Caretaker

baby2For the first time in 18 years I had the opportunity this weekend to hold, feed and soothe a six-month-old baby.

I’m glad it’s not mine and I’m glad it’s not my children’s, either.  Maybe someday in the future I’ll be ready for grandfatherhood, but today was a reminder that today was not the day.
