Tonight my husband turned to me and said, “I can’t believe we have a baby.”
(I was balancing a wobbly, but standing Henry on my legs.)
“I know,” I said. “It’s weird huh?”
“Yeah I had no idea when we spoke for the first time over a
Pac-Man Bubble Bobble game that I would have a baby with you.”
“If I told you we’d be making a baby the night we met, you’d have run for the hills.”
“You’d have run too.”
“Yup,” I said.
“That was the beauty of the situation,” Joe said. “Neither one of us was trying too hard.”
“Yeah. I wasn’t out combing bars looking for my babydaddy.”
“And I wasn’t like Cute Girl. Must get her number.”
“No, I got your number.”
“And I gave you a baby.”
This day two years ago today I married Joe. Happy anniversary darling. I love you like a computer nerd loves
Pac-Man Bubble Bobble, which means more than you will ever know.
