oh, mama


I was driving home from an early morning trip to the grocery, listening to the radio when a very sad story came on the air that made it very clear that I am now irreversibly, completely, and whole heartedly a mom.
The story is essentially that a baby humpback whale has been stranded/abandoned by its mom and has strayed into an Australian harbor…where it has been trying to nurse the yachts that are going in and out of the harbor.
It is looking for its mama.
I cried all the way home, thinking, “I’ll nurse that poor baby!” Now a mama, I feel like a mama to every baby.
