I know what I'm doing this Mother's Day weekend!
Have you heard about Babies? It's a documentary, shot like a wildlife feature, by French film director Thomas Balmès.
Are babies the new penguins? I can't wait to see for myself!
Apparently there's no narration. We follow four babies from birth through their first year and are free to make our own conclusions about parenting, child development, and the universality of the human experience.
We'll meet Hattie from San Francisco...
Byar, from Mongolia...
Ponijao, from Namibia...
And Mari, from Tokyo.
Maybe I'm so excited about the film because it's been way too long since we've had a baby in our house. Though I don't miss the sleepless nights, the spit up on the shoulder, and all those poopy diapers, how my arms long for those sweet embraces, a good smelling baby head, and those tiny little feet!
Anybody have a bébé I could borrow? I'll give it back, I promise!
So what do you think? Have you heard all the hype?
No? Take a look at the trailer and I bet you'll be hooked.
Have a great Wednesday, y'all! And if you've got a baby at home, give the sweetie a mushy kiss for me!
