No idea why I thought of this right now:
Adults who become parents are usually challenged by their new role, with its responsibilities and anxieties. New parents also face previously unexplored values and attitudes that surface suddenly upon the birth of their baby, as well as new routines and new problems that need an immediate answer. Such challenges often elicit a heightened emotional response, so that mundane matters suddenly make for excessive worry.

As a mother who walks regularly, Brooklynite Micaela Birmingham discovered a design problem when going out with her child. "When my first daughter was a newborn, I proudly stepped out with my fancy stroller for our first walk to the park and was devastated that the sun was in my precious darling's eyes," she said.And yet out of such emotional anguish arises something as crisp and clean as the CityShade, which is available for Bugaboos, your better Peg Peregos, UppaBabys, and iCandy strollers.
Motherhood really is a miracle and a mystery that those of us who don't experience it firsthand can only appreciate incompletely.
