Because he asked

Him: “When are you going to write a new blog post?”

Me: (Silence)

Him: “‘Cause I go to your blog to look at pictures of Alice.”

Me: (Silence)

Him: “And that same post has been there forever. It’s just Mustard Pork Chops every time I check.”

Me: “What about Facebook?”

Him: “Facebook is too distracting. I like going to your blog.”

Dear husband,

Here is the blog post you requested. I am so glad you love our daughter so much, and it thrills me that you like looking at pictures of her while you’re at work. The joy you take in her is a joy to me! Your request did not fall on deaf ears. Here’s our little one. Isn’t she great!?!?

Love,

Me

    I saw a lot of these on FB but missed the expressive eyebrows one, which might be my fave. So funny and cute! I’m glad Adam asked b/c I enjoy the Alice pics too and don’t get on FB too often. Keep ’em comin’.
