|It's a documented condition & I am absolutely afflicted by baby envy.|
|I mean, I have a really bad case.|
Not 'kidnap a kid' bad - more like 'pining to parent again' bad.
|Parenting is a job that takes all the love & patience & devotion you have inside you. |
It takes years & years of dedicated trial & error experience to master the job.
|It is not an easy job, but it is more rewarding than any job that you will ever work for pay.|
|But then, just when you're at the top of your game,|
somehow your job is just pretty much.......... Over.
|If you're lucky, you may get to stay on as a consultant.|
|If you're very lucky, your kids will live close by, |
& you will have the joy of being a "hands on" grandparent.
|One day I'm sure that my kids will give me grandchildren.|
Some days are definitely harder than others to wait patiently.
|In the meantime, until that happy day,|
I keep my skills sharp on any kinda baby that gets within my reach.
