so different from eachother are we? Just mommas trying to do the best we can for our babes.
And sometimes we all can use a helping hand.
