I have this incredibly amazing boyfriend. Being with him is like being in a dream that I don't want to wake up from. I can't even begin to describe the sense of security I feel when he holds me in his arms. He is wonderful with my kids, and I have never seen a father more passionate about being involved in raising his own children. He. Is. Perfect.
Except for one teensy-weensy little thing.
He is a thief....a sock thief.
The following is a copy of an email from his ex-wife that he forwarded to me:
I found a pair of purple socks from your house under daughter's bed today. I washed them and will put them in the clothing bag when I drop them off at daycare on Thursday.
Below is a list of items that I have sent to your house recently and have not received back. Please look through your household and return any you may still have in the clothing bag on Friday when you drop the kids off at daycare.

Is. She. Fucking. Serious?!
She has a spread sheet with all the kid's socks inventoried. She checks off which socks she send with them to his house, and marks them off when they come back. She NUMBERS their socks for shit's sake!!! Bitch, get a life! You could be spending time with your kids instead of worrying about whether or not Tim might have an extra sock! You know what I do when the kids can't find matching socks? Not a damn thing. My socks never match, why should theirs? Hell, I don't even fold the socks when I wash them; I just throw them all in one big basket and it's a self-serve sock free-for-all. And sometimes, when I don't have time to hunt up the socks and do the laundry...
I just go buy more socks...
