For lack of any grandchildren....

I am apt to smile at little tots and babies when I'm out and about in public. Today I was in the grocery store and a mom with a couple of tots in the grocery cart (upper portion where children sit) was going by me, and I particularly noticed the younger brother, a babe of maybe a year and a half at most. He was looking straight at me so I gave him a big smile and a little wave. His mother turned the corner to the next aisle in the produce section, so I could still see him over the mounds of vegetables and he kept looking at me but with the sweetest smile! OMG, I practically melted! I can't tell you how much that smile just made my day!
So that is what I must do to get my substitute grandma jollies from stranger's little tots...babies in particular! My kids (all getting way older now...way older)...don't know if they will ever be parents...all four of them, for heaven's sake!
Anyway.... I know not all of you here are grandparents...anyone here delight in the sweet smiles of other people's babies?
