The husband shared this little exchange among he and the boys this morning:
(Background info: Jay Bruce and Brandon Phillips are players for the Cincinnati Reds.)
The Lad is wearing his Jay Bruce shirt and is quite pleased. The Lad: Bruce shirt the husband: You like your Bruce shirt? The Lad: Bruce defense. the husband: Yeah, Bruce does play good defense. The Lad: Uh, huh The Boy (whose favorite player is Gold Glove second baseman Brandon Phillips): He didn't win a Golden Glove though. the husband: He should have. The Lad (nodding): Glove too.
And then the husband's heart exploded with pride.... He was so cute, grinning like it was Opening Day when he told me this story. And then he had to share it on Facebook.
Hillary and Michelle began their friendship in college talking about guys, parties and, occasionally, the future.
Without planning it, their husbands each proposed on the same day in 2005, and in 2008, both couples had their first child. Hillary, who lives in Florida, had The Boy in January, and Michelle, who lives in Ohio, had Peanut in July. The Lad, Hillary's second child, arrived Christmas Day 2009. Roughly a year later, Michelle's second little girl made her debut.
Now their conversations revolve around not raising brats while working full time.
