Because there’s nothing that wakes up a sleeping baby like a Mama who sits down to accomplish something.
I have to say this about my littlest Valentine: before he was born, people told me it would be different with a boy. Mothering would be different, I mean. And I could never quite imagine what they meant. But now I get it. And I love it.
And now he is demanding his mama, so I’ll have to tell you more about it later.
