Apparently Emmitt is destined to be one of those old men sitting in the chairs in the center of the mall walkways, holding their wives purse.

A few days back Nora came in and asked if she could carry my purse around. I said sure. Five minutes later, in wandered Emmitt wearing the purse around his neck. While I applaud her creativity in finding a pack mule, it did make things a tad more complicated when he fell asleep in the living room.

In fact, he ended up passed out, face down with the purse still around his neck about twenty minutes after I took this photo. Amazingly, I managed to remove the purse, pick him up, get him in his room, change his diaper, get him in bed and cover him up without him waking up.

    Smart aleck post alert:

    Apparently Emmitt is going to be a polygamist and his wives are all going to share a purse. What is your parenting philosophy again?
