Last weekend, I visited my friend who recently gave birth a bouncing baby girl named Leia. She’s so cute and cuddly while she was sleeping in her crib and using one of the baby blankets that I gave her during her mom’s baby shower. What an adorable sight!
As a single careerwoman, there are times when I also think about having a family and a baby (or babies) of my own someday. The prospect of having all those responsibilities (of a small baby depending on you for everything) seemed a bit scary though since I don’t have much experience in child raising. My friends who already have a family of their own told me that it’s something that you learn along the way. They claim that it’s a never ending learning process and, albeit hard, is worth it especially when your children (and your spouse, of course) shows their love and appreciation to you in their sweet and innocent ways.
But it’s still a long way to go, right? For now, I don’t have a prospect on my hubby-to-be so I might as well just work on my baby caring skills through my friends’ babies. If I do well on my “occasional baby sitting skills,” for sure I will do better when I have a baby of my own.
