Husbands are crazy

They try so hard sometimes but they just don't get it. We've all had those moments, they offer to get the kids ready and mismatch the clothes. They offer to feed them and just go get McDonald's (ok, so I've done that too.) This is the funniest example of a dad's good idea that I have ever heard! Thank you Kim for sharing it with me and subsequently, the rest of the internet.
From an e-mail I received this morning:

"shannon's so crazy. he's trying so hard to be helpful, over there slaving away at dinner and then he's got to put gas in my car because the smell is just too much for me. he's reasoned out a way we can feed twins and still sleep. Are you ready for this? I just need to go ahead and start pumping now and we can freeze it and have "like a year of that shit by the time they get here" so he can feed one out of a bottle. He's so serious I hated to tell him what a retard he was."

Wow. I wasn't aware you could start squirreling breast milk away before your children were even born. Poor man, his heart is in the right place but his mind isn't. We still love him though, as all us wives do when our husbands go retarded.

Wow. Yeah, I know those husband moments. I didn't have that breast milk conversation--but my husband did recently offer to start doing his laundry since I had complained how he never did . . . so he ran a bunch of half loads, and when investigating as to why, I realized that he was literally doing HIS OWN laundry and nothing else.

Not out of spite, mind you, but he thought this was my particular issue, having to do HIS laundry.

LOL, men think soooo differently from us.
