The Christmas I was pregnant with our first baby I must have listened to the song, “Mary Did You Know?” at least one million times. Our due date was still three months away, but I knew the baby I was carrying was a boy. We opted not to confirm my inklings with sonograms and reminded our doctor to keep mum on the gender each time the magic wand glided across my belly.
Still, I knew. I even called him Baby Boy as I patted my growing middle and waltzed through life talking to my precious cargo everywhere we went. And that winter my Kathy Mattea CD (iTunes was only a twinkle in Steve Jobs’ eye) accompanied us like a Hollywood soundtrack illuminating every well-played scene.
I’m over at the MOB Society today. Please join me there for the rest of the story. . .
I feel a Kathy Mattea singing party coming on. I.love.her. Do you know “Harley” and “Where Have you Been”? some of my all time faves.
Also, have you seen Ceelo Green’s version of Mary Did you Know? It’s was making the rounds on Facebook yesterday. It’s really good even though Jesus looks a little like Brad Pitt. 😉
