Even Manly Men Love Babies
August 25th, 2009
Miss Mouse and I were heading home from a walk this afternoon, with her strapped into the baby backpack, bouncing merrily along and enjoying the view. We passed a group of construction workers who were fixing a broken water main (and, by the way, it really sucks not to have water).
As we went by, I heard Miss Mouse make one of her “happy noises” and I glanced back to see her beaming and waving enthusiastically.
And darned if that cadre of burly, scruffy, dirty men in their cut-off orange t-shirts weren’t all smiling and waving back.
