No, not mine….at least not in this post.

My Dear Aunt Patty made an interesting observation a few years ago.  Here’s how our conversation went:

“These are cute, right?  On her…they’re cute.”  Said Aunt Patty as she pinched Jenna’s chubby legs between her fingers.

“Uh…yes?”   I said.

“Then why aren’t they cute on ME?”  She asked.

“And also…it’s okay if the baby gets up in the middle of the night to eat, right?”  I nod.  “Then it’s okay for me to get up in the middle of the night for a few oreos?”

I often remember this and laugh when I look at my baby’s squishy thighs.  And when DOES it stop being cute?  And why?

I love you Aunt P!
