Who Loves Ya, Baby?

Kojak coined the phrase, "Who loves ya, baby?" as part of his shtick during the 70s television show of the same name as his. After 35 years I am no longer my mom's baby but another person's. Well not in the same sense but more in the sense that there is someone out there who wants the job of taking care of me. It's sort of like the Olympic torch of life, you get handed off to someone else, especially if you are a woman. I don't view this as anything more than the affection of a very lovely man who wants to dedicate part of his life to me. He doesn't want to control or handle me but rather cares and worries about me as part of his life now. As the former diva of domesticity would say, "It's a good thing."
