I knw, in the parenthood of everyones imagination
your baby will be this little cute thing that hold tight onto
you fingers with alarming strength. . .
Curly hair made for the Johnson's baby oil adverts ofcourse
and skin so smooth you could see your reflection in it.
But how about when your baby arrives. . .you realise Omo Baba no2
has come early. . .his\her face reminds you of the gremlins movies
and his hair seems to be Taribo inspired. . . .
Do you go: Men, this baby wowo ooo and give it up for adoption
or settle into this tacit self deception where we automatically
infer cuteness when it comes to babies?
And on to more serious concerns- - - - -- - - - - -
isn't it legitimate to look into your newborn's eyes and
just imagine that he or she could be the next Anini
or Columbine shooters. . .or some such notorious character.
Rather than- - - - - - -My son is going to be a doctor or an Engineer. . . .etc.
