New MommyI was on my second day of maternity leave from work. I had my son on Sept 5th. We came home from the hospital on the 8th. He was six weeks early so I had to buy baby essentials on Sunday the 9th.
I was home and awake with him. I was not normally at home so I decided to watch TV. I had on the Today Show when they broke in with the news report. I watched the second plane hit the second tower.
Being a new mom, I was exhausted from lack of sleep and dozed off (you sleep when they do) on the couch. I woke up to his crying and saw that the Pentagon had been hit. Then the towers fell.
I sat with my new son in my arms and cried. I actually felt sorry to have brought him into such a world.
