As the time has come for the Small Male to have his own key to our home I was thinking lightheartedly wa-hey it’s time to have another baby! Some hours later after my epic new gym/chin up/swim routine I was at the shop and spied a very small baby in a large set of male arms. The baby was about the size of one of the man’s biceps and had that little froggy huddle shape they barely unroll from at that 2 week age.

It was pouring rain, so I sat to eat some snacks and watch the pavement activity when lo agus behold male appears with baby, followed by woman I recognize, male pops baby in car, woman I recognize says bonjour, she does not pass car, she is going into car that baby just went into. That’s your baby I shrieked… you had a baby? How/when could you have had a baby?

The woman lives in the apartment practically underneath me. I see her several times a week minimum and never saw a hint that was pregnant. Though she has the most wonderful glossy head of hair. I was thrilled! I was thrilled! I was thrilled! This new baby will live in our building!

Eh voila there’s a new baby. Co-incidently she also has son almost finished high school. A fine fella he is, with lovely manners.
