My friend and I were talking last week about the Mom Blogs that gush over their husbands and make us feel bad that we don't on our blogs (if she would ever get one!). So I thought I'd take this opportunity to thank Todd for being so gosh darn great! For one, he made me this for lunch, mmmm! We added this to the short list of things he cooks. You can make this for me any day! And yes, it was so momentous that I did, indeed, take a picture.
He also got the boys to sit quiet and still for about 10 minutes. Here's how:
Toby: I want hot chocolate!
Ben: No, I want chocolate milk!
Me: Sorry Ben we're out of milk so we can't make chocolate milk.
Ben: NOOOOOO! I WANT SOME CHOCOLATE MILK!
Me: No Ben, I'm not going to get you it if you act like that.
Todd: If you guys can sit on the couch without talking and with your arms folded while I go get some milk you guys can have chocolate milk.
Toby: No, I don't want chocolate milk, I want hot chocolate.
Todd: Okay you can have hot chocolate and Ben can have chocolate milk. Okay?
Here's what happened.
Minutues 4, 5, 6
Minutes 7, 8, 9
Minute 10 milk arrives!
Minute 11--they almost died doing it, but being quiet for 10 minutes was actually possible and they lived to drink their chocolates, but just barely (Toby looks exhausted by the feat)
And of course, Todd's infamous butt crack. You know you've all seen it. It somehow makes its appearance whenever he wears pants. Which, is most of the time. The kid cannot keep a pair up to save his life. I use to think it was because he refused to grow up and not wear bagging pants but HE HAS and they still don't stay up. Grow a butt Todd! Either way it's kind of cute and now it's out there for the world to look at. This is just a sampling of why my husband is better than yours! So take that all you MomBloggers!
