Happy Father's Day: Love Works In Mysterious Ways

My hubby did such a nice job this Mother's Day as written in this post, that I thought I'd do the same for him on his special

So to make him feel like an extra special Dad...

I chose today to catch a nasty cold,
I chose today to sleep while he made everyone breakfast,
I chose today to sleep while he fed and walked the dog,
I chose today to sleep while he drove our daughter to her dance recital,
I chose today to sleep while he dealt with our whiny son.

See how that works? I let Dad be an excellent Dad on Father's Day. That's just the kind of loving wife I am.

Sorry, Hubby. Better luck next year.
Happy Father's Day to all.

Of course they'd publish such a heartfelt, touching story.

Congratulations! And I hope you're feeling better. Very clever, letting the huz be a good dad.

I love you Father's Day Plan! Mine was to actually not complain about the Mr. golfing again, and then they got caught in a lightening storm before they even began and had to come home to put up with bickering kids.

And on picking such a great father for your children.

Oh, yay for you being published. I'm so [jealous] happy for you. Did you submit it, or was it just picked out of thin, cyberspace air?
