A new friend of ours has a new baby boy who is 10 months old now. He is really cute with the requisite chubby cheeks and all and quite a nice disposition. I wasn’t sure I was ready for this, as I am not around babies a lot of the time, but things went quite swimmingly and I am confident that I will be okay when it comes time for my son to bring home his child – whenever that may be.
The one thing that I did find out is that it is really tiring to run after a toddler. I remember doing that when my son was 10 months old, but as an older woman it really fatigued me! I hope that someday, while I am still able to get about and not to totally old, I will have a grandchild of my own. For now I’ll just have to pretend with the children of my younger friends.
