Ever put an infant to sleep?
Not in the manner when they “screech, scream, and blow up what little is left of your brain and you in turn holler scream and frighten them back to sleep” but in the manner when you take up a yawning cutie into your arms and move around slowly lolling them into their dreams… Try living that moment?
The kind of peace that transcends you is beyond description. Ever felt that kind of peace surrounding you in any other part of your life? Isnt it wonderful that all other things take second priority over seeing and enjoying a toddler in deep sleep? I mean even thinking of that moment, takes my breath away everytime.
The small hands and the digits, the small feet and those pouting lips… I could stare on for ever just looking at that wonder. Man! I do really miss playing around with kids. From being an official caretaker/babysitter/grown-up peer of kids to a boring, bike-flaunting, nerdy geek, I just miss the days of being kidlike among kids and those yawps!
Or is it just the gene speaking?
