This is my first time to “link up” to a theme, so here we go! It came from one of my favy bloggers, Momma Kiss, and sounded fun! And therapeutic!
I think I really only have one today. It’s a biggy, but if I get this off my chest it means a much happier weekend for me, The Husband, and thus J.
I’m gonna flip off The Husband. Gasp! Horror! Can’t believe I’d flip him off in public? On a blog that he reads (sometimes)? In front of some of the people that he knows? And airing my dirty married life laundry?
Yeah! And I flip off the notion that I can’t flip The Husband off every once in a while. In public.
I could be a single mom if I had to. I could get myself ready for work in the morning, while I get J ready, get her bottles together, pack snacks for her, and get her cloth diapers put together all on my own. But I don’t necessarily WANT to do that. I don’t NEED his help, but it sure would be f-ing nice to have it. We're a team, dammit. And a pretty awesome team when we work together. Isn't that a big part of why you decide to spend the rest of your life with someone?
Don’t get me wrong, though. Most mornings he does help…if I ask…And I know every once in a while we all need a break from our routine. Fine. But don’t get pissy at me when I don’t come wake your ass up and you’re late for work. Don’t get pissy at me that I didn’t go out of my way to kiss you goodbye while you’re laying in in bed and I have a 20 pound toddler on one hip and a 15 pound diaper bag and purse on the other shoulder. And then, don’t come running out to my car, after I’m packed up and buckled in to tell me you forgot to tell me the daycare wanted 4 ounce bottles today instead of 6 ounce bottles. They’re already made! Then, don’t pout because I ask you to bring me the formula can to take with me so I can fix the bottles at the daycare. You won’t forget the can. I promise. Because you’ll know in the back of your mind all day long that if you do forget I’ll probably skin you alive.
So, I flip you off, dear wonderful husband, the love of my life.
Aaahhh…that’s much better! I'm already back to feeling blessed at having a wonderful husband…most days! ;)
Got any dirty laundry...um...I mean things you'd like to flip off? Maybe you'd like to flip off your dirty laundry...Do it. You know you wanna. You'll feel awesome afterwards.
