Blue came home with his arms piled high with backpacks, duffle bags and boxes all filled with police gear. You should have seen the grin on his face as he opened everything up and tried it on.
The kids and I were at a little coffee shop this morning while Blue was getting outfitted. A cop walked in and The Boy flipped out, straining his neck to get a good view. Waffle kept saying, "Mommy, look, a police officer!!" I told them that's what their daddy would look like when we got home.
Blue walked out in his full-on gear and The Boy got all sheepish. He didn't quite know what to do, excited and a bit apprehensive at the same time.
It's weird to think that in just a little while all of this will be Blue's normal.
