Last Friday afternoon we went down to the waterfront to see a boat that's used for eye and dental surgery in various poor nations that was moored there.......dreaming about going aboard the Mercy Ship in Africa (we've since been turned down - too many kiddos!!!!)
It was such a different world. The waterfront I mean, not Africa. I am not for a moment saying that the people we saw didn't love their babies, but it all looked quite FAKE. The babies looked like fashion accessories. Highly-made-up mothers in label clothing teetering on label stillettos next to partners in more label clothing pushing buggies (that cost more than our van) containing babies covered in yet more labels.....
My baby was attached to me with a long piece of muslin from Spotlight.
I had blue croc-wannabees on my feet ($10 from the Warehouse).
We were accompanied by too many kids to be able to stop at one of the teeny tiny cafe tables for a coffee (not that I drink it anyway!!!).
