Today I held the first baby I’ve held in lots of years – the last was a high school friend’s accidental baby with a grungey name – and now my maternal urges are strongly in the on position.
A poor woman with a toddler and a baby in a pram was in line to get on my bus. She was trying to fold up her pram and make sure her toddler didn’t run in front of traffic and just handed her chubby little son to the closest person. He was so cute and had the baby leg rolls. And now I really really want one.
