Vindication

So once upon a time, I spent money buying clothes for children I do not yet have and Joe, in response, proclaimed this to be crazy.  I've been keeping the little treasures in a shopping bag on the top shelf of my closet.  Joe came down this past weekend to help me move.  One of the reasons I keep him around is to reach stuff up high and hand it to me. 

Joe:  Here's a bag of pictures.

me:  I need to sort those and put them in frames and albums.

Joe:  Here's blankets.

me:  Got 'em.

Joe:  Purses.

me:  Be gentle.

Joe:  Here's our baby's clothes.

me:  [silence]

Long pause

me:  You realize what you just said?

Joe:  I'd prefer not to acknowledge it.

As I have always known, he talks a big game but inside he's all rainbows, butterflies, tears and feathers.  Baby lover.

I think most of them are. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm gathering you are a law student - my daughter just finished 1L, is that right? She keeps telling me but true to form, I keep forgetting.
