Robbing the cradle???

A funny thing happened this weekend... Ezra's birthdad came for a visit. We have been emailing for 6 months now and so we were all happy to finally meet. He is a very nice and caring young man and we were happy to spend our weekend with him. But, because of the short notice of his trip out here, Blaine was stuck working most of the weekend and it was mostly just Bella, Ez and I hanging out with him. So, what to do all weekend with a 20 year old guy that I've just met? I thought he'd enjoy going with me to take Ezra's 6 month pictures and so I scheduled a portrait session at Target. We decided to also get some pics taken of Ez and his birthdad together as a gift to him. So, I explain to the Target people that we'll get some pics of Ez alone and some pics of the two guys together. They immediately start saying things like, "Dad, you look over here. Dad, do this." Well, that didn't bother me because, afterall, he is a dad in the technical meaning of the word. But, then they start saying things to me like, "Your husband this and your husband that." O.K. I'm pretty sure that I look like I'm in my 30's and Ezra's birthdad looks like he is barely 20. In addition, we had Bella with us who is 3 and a half years old. I am sure that the good folks at Target must have had an interesting conversation about us after we left. Afterall, if we really had been a couple, I should probably be in jail right about now.
Oh, and Happy 6 months to our sweet little Ez.

I always get that when I am with Kevin (18 year old that lives with us). It is too funny!

I am impressed with your kindness to a young man that you don't really have to include in your life.

I already have people thinking Steve is in HS so I know how it feels...kind of. That's too funny. Hope the visit went well. That would probably be a little strange at first though. Well, you were already robbing the cradle with Blaine so I guess it just is your style. Ha ha!

Take it as a compliment that you are so beautiful and look younger than you are!

That is really funny. Bless your heart for being so welcoming to him. So I'm sure you've seen Juno. Curious what you thought. I was really disappointed that they didn't include any realistic emotions about placing. But nice that she did place in the end I suppose.
