So, how are the Mom's?

My sister-in-law Kristie is one of my best friends. Even if we weren't related I would need her in my life. She helps me be more spiritual, a better wife and mom and I can make her laugh so hard she almost pee's her pants. Case in point: her little baby Ethan was quite sick last week with a fever that had no cause. No other symptoms like an earache or anything. Well, when a 3 month old runs a high fever with no symptoms doctors don't like that. To make a long story a bit shorter, she ended up with Ethan down to Primary Children's emergency room. Her husband was out of town so I went with her. We get there and she hands me Ethan so she can talk to the receptionist. I was worried, thus I had a worried expression on my face. Kris was worried to and I kept telling her it was okay. I'm pretty sure I put my arm around her or touched her knee in a re-assuring manner. NOT, I repeat, not at all like a lesbian. However, every single person who helped her thought I was the other mom. Serioulsy. Someone asked "US" if we had insurance. Then the dr came in and asked how the 'Moms' were. I was about dying and wanting so badly to lean over and kiss Kristie. I didn't want to say anything because she wasn't in a joking mood. But I couldn't help it. After the dr left I thanked her for being my lesbian life partner. We laughed so hard. So hard. Not to make fun of lesbians. Just, well, picturing me as her life partner was just too much. We could have really gotten the staff going thinking we were. But I decided I better not. Just way too much fun in an emergency room. (PS, little Ethan is okay. )

Seriously?! People used to always think Whitney and I were lesbians... I'm pretty sure it was because of all the teenage girl hand-holding.
