A Letter to My Husband

Have you ever just wanted to write your husband a letter, or better yet; just tell him off? Maybe, some of you are blessed to have the amazing husbands that clean up at home, help attentively with the kids and don’t drive you even crazier than you already are! Me, I’m well….. let’s just say I have the husband that God saw fit to give me. Lol. There are days that I come home completely exhausted from work and I still must figure it all out, while my husband seems to be way too tired from his hardworking job!! So, if I could write him a letter it would go like this….. 

Dear Husband, 

 Where I totally understand that you work oh so hard, I just wanted to remind you that so do I. I’m not sure if you remember, but this morning I woke up and got dressed for work too, and right after I finished getting me dressed I got a cranky three your old dressed as well. I stood in the bathroom while he peed and brushed his teeth, when I really needed to make the bed and start his quick breakfast. No worries though, because once he finished I did all of that! 

I went to work and worked all day, just like you! I had to both listen to and resolve the problems of an entire caseload with a smile. And, when my supervisor asked me to do something 5 minutes before it was time to go, I did that too. Don’t fret though, I still made it to pick up our son and as soon as he got into the car I listened to all of his stories and was able to resolve where his missing Spider-Man was. 

When I walked into the house door, I wasn’t greeted by cheer, but the pressure of preparing for the morning. I packed a lunch, prepared bath time, completed homework and learning time, cooked dinner, and wiped up crumbs that both you and my stepson seem to not see on the island or floor after you eat. I also, swept the kitchen floor up to clear away any extra food that was dropped and emptied the overflowing kitchen trash can that is only visible to me. Once all my maid duties were done I read a story to our son and tried to watch a part of something on television before drifting off to sleep.  

I’m sure you’re wondering the purpose of this letter. The next time you want some special adult time or wonder why Mom is in such a funk, read this until you figure it out!  

Love

Your Wife

LOL!!! Sometimes we just need to get a few things off our chest. When you want to kill you husbands next time Monumentals, just write a little letter for yourself. If you’re feeling bold go ahead and leave it on his pillow. Just don’t be alarmed if he doesn’t really get it! Lol

Toddler Talk

I’m sure that all parents can relate to this topic that small kids and toddlers will say whatever comes to their mind, no matter the time or place! Theses little guys have no filter. When Kodie gets diarrhea of the mouth, he mostly says things that are mean and or inappropriate.

Sometimes, I’m so nervous when we are in public because he literally says whatever pops into his mind! Kodie has been fighting a virus so we have been back and forth to the doctors. While waiting in the lobby the other day he began pointing and said “Mom what’s that?” I started naming actual things such as the water fountain a picture etc. hoping that it would end there! I was praying that he wasn’t talking about the woman across from us. Yup, he surely was calling a person a that! He doesn’t understand that people are not called that and that everyone is not a him LOL. The woman said “are you talking to me?” and Kodie said yes, the woman was really nice and told him her name and asked him his. None the less, I was so mortified!

 

On another occasion we were in a super market and he was in the cart, we rode by an older woman and for some reason he thought it was appropriate to say eww eww! I was so embarrassed, I pushed the cart as fast as possible and just hoped that she didn’t hear him. To this day, I still don’t know what the problem was.

Also, another time while in the doctors office while the medical assistant asked us questions, Kodie just needed to know if his Aunt Kevia had her bra! Mind you-she wasn’t even there……really?! For some reason he has a fascination with bras and he always wants to know if I have my bra on LOL! When Kodie isn’t talking he’s growling and roaring at people! Sometimes, if Kodie is in one of his moods he will growl and roar at people when they speak to him. He spends a lot of time perfecting his roar and he even gives me lessons LOL! There is literally never a dull moment with a toddler around.
