Earlier today I was holding the infant on my shoulder and he did that thing where suddenly they fling their head to the side and go careening down.
I grabbed him with my other arm and he looked at me like, What was THAT?
I smiled at him and said, “It’s OK buddy!”
He smiled back.
I said, “You’re OK, because it’s my job to catch you.”
He kept smiling at me. Then I thought of my own kids and burst into tears.
I’m such a sad old sap.
