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.

Wackadoo Wednesday!

It's been rainy and dreary over most of the country this week. So take a moment to enjoy $240 worth of comedy! This one's for you Megs!!

If you are one of those people out there who did not enjoy The State in it's prime during the mid 90's, please do yourself a favor and spend some time perusing YouTube for their greatest hits. You will thank me.

Yes, we're still alive

Wow, it's been a whole week since I've posted. Bad blogger, bad. It's just been crazy busy. To sum up last week here are the highlights:

My friend Kim FINALLY got pregnant thanks to some fantastic advances in medicine. She is now carrying TWO healthy little fetuses. Or is it feti? At any rate, I'm just as excited for her as I was for my own pregnancies. YAY KIM!

Mia and I had our first mother/daughter salon day. She thought it was the greatest thing ever to be able to pick out her own nail color and have someone paint her nails for her. She was not so sure about Mommy getting her eyebrows waxed but got through it with sparkly glitter nails.

I went through three days of CPR/AED, First Aid training to be a trainer classes at the Red Cross. So now not only can I save your life, I can teach anyone how to do it. That's almost worth coming in on Saturday (my 3rd working Saturday in a row), I'm still debating that.

I am not mentally able to play 2K8 MLB on the Wii. My brain does not work that fast and it only pisses me off. So much so that I ended up throwing the remote across the room and storming upstairs not unlike a Mia tantrum. So I'm sticking to Rock Band and Wii Fit from now on.

So there's our week in a nutshell. Chuck and Layla were boring I guess so they don't get noted in this post. I should ask them to step it up this week to get some press.
