Mr. Mom FAIL

My man is a heckuva great husband. Fantastic father. Enthusiastic car guy. Mr. Fix-it.

He's a lot of things.

But he's not a mom.

He's been home with the kids all week. And will be next week too.

The kids are having a blast.


In HIS words, the house is currently in a state of Mr. Mom FAIL.

The evidence:

The dish sponge got placed on top of something that turned adhesive and part of the sponge stuck to the counter top.

The same thing happened to a box of cereal on my kitchen table.

And the t.v. / play room... oh I just can't even talk about it.

Now, it's not like I'm some neat-freak house keeping goddess. And I'll take some blame as there has been a lot of sugar, flour and water thrown around my kitchen as of late between bread and cookie production. But the house was pretty well clean on Monday.

Ahhhh well. We'll get it cleaned up soon.

I just hope that "Jaws the vaccuum cleaner" doesn't come after him.

This is hilarious! I remember when I left my husband and 1 year old daughter home alone...when I came back, she had pooped in the tub and he yanked her out of there, but didn't fish out the poop! That was left for me to deal with...nothing like a "silt" covered bathtub to say "welcome home"!

Hugs (and when are we getting together??)

Love the post! Funny how no one knows how things happened either! I went on a Retreat for a weekend and my twins came down with chicken pox. MY dearest Mr. Mom searched the internet for what do do. He didn't even call me to tell me. He didn't want me to worry and leave my Retreat. I loved him for taking care of his little girls and letting me get the needed care from my retreat.

Too funny! I think the problem with the cereal box is water. I had a terrible stain on my countertop from the plastic bread bag, no less. All because of water.

Don't have a clue about the sponge. That one is just weird.

I'm glad you got permission, because this whole thing is just a post begging to be written. :-D
