This Day, five years back - part three

With Ickle in a cradle next to my bed, I slept soundly – the last night of uninterrupted sleep I was to know for many months.

The first day was spent learning to be a mother- cradling, nursing, burping, massaging, changing diapers– all the things they never taught you in b-school, but without which you could not survive a single day.

Ickle was better – he knew exactly how to wrap his tiny fingers around yours, look you straight in the eye and smile. “I trust you”, he seemed to say, and you knew you would try never to let him down.

Drabble (n) - an extremely short work exactly one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity and to test the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.
