I always made sure they had those realistic bottles where the milk and juice disappear as soon as they tip the bottles into those perfect rosebud baby-doll lips.
I've purchased baby beds, baby strollers, baby car-seats and baby play-pens. I have sewn baby blankets, doll clothes and tiny burp rags.
As we played, I shared verses about motherhood and tried to instill in them a love for mothering.

Brookie, at two years old, knew exactly what to do with a crying baby.
First, you carefully embrace the crying baby to make sure he is hungry and not just fussy.
You very gently turn his head towards you.
