The Adorable Pillars of the Human Race

23 Nov

Is our first triumph – rolling over – locked away somewhere deep in our brain?

What is our very first thought?  Is it “I’m hungry”, “I love Mommy”, or “Why are my legs wet?”?

Does our first impression of  the world, on the day we are born, set the tone for the rest of our lives?

Is there anything cuter than a baby yawning?

Does holding a baby make everyone happy?  (and if it doesn’t, shouldn’t you think at least a little bit about going into therapy?)

What are babies thinking as they look around the room – and why do they get so happy when they see another baby?

If you could write a poem that accurately described a baby’s tiny foot wouldn’t that rival The Iliad?

Some people are prouder of what they have accomplished in show business than they are of their babies.  That’s just wrong.

Babies sure love those plastic bath tub books.  Could anything outside of a barstool have more germs lurking?

Babies are kings.

The whole existence of the human race rests on their fragile shoulders – and yet they seem so oblivious.

If there was a job called “Knight Errant of All Babies”, I would take it immediately and wouldn’t even care if it came with a dental plan.

Who can’t wait for a grandbaby?  Uh-huh.  You bet!

    So it is the cruelest cut of all that my oldest son declares he will NEVER reproduce. The evolution that created him, ends with him…and my dreams of being the world’s greatest grandmother are dashed.

    Another great installment! Especially loved:
    “If you could write a poem that accurately described a baby’s tiny foot wouldn’t that rival The Iliad?”

    AND

    “If there was a job called “Knight Errant of All Babies”, I would take it immediately and wouldn’t even care if it came with a dental plan.”

    Brilliant! Thanks for reminding us of the beauty of babies.

    Wow, no pressure on your kids or anything!
    If I still lived in SB I would take my Gwen over to see you so you could get a baby fix. It sounds like you need one!
