So Undignified

Catching up with Alison, an old friend, who had a baby a little while ago... 

... My brother and his wife just had a baby as well so I can fully appreciate how busy wee'uns keep you. Oliver can't crawl either. Holding him and playing with him, I realize just how long it takes for human beings to acquire some semblance of dignity. It's at once endearing and pathetic. Good thing we can't remember those early struggles. Or do you think it would make us kinder, gentler, more sympathetic and more humble, if only we could?
