Babies on the Brain

A friend is about to have her baby, so I forced Dan to go to Babies R' Us with me.

This was my second time there in 2 days. The first time, the registry was not working and they kept insisting to me that my friend didn't have a registry there. Or maybe I didn't know how to spell her name correctly. Yes, I would buy a gift for a woman whose name I didn't know how to spell. Moron.

Anyway, as I was a little creepily stroking the ultra plush fake fur swadding blankets, I announced to Dan that I was ready to give procreation a go.

There was a beat of silence.

I'm sure his brain was spinning, trying to figure out a way to gently ask me if I had lost my mind without it seeming like he was crushing my ovary-produced dreams. Then, a slight flicker of hope appeared in his eyes.

"Are you saying this because you want to buy cute baby stuff?"

You know me well, Husband. You know me well.

What could be cuter?
Especially if it was swaddled in faux fur.
