but as I was looking at a friend's picture on Facebook just now, I started laughing. Then I laughed harder. Giggles, chortles and some mighty guffaws.
I know there's a fine line between hilarious and hysteria. I may have inched a bit too close to that line just now.
But I swear---once you hear my reason, and if you're the mother of more than one child AND you're not overly OCD, you'll understand. I promise.
The picture that made me laugh was of a tiny infant, wrapped so beautifully in a blanket, sporting a lacey headband and bow. Only her perfectly sweet face was visible. She was swaddled and laying on a shelf. Next to her were some nicely folded pink blankets and on the shelf below her were two gorgeous baskets decorated with pink fabric with large brown polka dots.
Inside these two baskets were disposable diapers, all lined up in rows. It was so sweet and perfect and I laughed.
Can you guess the reason?
My husband did. I showed the picture to him and asked him if he knew why it had made me laugh.
I love that man for getting me so thoroughly. I'm not sure it bodes well for his sanity---but I do love him.
And now...back to the hysteria.
