Heather: Did you want blue eyed babies?

Audrey: Oh, I didn’t care if (the eyes) blue, green or brown, just as long as they were big and pretty eyes. Dad and I had pretty kids!

(I often say to myself), what was the matter with my head? Having kids as if it was nothing? Having so many kids? I think now I’m glad I had them. I don’t want to get rid of them. I’ve got them and I want to keep them! But what was wrong with my head to have so many kids and not think a thing about it?

I was happy as a bug (in a rug).  I would rock you always as I just loved to have a baby in my arms. I would rock (the baby) back and forth in my arms. No wonder that I had a small waist. I like infants the best. I could hold a baby forever in my arms. Three and four year olds are still pretty fun, but I loved (the stage) when you were just babies. You grew up so fast.

You (Heather) were a fat, pudgy baby when you were born. Then you were thin for the rest of your life.
