Baby

The baby’s cloth toy has two eyes and a crooked little mouth, but I can’t identify it. The baby’s father points out the orange frill that circles the face and proclaims it a lion. I nod.

The baby’s mother is busy helping the baby expand like a balloon that’s now twice as big as the day it popped out of its package. Everything is on track, identified, and burped to perfection.
