On My Way Home

On the tube, late this evening, I sat opposite a daddy, who had his 5 week old baby daughter in her pram beside him. She looked totally delicious, swaddled in blankets, fast asleep, with her leopard print hat and outfit on. The story was, as I chatted to him, that him and his partner had gone out together, her first night out since giving birth, and he'd decided to let her party on and take the baby home.

I was awfully envious of that baby girl.

I am still fertile, but my time has passed. The last time I had a choice, I opted for "the right thing". I'm 48 now, and still capable of having another baby, but my time has passed. I'm spending way too much time alone as it is. All this I know to be true. But my time has passed.

I am very very envious of that baby girl.

I want to say that if you want this, then it's not past your time. I want to say that but I don't know the structure of your life, or if you could plausibly handle having a baby now. It would be entirely foolish of me to say throw caution to the wind and do it anyway, because that's not always going to end well.

So instead I will say, remember what you have, how full your life is, and go with what you've got. ❤️
