I Remember – #974

I remember walking Nadia’s son Atlas around the office while she was in a meeting.  I carried him – he was three months old, or thereabouts – over to two young women I was friends with to show him off.  Both had repeatedly expressed zero interest in children and had been quite hands off with Atlas whenever he came to the office.  And then Ashley – positive, cheerful, smiling and interacting with Atlas, but not enamoured and unwilling to hold.  And then Bridget – Eyes lit up, body language shifted to become welcoming and ready for a hold.  Clearly in love.  And Atlas’ eyes lit up as she held him.
