5 minutes: I make beautiful babies, she said

"Don't you think so?"

"Well I'm sure they are," I replied. I didn't want to suggest she was biased. But on the other hand, who was I to judge what was or was not beautiful? "What do you think is the most beautiful part about them?"

"Is a mountain beautiful?" she asked in reply. "Is the ocean beautiful? Is a tiger beautiful as it stalks its prey?"

I wasn't so sure I liked that last image, but I told her they were all beautiful in their own way.

"My babies are beautiful in their own ways as well," she said. "If you see them."
