In the past 3 months I have found out 3 of my friends are either pregnant or just delivered a baby. The latter group culd seriously give MI5 a run for their pounds. This is a humongous no. of persons within my network since I did not see any of it coming. I like to think I can tell human nature accurately and am generally able to read people (not like this lie to me dood but you get my drift.)
This turn of events has made me start feeling old. so now I know 3 new mothers. Three new innocent minds to be spoilt. Three new series of good and bad decisions. Three new lives. Three new future tax payers. Three new mouths to feed. I suppose the grind must go on. Contrary to popular belief, consistently flogged by religions, the universe does not exist to serve humanity. We are tenants with a brutally short stint in this apartment we call Life. These three kids will be reading about Ocampo in history books. They will wonder why phones had keypads. They will be shocked that there was a time twitter and facebook didnt exist. And they will think we are ancient and so not with it.
Congratulations to all the new Mothers out there and good luck!
