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