Mothering Earthlings

Four year and eight months ago an alien entered my world. A tiny 8-pound creature that depended on me for everything. For the most part I was clueless, despite all the research I did and all the preparations I made. Are you hungry? Are you sleepy? Are you gassy? Are you in pain? I asked this extra terrestrial being I called Gael and each time he responded with a cry. Twenty months later another 8-pound alien was beamed into my world, I called this one Aiden. No sweat. Been there, done that. Easy peasy. Guess again, Rone. Then it dawned on me, I'm the odd one out. Gael and Aiden are now walking, talking little ..... people. Looks like I'm the strange being around here.
