Exemplar

331117789_49546b992a_zPeople smile at my daughter. She is generally pretty friendly, smiley, and trés adorable.

But, there are certain women who seem to study her more than everyone else. They track her and place their hand on their protruding belly. My wife did the same thing while carrying Fleur. Though, she was far more open about telling people we were expecting and that is why she was staring at their child.

I hope she brings special joy in anticipating how their own child will behave.

Of course, I thought of writing this post when she was particularly challenged. This woman’s smile changed to what I think was determination that their child would not behave this way. It made me smile at her sweet summer child thinking.
