Mommy Memos: Husbands
I got a call at work yesterday from my husband. Just so you know, this man is hardly ever grouchy. You know how there’s one person in the relationship who’s just a little meaner than the other one? I know that person is me…but with good reason!
Anyhoo, back to the subject. I believe his exact words were, “are you ever going to go to the store? We’re out of breakfast food.” I’ll spare you the ensuing argument, but really, Mike? I am not there in the morning. How in the hell am I supposed to know we need more breakfast food? And what is breakfast food? When I went home I found an entire pantry full of food. A refridgerator full of fruit, milk, etc. I guess since we are out of bread and eggo waffles it’s a problem. And why is it just my responsibility to do all the shopping? I work too. I have kids and housework when I get home. Are his legs broken?
I know I said I was going to spare you the details…oops! But I do feel better!
Then I find out that Emma forgot to tell us she needs a sack lunch for her field trip. I got home and asked Mike what he sent. Here’s the menu. Leftover pizza, mashed potatoes, a fruit rollup, Girl Scout cookies , water and a Sprite. Once again, I am left asking, really, Mike? Mashed potatoes…on a field trip? And I guess a fruit rollup counts as a serving of fruit.
Come to find out, mashed potatoes are awesome, and all the kids were impressed. Emma shared her lunch with a friend who forgot his. She gave him the pizza and Sprite. I know she’s related to her father, because I am AGAIN left asking, why? Why would she eat the potatoes and water, when she could have pizza and a Sprite? I love that girl. I know why she did it, it’s because she has the biggest heart in the world. As for her father…I guess I will just have to keep asking, why?
