babe whisperer

last week i volunteered my arms to a post-natal yoga class. the moms need a break sometimes, and the teacher offers in return a free pre-natal class. she prefers having pregnant ladies help out because she believes both sides benefit. she was right.

i wandered the studio searching for crying babes, and when i found a sweet lil' whimperer, i asked the mom if she'd like me to hold her kid. no one turned me down. while my arms may have been aching from holding 5 or 6 kids of differing size and age, it was a good experience that also gave me confidence. i haven't held infants much recently, and coaxing and cooing to little ones for an hour and a half reminded me that i'm not a novice at this practice. plus, they were really sweet.
