he's just doing his part around here, too.
Dirk was sharing with me a funny conversation that he had with a friend of his.
Somehow they got on the subject about their morning routine. Sounds weird, two men actually discussing their morning routine, huh? We all know that it's not normal for men to share details, especially with each other. lol!
Anyhow, they were talking and Dirk was saying how Gucci (our puppy) had the family's routine down each morning. Dirk casually mentioned that he'll let Gucci out to do his business, then he'll feed Gucci, then he'll make lunches for everyone and then he'll go make the bed.....
He didn't get much further before the friend interrupted him and shouted...."You do WHAT?" lol! "You make the lunches?!?!!" "You make the bed?!?!" lol! As Dirk was telling me about this, we were both laughing hysterically. The friend went on to say, "Man, you are whipped!"
Dirk said he started to tell him that he didn't know the half of what he assists with around the house, but thought again that it would only confuse the poor friend more.
I really did think this was hilarious! Again, what are the chances that men would actually share such details with each other?
I asked Dirk if he thought this friend ran right home and shared this conversation with his wife. Probably not, huh?
Dirk and I really didn't see it as a BIG deal that he's the one to make lunches and make the bed at our house.
Hey, I have my own routine of things to-d0 in the mornings. I.....I.....I.....I....I wake up the girls. I check the weather on Yahoo to see what the temperature is going to be. I pick out Jae's clothes. I pick out my outfit (which takes some time). I.....I....I have to comb Jae's hair. Oh dear! It sounds like I am trying to justify why my husband is the one to make lunches and make the bed for all these years. Well, we both work outside the home. And it's just part of his responsibility too. Okay......I'm starting to trip out.
In any case, I am sure that we all have something "different" that our spouse helps out with that no other man (other than yours) would do, right?
My hubby is just a sweet and precious kind of guy! He always has been. I think he learned not only a lot from having a wonderful mother who raised him, but he watched a lot of "I Love Lucy" when he was growing up too. He likes to say he learned from Ricky's mistakes.
In any case, (I know I use this phrase a lot) I am so thankful for Dirk and appreciate the fact that he is an abnormal man (in a good way).
I think I will call the wife of this friend of Dirk's and ask her what does he help her with that other men would find abnormal or different. Hmmmmmm.....on the other hand, maybe not!
