Priorities


Monday was my day at school. That means Hubby got to play Desperate Housewife. I have to say, thus far he has really done a great job.

I mean, he doesn't do things MY way, but I hear there's more than one way to skin a cat.

Or so I've heard.

When I called him Monday afternoon to check in, he gave me a status report.

"I've done nothing today," he said.

"Not a productive day, huh?"

"No, I mean NOTHING."

I figured he was being general. All us housewives do that. We say we've done NOTHING, but that generally means instead of doing dishes, laundry, dusting, vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom, grocery shopping, rearranging furniture, cleaning out closets, saving the planet and feeding the children, we have only managed to wash dishes, do laundry, dust, vacuum, clean the bathroom and feed the children.

But no, he wasn't being general. He was being literal.

I arrived home to find things just the way I left them...only a little worse.

Dirty dishes. Dirty clothes. Unmade beds.

But the real kicker...the straw that broke the camel's back...the most heinous of all his domestic crimes...

He took my girls out in public without (GASP!)...

BOWS.

That's right, friends. My girls went out with naked heads.

He said he didn't feel well. OBVIOUSLY. I mean, I know this is true, because who, in their right mind, would do that to two innocent children.

Speaking of bows, isn't that picture up above absolutely beautiful? My friend took a bunch of them for my web site and did a spectacular job. All the pictures are so, so sweet. (Click the link and go check out her new site! If you see pictures of an adorable blonde girl with huge bows, that is Sister.) I am hoping to have everything finished and open to the public by this weekend. I will be definitely doing a post to let everyone know. So be watching!!!

Ack! The cuteness! It's too much.

I am so excited to see the bow site. Come on little Gemma, quickly grow some more hair!

How could he do such a thing??? Thanks for the shout out with my site. I am quite excited!!

Yes, obviously he was feeling wretched or he never would have done such a thing, surely!! I don't get the people that don't get the bow thing. ;) And yes, the picture is beautiful!

You're lucky their heads were the only naked thing. It's usually Lord of the Flies with Diaper Boy when mine's in charge. :)

LOVE your friends website! Sister is a DOLL!

Just think it could always have been worse.

I got my granddaughter a T-shirt, that says "My daddy does my hair." Said daddy (my son) was babysitting one day, combed the girls hair, and did not put the bows on straight. He said granddaughter (age 4) went to her room and put the T-shirt on before leaving the house. That explained everything.

I used to love to put big bows in my daughter's hair. It's one of the rights mothers have when they have daughters. I think it might even be in the Constitution somewhere...

Gasp! The horror! I think you should get one of those t-shirts (Cissy talked about) for your girls to wear on Mondays.
