|Ma with her babies and Basil from Activities|
"Oh, don't worry, Marte is babysitting." I reply in an attempt to put her worry at ease.
"That's right." Mom answers, allowing me to help her use the toilet. Redirecting only works once mom's question has been answered satisfactorily.
"I can't wait to go out and buy him some new cloths and things." Mom said to me yesterday as she cuddled her sweet little baby doll. A doll I bought because it resembled my nephew's face when he was an infant.
"He's such a good baby." I commented.
"Yes, he is!" Mom answers back, laughing as she gently stroked her babies cute little face.
"Sometimes he cries, but not for very long." Mom said in a matter of fact tone. When other residents cry out, mom thinks it's her baby; she cuddles him to settle his tears.
It's beautiful seeing mom with her baby. She named him Joseph.
