The wonder of it all

One night a woman found her husband standing over their newborn baby's crib.

Silently she watched him. As he stood looking down at the sleeping infant, she saw on his face a mixture of emotions: disbelief, doubt, delight, amazement, enchantment, skepticism.

Touched by his unusual display of deep emotions, she felt her eyes grow moist. She slipped her arms around her husband.

"A penny for your thoughts," she lovingly whispered in his ear.

"It's amazing!" he replied. "I just can't see how anybody can make a crib like that for only $49.95!"
