Karla never heard her name as she stood by
the window, trying to stop the tiny form from screaming in
her arms. Stuart’s lungs were screeching at such a level that
she thought she might be going mad. The noise seemed to
have been going on forever. Since their arrival in Sioux Falls,
just three days before, her son had not let up. Apart from the
exhaustion and frustration, Karla felt like the worst mother
alive as she just couldn’t settle him. He ate normally, slept
only a little, and screamed a lot.
If only Kit was here. He would know what to do.
Karla jumped when she felt a hand on her back. Clutching
the screaming baby tighter to her chest, she spun around.
A petite blond woman in her early thirties was standing
behind her, looking at her with a concerned frown.
Karla flushed. She had had no idea the woman had been
She felt like a fool.
” Karla mumbled. “I didn’t realize you were
“I noticed.” Beth smiled. She didn’t look like she was
laughing or flinching at Karla’s face. She looked
sympathetic. “Would you like me to take Stuart for a bit?”
Karla wanted to thrust her son into Beth Waters’ arms and
walk the other way. But then guilt hit her. She couldn’t let go
of him. Karla hesitated.
“I couldn’t. I…”
But Beth shook her head.
“Karla, you need to eat, and you need a break. All mothers
need to have a break. Stuart hasn’t stopped screaming.”
She was right. But Karla was still reluctant. It was like she
would cease to exist if she handed Stuart over, even if it was
just for a few minutes.
“What about your ears?”
“I don’t mind. If it gives you a break.”
The temptation was there but still she held back until she
felt her stomach growling. When was the last time she ate?
She couldn’t remember. And she needed to eat, so that Stuart
could eat. With a heavy heart, Karla passed her screaming
son over to Beth. The noise was heart wrenching and Karla
wanted to burst into tears as she felt the weight leave her
Beth smiled at her and propped Stuart up in her arms. His
tiny little chin was resting on her shoulder as she began to
walk around the living room, gently whispering to him. Then
she realized Karla was still there.
“Go and eat some breakfast,
” she urged over the screams.
“You need it.”
Karla scuttled out of the room as fast as she could. She
hadn’t realized until she had her child just what it meant to
be protective over a small and vulnerable being. To see how
much he needed her and to love him unconditionally. It was
a humbling experience, and in spite of the crying Karla
wouldn’t change her son for the world.
