A Quotable Moment and A Funny Story

September 20, 2011

A couple humorous things happened over the weekend that are worth recording for my own memories and I thought you all might get a laugh or a smile out of them too.

A few nights ago, we were all in bed (dogs included, of course) and I was feeding the baby before turning out the light. Jeff had fallen asleep beside me, but got up to use the bathroom as I was putting a sleeping Sam in his bassinet next to our bed. When Jeff got back into bed, the following conversation ensued:

Me: I love you, babe.
Jeff: What?
Me: I love you.
Jeff: What?
Me: I love you.
Jeff: Why are you telling me this?
Me: ‘Cause.
Jeff: Okay, I love you too.

Then he rolled over and turned out the light. I recounted this story to him the next night and he had absolutely no memory of the conversation or even of getting up to go to the bathroom.

The next incident occurred at our annual church picnic on Sunday afternoon. I often wear Sam in our stretchy wrap when we’re out and about and I want to be hands free and have a happy baby. A lady with whom I am only generally acquainted came up to me and said that she saw me from across the yard and thought I had a giant tumor on my chest! Sam doesn’t have much hair to speak of and we have the same skin tone. The wrap is also a light tan color and I had a cardigan over it. She went on to explain that as she moved closer she began to see what was going on and then I turned a bit and she could see clearly that the “tumor” was just a baby head poking out. She assured me that she was greatly relieved that I didn’t have a giant tumor.

    I, too, am very glad you don’t have a giant tumor.
