There is a newborn being showed off around my office right now. It would be wrong to steal her, huh? My face just got super flush and I’m getting cold sweats. Please tell me I’m not the only one who reacts like this?
BUT I will go over and see the cute baby and make all the squeely noises and congratulate the happy, new parents.
Ok, done. They literally parked themselves outside my office talking to another co-worker for 10 minutes so I wasn’t even given the chance to bail. The dad (my co-worker) said “Are you going to come see my baby?” and like a freshman being asked to prom by the senior QB, I excitedly said “Yes!” and jumped out of my chair to go see her. Game face: ON.
She was absoutely precious. I had to catch myself because I was staring at her like a hungry man stares at a steak. My husband came in my office and I started to tear up. He reminded me that one day it will be us. I truly believe that. But it still hurts just a little that it’s not us today.
Thanks for listening to me ramble.
