My dear friend Jenn was visiting me over the weekend. We started comparing our husbands habits...
As is Jenn's, my husband is fantastic. He is absolutely perfect for me. I couldn't have asked for a better man to love me and our baby girl.
HOWEVER.. as most wonderful husbands do, he comes with some bad habits.
Since I am currently a stay at home mom I do the majority of the chores around the house. Husband has a minimal amount of things that I ask him to do. Some of them are please brush your teeth, please take a shower.. stuff like that. Another is the trash. He is responsible for taking the trash to the curb twice a week. Trash day is always the same day of the week. Last week I decided to try a little experiment to see how long it would take him to do this one thing without me asking him to do it.
Our trash can got very full. I started smashing the trash down until it wouldn't smash anymore. I started a new bag on the floor next to the trash can and started filling that up. My stinky fish trash even ended up in there. Do you think he noticed? Nooooo.. not even when he had to kick the second bag out of the way to sit down and eat breakfast. I finally caved and asked him (a few times) can you please take out the trash, dear sweet husband?
Are all husbands like this? I'm not complaining, because he truly is a wonderful sweet man that I love to pieces, I just think it's funny. Selective seeing goes along with selective hearing I suppose!
