Ya’ll, I got it bad!
I mean, who doesn’t love babies? I first got baby fever real bad when I first started at a daycare. I know, it’s kind of backwards. Being around screaming and crying infants, and especially toddlers, would probably send most people running. I loved it, though. There is no moment more precious or calming than holding a sleeping baby in your arms. My baby fever eventually let up and there are even some days I know I’m just not ready for a little one of my own yet. But there is something about hearing the news that someone I know is pregnant that just gives me baby fever all over again!
I’m here at the daycare today, sitting in a dark classroom while 4 and 5 year olds are sleeping, scrolling through the baby department on Amazon and reading blog posts about cloth diapers. I probably sound like a crazy person, but I like to think I will be well equipped and prepared when the time comes for my husband and I to start our own little family.
I am so excited to watch those around me start and grow their families. Children are a precious gift from God. I love the work I do and getting to spend time with these little ones. Babies and children remind me every day to smile, laugh, and not take things too seriously. Life is about living in the moment and appreciating the little things. We have so much to learn from kiddos.
Yes, I have crazy baby fever. But for now I’ll have to get my fix in the baby room at work, and I’m totally ok with that.
