“Mothers Should Have Three Pairs of Arms”

Mothers should have three pairs
of arms: One for each child on the bed
surrounding her. One for the baby girl
writhing for her milk. One for the baby
boy whimpering for her touch. And one
for the father wrestling with existential
questions in the middle of the night.
