You Know You've Been Married Nearly Ten Years And Have Had A Few Children ...

If...

... late at night, in the middle of a serious discussion about an important matter that you have very strong feelings about; and just after you have eloquently (you think) and accurately described your position and explained the complexity of your emotions in a powerfully clear (you think) single sentence...

Then...

...your husband's eyes focus on an object across the room as a wave of understanding passes through them. He motions with his pointed finger as though he is about to make an important statement,

"There's the wipes!" he says, "I was looking for those all day."

And the response is...

...brief silence.

Followed by both of you melting into peels of laughter.

Why is it the wipes are never where you last put them but are always available for tripping over when you least expect it?

Too funny! Don't you love those little married moments that only you & your very best friend-of-the-heart can share?
