A Quid Pro Quo

We have a great church family. 

They have been preparing meals for us since Daniel’s arrival. 

It’s been a huge help to not have to think about dinner. But, something occurred to me yesterday. Maybe there’s something more to this meal prep. 

Maybe it’s not really about helping us out. 

Maybe it’s just about seeing the baby.

You see, preparing food gives you a first class ticket into our home where you can see and possibly hold the baby. 

I don’t know why I didn’t realize this before. It’s an obvious ploy.*

I mean, would you really prepare a meal for someone just out of the goodness of your heart? Come on. Who’s that nice?

I’m glad I finally figured it out. Now we can call it what it really is: a quid pro quo. We give you access to the baby, you give us food. It’s that simple.

Now, I wonder if there’s a way to keep this free food thing going…

Do we need to have another baby?

*This is just a joke. I know people want to help out of the goodness of their hearts. A big thank you to everyone who has provided meals. We love you.
