My Husband Not An Ass: Mother's Day Redux

Yes, ladies, the hubby pulled through. Mother's Day was a complete success. Hubby is exhausted but I am smiling from ear to freakin' ear.

The day started at 8:30am. I read, dozed, read, dozed until 10am when hubby returned from running errands. I played with the kids for a bit, all tickles and giggles, and dressed for my perfect day.

Two cups of green tea, one croissant, 5 pages, and a tuna salad later, I left the cafe table I occupied for 4 blissful, uninterrupted hours (!) and headed home. I was greeted by neighbors and friends, happy kids chasing each other around the yard, and my hubby preparing a barbecue feast. There was good wine, great food, and excellent company.

And the best part - that's right, ladies - no clean up! I did not lift a finger and it felt f#&*ing f-a-n-t-a-s-t-i-c.

Best day I've had in a long time.
Thanks again, hubby.
Back to the grind perfect life.

I hope you had a lovely Mother's Day as well.

At the end of the day, Andy asked me "I know it's Mother's Day but would you consider bathing RC tonight?"

My response: "You answered your own question."

Mother's Day is like a Get Out Jail Free card for guilt.

Yay for your husband! And you! I'm so happy you had the day you wanted. It sounds too good to be true.

I am soooooo very jealous, but happy for you.
