    Default A New Mother's Daydream:

    by Julie Nielsen
    Hello God, are you there?
    Yes, my daughter?
    Look, I was wondering if I could exchange this baby. This isn't the one I ordered.
    Oh? But that's model 265: bright, independent and content, just like you asked for.
    But she cries all the time
    Oh yes, that model's very effective at communicating her needs. Just meet them as best you can
    But I might spoil her
    Oh, Haven't you heard? I make babies spoil-proof now
    But she wants to be picked up all the time
    That's why I gave you arms
    And she wants to feed all day and all night
    Wouldn't you, if you had the chance to drink something warm and sweet, that wasn't fattening and was packaged in a cuddle?
    Yes, but I'm not getting any sleep
    Look, you two are a package deal. You're not supposed to be separated. Just bring her into bed with you and go back to sleep
    But she wants to feed even when she's not hungry
    Sounds like she may need comforting
    But she's got a dummy, a lamb-skin, a bunny rug and a bear
    Hey, maybe she just wants Mum
    But I never get a break. She won't let anyone else take her and she cries when I leave her
    You know, thats because she loves you better than anyone else in the whole wide world. Is that so bad?
    No, but I'm not getting any jobs done
    What??? You're doing the most important and necessary job of all - MOTHERING
    Well, how was I supposed to know that? She didn't come with any instructions
    Yes she did! I'd already given them to you in a booklet called "Instincts"
    Oh yes, I'd forgotten about that
    Look, just relax, give everything time. And if things still don't work out, let me know and we'll see if we can give you a refund
    Ok, but you know something? Maybe this one's not so bad after all
    I know
    God?
    Yes?
    Thanks

    I just loved that, remineds me of Charlotte she will cry if she can see me and someone other then her dad is holding her until she gets to me and she cuddles into me and is happy
