On a baby’s cry.
March 5, 2013 § Leave a comment
The sound of a crying baby is one of the most heart-breaking sounds to hear. Along with the sound comes the tomato-red face and bunched up noise, wide-open drooling mouth, squinty eyes and those salty tears running down their chubby cheeks. One look at their helplessness and all you want to do is comfort them; but when you can’t, it’s an awful feeling of inadequacy. But then that moment when you’ve calmed them down — whether you’ve picked them up, made a funny face or monkey noise, thrown them high up in the air or tickled their tummies — is as satisfying as an ice-cold glass of water after a 6-mile run.
