Baby Love

It's baby time in NASCAR. Jeff Gordon's wife is due soon and several other racers have wives who are with child as the term used to be once upon a time. I think it's great. Babies are a joy. There's just nothing like holding that new life and watching it grow.

Of course, then there's nursery issue. I'm very traditional and tend to enjoy the classic themes, like Winnie the Pooh. These days, the possibilities are endless. There are so many stores and websites where parents can shop around for furniture and accessories, be it a nursery crib or changing table.

In today's world, parents like to know the gender of their child before birth so they can decorate. I'm not one of those. I got a kick out of racer Matt Kenseth and his wife last year. They had their doctor tell their decorator the gender of the baby and then gave her the key to the nursery, making sure that they themselves didn't have it. The decorator kept it a secret so that they could be surprised when the baby was born. I thought that was so cool.

Baby love: it's a great thing.
