Four things I love about my man

4. The other day, Jacob's new toothbrush got flushed down the toilet.

Not sure what happened exactly, perhaps it just couldn't stand the thought of life in our bathroom (not that I blame it) and threw itself over the edge, but sure enough, it was lost and gone forever down the swirling vortex of terror.

I'm sure you know where this is going.

Cause you're smart like that, I can tell.

Upon hearing one of the boys flush the toilet about... oh, seven or eight times in a row, I finally called out (cause there's a fine line between calling and yelling, right?) and told him to quit playing with the toilet or he'd end up with a swirly!

Okay, not really.

"But mommy!" came the reply,"da toiwet's not fwushing!"

(No, the inch of water on the floor was not caused by the toilet. But rather by that deceptively innocent looking little girl in the tub)

Several days later, ( not that I'm trying to draw attention to that little aspect) Luke finally unclogged the thing, using his ingenuity and a wire, and re-discovered the lost toothbrush.

What would we do without him?

Swirling vortex of terror indeed.

3. Even when I'm nine months pregnant, he still weighs more than me. And even when I wear my 5-inch heels, he's still an inch taller than me.

What about that can't a girl love and appreciate?

2. He's not a picky eater. He'll eat anything, and I mean anything I make at least once. Even if it's nasty or just, you know... a little burnt.

Except for this one time while we were dating in college. Let's just say it had to do with a slight... okay, maybe more than a slight, over-dosage of pepper.

Eh hem. Anyway.

1.He looks sexy in a tool belt, or anytime using tool, especially a power tool.

Sorry guys, I just can't help myself. It's totally hot.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Hee hee!

Sue said...

I do love a guy that's handy!


PS. Mine will eat anything I make, too, and I love that about him. He's even grateful! (And those shoes are lethally attractive!)

Sounds like you got yourself a catch!

I totally pass my 150 lb. man when I am pregnant. It's completely depressing. I'm trying to plump him up before we try for baby #4. I don't want that to happen again...

Jess said...

HAHA! Love it. That's just awesome. We've decided that in our house to become a "real man" means said man has had to reach into the toilet at least once in his life to pull out something that certainly didn't belong there. Ewww!

is it wrong that I'm just wondering what the heck he is doing on a ladder fixing a big tall.... ummm... board?

The Bagley Family said...

Gotta love those manly men;)

I get mine to clean out the creatures/leftovers that grow in the fridge...cause he can handle the really gross stuff;)

I always LOOOOOOOOOVE your blog posts! You're so fun and creative! And I love those heels, but I would KILL myself or break my leg in half walking around in them while 9 months preggo! :)

Garden of Egan said...

OK, the tool belt awesome.
I'd rather be on a ladder that in those shoes! OUCH!!!!
I do not know how you do it. Preggers and everything.
They look like Chinese torture or something...
but DANG your feet are cute!

I wonder if you made Jacob use his toothbrush after being in the vortex of terror.

Water........yes, I remember those flooded days.

Nikki said...

Wait up...are you wearing those shoes in your 3rd tri? Um, what happened to swollen feet and flip flops no matter what season?!?! Not fair!

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Oh heck no. It's getting tough to wear my smaller heels on account that my back hates me.

I wish those were my ankles at 9 months!
