My Wife Just Said… #266

Posted by on May 23rd, 2016, under "MY WIFE JUST SAID..."

If I were a man who cared more about scores and numbers, this would make me crazy. It’s not that Avara’s doing to get revenge (well, maybe just a little bit), but it’s because this is an activity we enjoy doing together. Sometimes, Finn and I play video games together. He tanks my percentages, my […]

Pull up a seat, boys and girls. You see, after you have kids, hell even before that, there’s a period of time where you may eat a bit more than you used to or is even reasonable. For me, I gained weight at every step while my wife was pregnant. Both times. But here we […]

“Cuddles. Get ’em when you can.❤” –Avara   The older your kids get, the faster and more painfully distant they can become. I know I’m whiling away the hours and days before my sons push off into the vast seas of young adulthood. They will never know what it’s like to have a father who couldn’t […]

“Pretty sure the pharmacist just called me “sir”. Not really sure how to feel about this.” –Avara   As a kid, lots of people on the phone called me ma’am. No idea why, and it was very frustrating, though I can’t even describe why. Gender identification is a hot-button issue right now. I guess we all […]

“Playing a game with Finn where we pick a letter & give examples of things that begin w/letter. Picked W, I said ‘walrus’ & Finn said ‘wine’  –Avara   I’m not entirely certain where the wine thing came from. I have used the “would you like cheese with that whine” line and he’s asked me […]

“Costume’s coming together. Ten points to whoever correctly guesses what I’m going to be…” –Avara   We’ve been working on our costumes for Halloween this Friday. We’ve finally landed on what we’re doing and it’s going to take some real effort. But I’m hoping you guys will love them. Can you guess who/what my wife is […]

“I’m outnumbered.” –Avara   I think my wife wakes up some days to the stark realization that she is surrounded by dudes at home. This situation lives in contrast to the sentiment of thinking we were having a girl the first and second go-arounds. I don’t think she envisioned a symphony of farts and stunts in […]

“I bought roller skates for myself. But they’re men’s. The women’s were pink and white and I didn’t want to feel 9 years old.” -Elizabeth   Every single person who has ever lived, has lived in a “new world.” It’s always changing, always has, and always will. The concepts of stereotypes, gender roles, adulthood, language, […]

My Wife Just Texted… #156

My wife and I meet in the middle on many things. Sometimes, it’s compromise. But most often we have the exact same thought about situations, people and decision-making. It’s a good thing we’re both geeks because neither of us would be a catch outside of our own geeky world. And by that I mean me. […]

My son comes from a long line of sub-par sleepers. Growing up, I had every sort of parasomnia you could imagine: sleepwalking, sleep-talking, night sweats, night terrors — the whole deal. I once peed in someone’s sink thinking it was a toilet. And it wasn’t college. I was 8-years-old. Hopefully, Finn won’t have the same […]
