I hung with out with one of my Wicca students yesterday. She’s incredibly pregnant, due in under a week. She looks just about ready to pop.
You can see and feel the baby’s feet move as he shifts around in her mother’s tummy. It’s an amazing experience.
Mother and baby are both healthy. The baby may be a little too healthy; Momma is worried that having such a large baby may make delivery difficult. I guess sometimes good pre-natal care and nutrition has its price.
Obviously, having a baby will mean profound changes in my student’s life. As a Wiccan teacher, it will bring some changes in my life as well. Will my student be able to attend Circles as often? Is my apartment “baby-proof”? Will having a baby present change the energy in the Circle?
We are all going to learn something new from this, both the students and the teacher.
