Movie Star

This afternoon, Remo and I took Auro to the university. We had told some of the staff that we were coming, so they were expecting us. What happened was like a scene from a movie: people literally ran out of their offices to see the blue-eyed baby. Cameras (=mobile phones) were flashing everywhere. And before we knew it, Auro was being passed from person to person. It didn't take long, though, before Auro lost sight of his mother and his bottom lip started trembling. And then the tears came.
Almost as soon as he was in my arms again, he calmed down and after some minutes he even felt safe enough to look around him and see himself surrounded by many unfamiliar, but friendly faces.
All the excitement made our movie star tired and on the way home he fell asleep. I didn't want to wake him, so, without taking of his coat, I put him on the sofa as quietly as I could and there he slept for another 15 minutes!
