Last night as we were going to sleep, I noticed a familiar photo on Scout’s computer. It was the banner to Alex Year One. I don’t know if he’s ever read it before, I’m thinking not, because he turned the pages and scrolled down the pages and spent time reading it.
As far as I can remember, Scout’s never read anything I’ve written. Save for a very excellent parody of “A Few Good Men” we wrote a few years back called “Some Really Okey Dokey People”.
I didn’t say anything when I noticed him reading, I didn’t ask him what he thought. Mostly I was just really touched that at the end of the day, after hearing me yap on about whatever is on my mind, that he values me enough to then *READ* whatever is on my mind. Months of whatever is on my mind in one sitting.
Like I said, I’m not so hot with the saying I love yous. I hope he also read between the lines of what I’ve written to see the real life love story there, even if it is covered in little boy pee and surrounded by diapers and dirty laundry.
