On Colorblindness

When our extended family is together, it's just as likely for an aunt or an uncle to be caring for a child as it is for his mom or dad to be holding him. This is precisely what was happening the other day: I was carrying my nephew wrapped in a towel, legs dangling loosely below, while my sister watched as Miss I splashed in the tub.
Brother-in-law saw the towel/legs I had in my arms and asked "Is that yours or mine?"
"Yours," I answered matter-of-factly. "Mine's black."

I know "love is colorblind" is a detrimental family mentality, but in his case -- I really think he might be color blind.

Or, maybe he's just overwhelmed with 3. (consider that when thinking about expanding)
