This is good for wives to know....

When you walk in from getting your 18 month old dressed, and you are a bit frazzled and running a bit late, and you see your three year old eating red jello on your custom upholstered chair for breakfast.

Two things.

One, don't tell your husband that red jello isn't an appropriate breakfast food. And two, don't tell him that eating RED jello on an expensive chair isn't appropriate either.

That would just be "bitching for no reason."

I thought I would pass that little tidbit of advice on to you.

You are welcome.

What would my husband think of me, though, if I were not telling him he were doing something wrong?

I had one of those mornings too. Ryan handed Hagen (21 month old) a corn bread muffin on our way out to go to daycare. Mind you I take him...

I glared at Ryan as to tell him to go to hell and left. Hagen proceeded to mush the muffing instantly while in his carseat and it just crumbled to a mess of well, crumbs. ALL OVER HIMSELF, CAR SEAT, MY CAR...ugh.

He was still crying when I dropped him off because he wanted another muffin. So Ryan, you can take him from now on and I'll give him so ice cream. What? you don't like to take him because you feel bad? Oh, and I like to take him especially when he is crying when I am leaving...such a great start to the day.

Sorry ladies...I don't have a blog and I had to vent...

I constantly am asking my MIL if she dropped my hubby on his head when he was little... she says no of course, but I don't believe her :)

lifeinbeverlyhills said...

Guilty. I do it too - bitching for no reason. But you see, there usually IS a reason. Just not justifiable in his mind.

The Jones' said...

I tagged you on my blog... check it out!

KDLOST said...

LOL

oh, i would totally go ape-poop.

hubby knows this. :)

Sassy Cass said...

Precisely the reason red jello isn't allowed in my house at all.:) Did the chair survive?

Belle (from Life of a...) said...

A friend of mine's sister came home late one afternoon to find her nine year old sound asleep. She asked her husband if the child was sick because she NEVER sleeps in the afternoon. He replied that he didn't think she was sick...they got home from school and he told her to get a snack and start her homework. She asked if she could have lemonade and he said SURE. She drank a bottle of lemonade...Mike's Hard Lemonade and promptly fell asleep. Men are so dumb sometimes!

MamaSue said...

Rick's sister says his mother carried him for 11 months and that is the problem. After 8 years of bitching my husband still let's Sydney eat breakfast on the sofa and watch Sponge Bob (who I hate). It is always followed up with "Daddy said I could"!

Soxy Deb said...

Oh no he di'int!!?? It'd be on like Donkey Kong.

Holy crap... I know its wrong, but I cannot stop laughing at the post from Belle.. I just read it to my husband and he is hysterical too!

Coco said...

Belle, I have to agree with Shannon, that tops it.
I think I would turn Hubby into CPS myself!!

Lulu the Midwife said...

Red jello I can live with. Eating on my custom chair, hmmm, No. That is why I have hardwood floors. Eat the jello in the floor, not my good chair. I am just glad things like this happen to everyone.

whereismymind said...

Yep, no red jello in my house, either. EVER. My poor, deprived kids....
