That thing they do…

Published: Thursday, August 28, 2014 at 09:13 AM.

Sitting in my beach chair on the beautiful white sands of the Florida Panhandle’s Gulf Coast, I was studying the fine art of women carrying babies on their hip.


You know, “That thing they do” when they put a hip out and carry a baby or toddler around.  It is actually quite amazing.  There is an art to it that no man could ever successfully emulate.


I will admit that many of these mamas were wearing two-piece bathing suits which did nothing but add to the beauty of the task.


However, a bikini is by no means a requirement to successfully and artfully do this “mama hip thing.”  Ladies in one-piece bathing suits did it well, women with pretty tattoos and even more importantly – grandmothers.
