a debt

I decided to get decked out this morning with my three pieces of baby jewelry. The gift I received from my beloved after our little blond Rufus was born is a gorgeous sapphire and diamond bracelet.

The Hunter noticed it immediately because I don't wear it that often (I don't know why. I am vowing to wear it more often). He asked where the bracelet was from and I explained the story.

"Daddy gave it to me to thank me for giving him Rufus." I explained.

"What did you give him?" he asked.

"His boys!" I explained. "You all grew in my body and I gave birth to you."

"Yeah, but mom, he gave you the sperm!"

"Oh sorry, you're right. I should get him a thank you gift for that,
shouldn't I?"

I guess I am glad my nine year old still thinks sperm contribution is a big sacrifice for creating a family.

Wait... there's such a thing as getting gifts for giving birth? I think my husband missed that memo.

That bracelet is gorgeous!

I showed the "sperm" comment to my husband and he said, "Sounds like something Kenyon would say." So I think there's been a little indoctrination on Daddy's part. ;)

from someone who has been delivering babies to SCREAMING women for the past week (approximately 10+ in the last 5 days!) i think this is the most hysterical comment i've ever heard.

ps the stream video is hilarious :)
