the name of the dream

the baby in my arms

 

it wasn't my baby, it was the baby of a male acquaintance

 

i didn't rate the father, his life was more important than the baby's and the reason i had the baby in my arms was that the father didn't have a clue as to how to hold and comfort a baby that needed attention for one reason or another

 

the father had passed the baby to me when the baby began making complaining sounds

 

the father couldn't appease the baby and it made the father look incompetent as a father, which he was

 

i seated the baby in the crook of my right arm so that the weight of his upper-body was against my bicep and his head was resting between my shoulder and pectoral and my forearm and hand was supporting him at the front which allowed his legs to dangle free (standing-holding-baby position no.1 )

 

the position let me stoop and swivel and swing and rock the baby and the left-arm was free to make a baby meal or whatever

 

in the final scene of this dream, the mother and baby were locked in eye-contact and as i moved closer to the mother we could both see the outside of the baby's lips were turned up very slightly exuding a subtle smile of satisfaction
