Went above and beyond the call of parenting duty tonight and made dinner with a theme. And that theme was "Things That Are Cut Up". Then we went to Baskin-Robbins and I got 'em sundaes guaranteed to sugar 'em up enough that they'll never ever sleep again.

PLUS, I actually fixed a sink drain today, which is HUGE. Generally I let Jason be the 'handy' one, whereas I am more normally referred to as the 'lazy' one.

In short, I expect my nomination for the prestigious, if little known, Nobel Prize In Husbanding is currently winging it's way to Oslo even as I type.

Congratulations! You have earned the Husband Merit Badges for Plumbing & Healthy Meal Preparation!

Note: successful applications for the Husband Medal of Honour do not ask why the healthy meal preparation badge pictures a caustic solvent. Secret ninja babysitting technique.

The badges are lovely, of course, and I thank you. But now I have to sew them onto my Husbandie sash, and the sash always covers up the punchline on my clever t-shirts, plus people tend to look at me funny when I'm wearing it. So I think I'll continue to aim for that million dollar prize that comes with the Nobel.

You should bill yourself as the handsome one instead. ;)

No, no, see, the 'lazy' one is perfect. Hollie's friends see me lying around doing nothing all the time, and one whispers to another "why in the world does she put up with him?" and the second one whispers back, "he must be incredible in bed, there's just no other explanation" and then they nod knowingly at each other.

This exact conversation happens at every single social gathering. I assume.

Yes honey. It totally does. EVERY SINGLE ONE.

I myself have participated in that same conversation at least four or five times. True story.

Um... I mean. Yes, I thought so. Perfectly logical conversation to have, after all.

I want the "like" button for this comment. Also for the post. Sounds like you definitely deserve that Nobel prize. ;)
