It’s always the dumb things that make the big events sink in. I can’t remember what randomness made me realize Scout and I were married – but last night I was fixing my address book and searched our last name and there was my name and Scout’s name. Like I haven’t seen this a million times. But something about seeing Scout’s name in my email takes me back to when we were early dating and the excitement of seeing mail from him.

Today we got Alex’s Social Security card in the mail. Same feeling of OMG WTF I’m the parent of someone, I have to be responsible for keeping track of someone’s social security card.
