Wise Baby

26 Apr

Sometimes I suspect Timothy understands far more than an 11-week-old is supposed to.


He was sitting in his swing, mumbling and cooing, but starting to sound a bit irritated. I approached him and, while winding up the swing, told him: you need to sleep now – because then you will eat and then you and Daddy have a thing at the community centre to attend together. So you need to rest now.

The moment I stepped aside, he promptly turn his head and fell asleep.

And there are many occasions like this when I feel awestruck. Dumbfounded. Whatever adjective you like…
