SITS Back to Blogging - Day Three - ! A Post With a Title I Am Proud Of - Do They Make "The Club" For Kidney Lizards?

This week, I am participating in the Back to Blogging event, over at SITS. By doing so, I have a chance to give Thelma and Louise a new home! Not the two wacko chicks in the convertible,  but an awesomely beautiful washer and dryer combo from Electrolux! This event is sponsored by Standards of Excellence, Westar Kitchen and Bath, and Florida Builder Appliances.Anyway, here goes...

I'm proud of this title because it's clever and witty. Anger tends to bring that out in me. LOL

Do They Make "The Club" For Kidney Lizards?

 I browsed their product line and had no luck finding one. Hubs really needs one. Either that or a chain and padlock. Something... Because, apparently, his wee-wee has spent the last few years making babies without his knowledge. Poor fella, I guess it just waited to hear him snore at night and crept to my side of the bed without him ever being the wiser.
  I discovered this last night after I hung up from a phone conversation with my sister. She had called to discuss the baby shower she is hosting on Sunday and to say "HOLY CRAP!", as she had just read the post about Selly's plans to kill me etc...
  He asked, " Was something wrong?"
 "Nah, she was just calling to talk about the menu for Sunday"
 "Yeah, Sunday, that's when the baby shower is."
 "You going?"
 "Well, of course. I made the diaper cake, am making the real cake, and I am helping set                    everything up."  
  " What are you going to do with the kids?" { meaning the 2 smallest kids, 5 and 21 months}
  " I'm taking them with me."
      Now, maybe because I am sleep deprived or maybe because I was in deep thought about cake decor, I totally didn't catch on to his question right away. Like 15 minutes later, as I was making a cup of coffee, my brain suddenly screamed, " EXCUSE ME? DID HE JUST ASK WHAT YOU WERE GOING TO DO WITH THE KIDS?!!!!!" Yes, Brain, he did... I went back into the living room and asked him,
  "Honey, did you ask me what I was going to do with the kids while I go to the baby shower on        Sunday?"
   "No. I asked if you wanted me to watch them while you go."
    Bull! He just heard that tone in my voice and knew that was the only safe answer. I find it so strange that even though he and I BOTH have children, I am the only one that needs to get clearance and find a sitter, in order to leave the house. He, on the other hand, can come and go as he pleases, without the least concern as to who will be minding the children. And when he does keep them for a short time, he acts as though he is doing me a favor.


  1. I feel this way too sometimes. It is like child care person on my list and ask me to help when needed on his. He is a great dad. He just doesn't always get that it is on his list too.

  2. When you keep the kids its just another mom home with her kids as she "should be." But when he keeps the kids, low and behold, you've got a babysitter!!

    Erks me tOO!

    Saw you on SITS and the title of your blog caught my eye. My Granny used to sing, "A bushel and a peck. A bushel and a peck! A bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck!" ...as she squeeze the poot out of me. I miss her terribly :(
    But...I'm following you! Come see me if you dare to do the Mambo!

  3. My hubby just told me the other day that he would "babysit our spawn" I slapped him.

  4. Lol! At least he is very aware of where you were at when you came back and asked him to repeat himself! Stopping in from SITS! :>

  5. Very nice. I didn't know that Electrolux made a combo washer dryer. I have a Thor combo - www.thorappliances.com - and love it.

  6. Great to know I'm not the only one! : ) I guess it is just second nature for the mother and maybe not so much, for a lot of dads. I know that I don't even feel comfortable hopping into the shower, unless I make certain that he knows I will be M.I.A. for a few minutes and that he needs to watch the kids.

    Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Ahhh yes I remember those days. But in his defense(and you won't hear me defend them often) they really don't know what they are doing and it is scary to be the boss!
    Anyways, you know if you leave him in charge for even 5 minutes you will come back to a trashed house! Been there and done that.

  8. Just visited your blog for the first time... sooo funny & so true!
    Has there ever been a father that hasn't had to be reminded that he is also the parent to HIS children?Where are men's brains? Oh yeah... it just crawled over to the other side of the bed! : )
