Now first let me just say that I'm not one of those girls that looks at every baby and pines for one of her own...C'mon, I mean first thing's first right?
I don't know why, but this week I just kept thinking about how cool it must be to be a mother. How amazing it must be to have that special bond with your very own child...to see your face in their face must be pretty darn amazing.
It just so happen that last night my girlfriend's husband was out of town and she asked if I would want to come for a sleepover. I said sure. She's a dear friend of mine whom I don't get the chance to see that often since our lives are so different and busy.
Well, she happens to have a one year old boy. Pretty stinkin' cute kid if you ask me. Early in the morning I heard him crying and since my girlfriend had been up about 4 times with him I decided to get him myself.
I scooped him out of his crib. He was all warm and baby smelling and I brought him out to the couch with me to quiet him down. I put him on my chest and patted his back. He would lay there with his head on my chest and then every so often he would pick up his head and look at me. He would pat my face with his little hand and then he would stop and put his head down again. This went on and on. It was so precious. I just felt so thankful, that even though I'm learning contentment with were I am in life, I had the desire to be around a baby and had the sweetest time with this little one.
I don't know...it was just really neat....
oh yeah, and I actually had the chance to try slacklining this afternoon with some friends. All I can say is that it's an awesome alternative to working out AND feeling like a kid! Don't worry Mom. I didn't fall too far ;-)
