Whether to awaken the baby to feed her? Whether to pick her up or let her cry a little longer? And, because youre inexperienced, you are worried for fear you wont do the right thing, whatever the right thing is. At any rate you are trying to concoct the babys formula. Some mothers, even new ones, are born cooks. Some can no more read a recipe than they can read the handwriting on the wall. They have to concentrate. And in comes Sally from down the street. Sally is bright, gay, and tireless, and you always have thought her amusing. But today you are busy, and tired, and you have only this half hour in which the baby mercifully sleeps to wrestle with the formula. Sally says to go right ahead, dont mind her. She just wants to see the baby. She will Just tiptoe in, she assures you, and wont wake it.-(She does.)
