Baby Makes Three
I'm a few weeks away from turning 39 and all I can keep thinking of right now are babies. Sure, maybe it's because I just finished watching "Knocked Up" or the fact that we had dinner last night with our good friends who just had their third. I have to admit, that little peanut was oh so cute in his one piece jumper as his dad literally flew him high above our kids' heads and they laughed and marveled at how absolutely adorable he was.
Sure our friends are not sleeping much these days, but there is something to be said about the deliciousness of babies. As I helped my six year old slip into his pajamas I started to think that by next year, he'd be seven and may not want to cuddle up with me as we park ourselves in front of the tube. And my daughter, who is now 9 and is talking about going away to sleepaway camp, made me realize that by next summer, it'll just be the three of us for a few weeks.
I know I've been the one who has said time and again that my baby shop is closed and I'm thrilled to have kids that we can take on vacation and bring to restaurants and they are perfectly well behaved, but watching our friends' newborn smile and coo in his car seat made me realize, hey if I had a third, I'd have extra hands to help out with the babysitting.
Well, I guess time will tell this year if I decide to take the plunge and try for baby #3 or if something surprising happens, what I have come to realize is that there's nothing that compares to holding an infant in the crook of your arm.
