Gifts From The One You Love

October 27, 2011 By: Lynn Category: My Husband, Simple Humour

Do you receive gifts from your significant other very often?  Well, I was just talking to my husband on the phone, who is at work.  As we were humming and hodding about how bored we both were, even though I have a 101 things to do, I mentioned to him that he had to stop and get bread for our daughter’s lunch tomorrow.

Me, “Hun, this is critical, you can’t forget, or she’s not eating tomorrow.”

Him, “I know, I know.”

Me, “While you are at it, you haven’t bought me flowers in years,   (that’s right, it’s not a typo, YEARS, how many you ask, thinking I might not know six years!!!!  Can you imagine!  Anyways, that’s something I let go of years ago.)   maybe you’d like to buy me some.  I did birth your two watermelon head children.”

Him, “You got flowers a couple of years ago from me.”

No word of lie, he was outside mowing the lawn and picked me a bouquet of weeds.  Not the weed you smoke, at least that may have been fun, but real long grass weeds, and they were stinky weeds.  Needless to say, I think that he owns me flowers!!

What’s your favorite kind of flower?  Do you get flowers often?  I may get jealous, but tell me the truth!!

“I Don’t Do That…”A Typical Quote That My Husband Says On A Regular Basis.

September 25, 2011 By: Lynn Category: My Daughter, My Husband, Pet Peeves, Simple Humour

If you are in a relationship or are married then you have probably heard that annoying phrase, “I don’t do that,” out of their mouth.  This is a quote that I hear on a regular basis.  There seems to be a lot of things that my significant other won’t can’t do.  Now you may be one of those extremely delusional  lucky women/men that think that you balance each other out and that they may not do something at the moment you ask them to, but they make up for in other ways.  Well, if that is you then I am happy *rolling my eyes* that you have that kind of support system, but for me in my house, that kind of support just doesn’t exist.

This morning I was getting my daughter ready for school, so feeling a little overwhelmed I was yelling asking my husband nicely to get back out of bed to change the baby’s diaper and get him dressed so that we could take our daughter to school.  So as a typical morning I am doing my daughter’s hair and asked my husband to put the baby’s shoes and socks on, well he pipes up,

 “I don’t do shoes.” 

Wwhhaatt!??  That make no sense to me!!@! 

Husband, do you wear shoes?” 

 ”Um, well, yay,” 

“well then you do shoes!!” 

Lord grant me the strength.  “I don’t do shoes,”  can you imagine, if I could get away with the phrase, “I don’t do that, “ then I am pretty sure that I would be on a permanent vacation on a tropical resort, being served by hot  half naked men.  These are some others that I hear quite often,  I don’t change diapers, I don’t do laundry, I don’t do silverware, I don’t cook like you and I don’t want to screw it up, that one is special.   All I know is that my son will NOT be following in his father’s footsteps.  ;)   Whomever gets my boy will be indebted to me forever!

Do you have any funny yet annoying phrase that your husband or significant other says to you?  Do you have a “I don’t do that,” example?

What Is The Fascination With Public Toilets?

September 11, 2011 By: Lynn Category: Annoying Traits, Bad Habits, My Daughter, Pet Peeves, Simple Humour

What Is The Fascination With Public Toilets?  I find myself giggling while writing this post because it is such an every-other-day occurrence.  My daughter LOVES and I can’t even stress that enough…..loves public toilets. 

We aren’t in a store very long before she starts to do the pee dance.  She longs to go into public washrooms.  I’m not quite sure what her fascination is with them but she just can’t help herself.

Personally, I think that it is massively annoying, especially considering that I have the baby now.  Before, it was mildly amusing simular to the article I wrote about , when my husband chews gum, and sneezes three times.  It’s strangely funny like that.

My daughter loves going to public toilets, if you want to see a child’s eyes light up, then you should know that she also loves port-a-potties.  Now mind you, I know you are reading this and you are probably saying to yourself, “do they really let her go to all these washrooms….all the time?”  Well, we don’t but the point is, when she even catches a glimpse of them, it’s like her radar goes into overload and she’s acts like a dog at a fire hydrant.

Anyways, as funny as it is, it’s still annoying.  *smirk*  Do you or someone you know have a fascination with public bathrooms?  Most people don’t want to go into them, but you haven’t met my daughter!!
