Babies a little while longer

August 7, 2009

I haven’t written anything about Veeru and Basanti in a while. Truth is they’ve been more on my mind than most things while my husband and I wait for the baby.

In so many ways this feels like we’re having a second. V&B have been part of our lives from the beginning of our marriage, when we just bought our apartment, when we first became “us.” You could say we were one of those couples to jump into having kids way too early. They sleep with us in our now increasingly small bed. They lounge around with us on weekends. They hang out by the door the minute they hear our footsteps outside. They are the center of our lives, and we, theirs.

I am worried that soon the spotlight wil be off them. They will just be the “pets” in the household. That I will look at them with fear for the first time as I worry about the safety of the baby. And it breaks my heart.

We put up the baby’s crib this weekend. Cats love secret new places, getting into inaccessible nooks and corners and true to their nature they delightedly slipped behind the jail-like bars. Innocently, they scurry in and out as though we built it for them, excited for the new game they now have. For their sake and ours, I want this delight to last just a bit longer.

The evil glint is all pretense. They're suckers for chin rubs and cuddles.
