My Wife Just Said… [Got milk]

Posted by on September 13th, 2018, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

This would have been a funny, slightly dysfunctional Got Milk ad. Well, it would have been funnier if I wasn’t living it, and having to drive back to the grocery store for a single item. One thing I was never prepared for in parenthood is the mind-boggling number of times I’ve gone to a grocery […]

How Home Tasks ACTUALLY Get Done

Posted by on June 22nd, 2018, under INSTRUCTIONAL DIAGRAMS, SNAPSHOTS

Thanks to Clorox for sponsoring this post and arming us parents with the products we need to get ready for summer fun, without the summer funk.   Everyone has had it happen. You said you’d do it. You set phone reminders that you kept arrogantly flicking away like annoying insects. For weeks, your spouse reminded […]

My Wife Just Said… #339

Posted by on May 9th, 2018, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

Sometimes I extend my hand for a sarcastic introductory handshake when my wife asks silly things that she should absolutely know about me by now, or over a decade ago. I loooove food. And I also love not wasting money. It’s a powerful combination I find truly difficult to resist. In our house we don’t […]

50 SHADES OF BROWN (The Unplanned Sequel)

Posted by on February 7th, 2018, under SNAPSHOTS

After freeing themselves from the shadows of their past (and their headboard handcuffs), newly weds Anastasia and Christian embark on a new kind of domination and submission in their life, a kind that has no safe word… Parenthood. Sure. You thought it was only a trilogy, maybe even vigorously hoped and prayed, but it was […]

My Wife Just Pretended… #338

Posted by on January 29th, 2018, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

I’m not exactly sure after how many years on average it is, but there’s a point in marriage where you just develop acceptances of some things. Things that you’ve come to honest terms with, like your partner not actually paying a single molecule of attention to what you’re saying. When you were first courting, you […]

5 Tips for “Entertaining” a Sick Spouse

Posted by on January 18th, 2018, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID...", NOTEBOOK

We all try to be supportive when our significant other is sick. But I’m of the opinion that adding a little levity into the situation can’t hurt. My wife, or most wives or spouses for that matter, may ferociously disagree. Heck, I’m not such a fan of jokes when my body feels like the physical […]

My Wife Just Texted… #336

Posted by on November 16th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

Ah-HAH! No one likes a taste of their own medicine, especially when the medicine is actually pine sap and broken glass. ALL men know that the dreaded “we need to talk” is rarely (if ever) followed by something nice and safe like deciding on a pattern for the living room curtains or some such marshmallow […]

My Wife Just Binged… #334

Posted by on October 23rd, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

My wife an I have our routines, on the weekend especially. I’ll cook dinner and we’ll all watch a family movie in the living room while we eat. Then, once the bedtime marathon has been run, my wife and I will put on something less G-rated and have some wine and chocolate. I don’t have […]

My Wife Just Said… #333

Posted by on October 4th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

Last weekend my wife and I went on a date night. I can’t remember when the last time we did one, honestly. Either because my memory is that wrecked these days, or it was so long ago that it’s hard to see past the mental cobwebs. Probably both. Make that definitely both. During the day, […]

My Wife Just Said… 332

Posted by on September 26th, 2017, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

I can’t be the only parent who’s gotten caught into a rut with family movies. My son is young enough that there are a bunch of movies that come with the price of nightmares or restless sleep, so there are some extra limitations beyond what’s generally considered age appropriate or not, not to mention whether […]
