Question of the Ages

I am sure this question is heard by many fathers, after they were watching the kids while the mother was away and upon her return it is the first words out of her mouth.

What in the hell is he wearing?

Hee!

The story of TGIM's life, I tell you what. Especially on Picture Day. Except that day I actually picked their clothes the night before, so what he actually heard when I came home was, "What the hell is up with their HAIR?!"

(We actually bought those pictures. Just to mock The Hair, of course.)

What the hell is he drinking?

Or better than mine - which is...

What the hell happened to her eye?

And DH's 1st response - I swear to GOD - "Really? Just like that you noticed, huh? I didn't think you would.

Around our house it's "Did he dress himself?"

What no picture?

Yep that is a question I think every mother has asked?

My question is "Why can't my hubby ever brush our daughters hair and wash her face before shipping her off to daycare in the morning?"

Like CK, I just assume the child dressed himself, and compliment him on a job well-done. Usually he will say, loudly, "And Daddy didn't even have to help!" Which gives me the opportunity to arch an eyebrow at Mr. E. So it all works out. ;)

I've uttered that question before. I just had to ask. The kid's father let him go to school wearing his Superman pajama shirt! I can only imagine what the teacher thought!

Let me guess:

Swim trunks, rain boots, a hoodie that's too small and a tiara?

Yes but my husand gets an excuse. He's color blind. So unless they are Garanimals it's a toss up if anything matches.

I just love, love love this site. I found it in a round a bout sort of way. But another site that I frequent had a link to yours. So here I am. Your stuff is so funny.

And why do men dress their kids so weird? What is up with that? Just dress the kid in the same color from head to toe and it shouldn't be a problem. Of course my husband has dressed our little one in clothes inappropriate for the season and clothes that are too small. For which he would have to search. Because I make sure our kid's closet is set up by color, by season and by size. Just to make things easier. But why should that make a difference?

My husband can't even get the outfits that GO together together...why is that?

No, I mean really this isn't a rhetorical question, you're a guy...why the hell is that?

Andrea said...

Um. Yeah. My oldest daughter got sent to a friend's house in her (very obviously) pajamas once. He has never heard the end of THAT one.
