In Defense of L, Part V

L has four daughters. They're now 13 to 20-something. I held each one as a newborn. L was always happy to let me be close to her girls and she shared a lot about her pregnancies, deliveries and child-raising experiences with me. I think I was usually the second or third person she (or her husband) called after the babies came. The girls and I were pretty close when we lived near each other. L's family would always come over to my place Christmas Eve for our open houses and having those kids around always made the holidays more fun. For years I had their school pictures on my refrigerator. I had kids in my life for many years thanks to L.
