The New Born

Once there was a woman who had a baby at the age of 85. The neighbor lady across the street was thrilled to see the baby and mama return home from the hospital in perfect health. Later, the lady ventured across the street to ask to see the newborn babe. She knocked on the door and heard the new mama call out, "Come on in. It's open." So she went on in. She asked the older lady if she could see the baby and the older woman replied, "You can see it in a minute. The baby is sleeping." So they proceeded to have some tea and cookies.

Later, the younger lady looked at her watch and realized that the time had gotten away from them. So, she asked again if she could see the baby. This time the older woman seemed to be a little annoyed. Finally the younger woman said, "I really don't understand why you will not let me see the baby. It has been three hours and I am still waiting to see it."

With that the older woman replied, "I know you have been here for quite some time and have showed remarkable patience with me. The truth is I keep hoping the baby will wake up and start to cry so I can remember where I put it!"
