This post today has been written and linked up with The Happy Wives Club for their Thursday “Why I Love My Husband Linkup:
“Say, thanks to the man who brought you into this world.” That is Kevin trying to be a comedian with my girls as he is opening up a bag of M&M’s.
He knows they want the candy in that bag, because hell, Lily just even asked, “Can I ‘have M E M’s” (her 2 year old way of saying it).
My response to his joke is to bust on him just a bit by saying this, “You didn’t bring them into this world, I gave birth to them!”
“Well, my seed started the whole process,” Kevin answers me with his smart ass mouth.
“Really, so that 30 seconds release of sperm, means more than giving birth?”, I retort trying to tease him some more for his comment.
“I didn’t say that, but if it weren’t for the sperm they wouldn’t be here,” Kevin chimes in laughing and trying to be entertaining still.
“Yes, but carrying two kids for nine months each and then going through hours of labor, where and I quote you said during my delivery of Lily, ‘Oh does that hurt’, and by the way it did, qualifies you more for bringing them into this world safely. Very interesting way of thinking and have a feeling many women all over the world would disagree on that one,” I add for good measure now smirking.
“Ok, you had more than something to do with it. I get it and I was there for all of the above,” he now says with his cute boyish smile knowing full well that he is just itching to be cute about this and trying so desperately to make me laugh at his so-called funny he believes he just made.
As I walked away from him, while eating a handful of M&M’s, I just couldn’t help, but laugh out loud slightly.
I heard from the other side of the room, “Mission accomplished. My job is done and see girls that is how to make your mother laugh by being a complete jerk.”
Both of us, do this quite well and take pride in it!!
Yeah, he was proud of himself, but here is a little secret, he does just have that uncanny ability to make me laugh. He can try to pretend to be a jerk by teasing me, but he really isn’t and he truly is one in a million and all mine. I have to say, I got lucky as far as husbands go, because he will pitch in and help with the kids after a long day at work, clean the dishes after I cooked a meal for us, and even go grocery shopping while I am spending Saturday morning keeping Emma occupied while Lily has dance class and then make the switch so that the yet Emma can dance while we wait some more for over two hours.
So even though, his comment might have offended some women or women’s groups, my husband truly was just being his lovable jokester and sarcastic self. I have to say I do quite enjoy this side of him, because we do play nicely off each other with our sarcastic sense of humors (yes those that read me know I have sarcastic streak and so does my husband, too).
And by the way, I know once I publish this he is going to read it and say, a) “You made up half of the conversation (because half the times he doesn’t remember the half of the half of what we joke about) and then add for good measure b) “Why didn’t you tell them about how you dropped the bag of M&M’s splattering some on the floor during this conversation?” (yes, he gave me the bag and thought that a twist tie was on it, thus spilling it all over the kitchen floor).
Because again this is his way of saying he does read my writing and that he even likes it, because Kevin wouldn’t be Kevin quite simply, if he weren’t joking around with me and trying to make me laugh. That is why I love him, because he makes my day that much brighter and even funnier.He Is The Best!!!
