I think we’re funny

Dude. Where’s my arm?

I love this t-shirt. It makes me happy. I’ve waited for Jordan to grow into it and immediately made her play on the floor so I could take a picture. Silly me.

Jordan was up really late Wednesday night, so she slept in late. Past 9am! I was luckily working later into the day so I just let her sleep while I worked at home. We had a Parents as Teacher’s meeting where Jordan got to show off her communication skills and amazing fine motor skills. She’s amazing to watch.

I had a busy day at a conference on campus. Jordan got to attend this conference dinner last year because she was young and I wasn’t ready to start pumping yet. She also went with me for another conference last May. So lots of people were asking about her. I pulled out the camera and showed off this picture. I’d have to say, not as many people have the sense of humor I have.

But the funny thing is… If I took the t-shirt off, would her arm suddenly appear? No. So why not keep a sense of humor? Why not proudly display my beautiful baby? And why not happily display the fact that I’m happy just the way she is… With a dose of humor.

The good news? The newsroom loved the shirt. Jordan’s school loved the shirt. And those are the places where Jordan is the most… And I’m glad the people I’m around the most are comfortable with our world just the way it is.
