Reading a book...

Well, i've had so many dr's appt's lately i've been carrying a book around in my oversized purse to read while i wait. As i wait patiently to see If Cheryl over at http://www.twinfatuation.blogspot.com/ writes a trailer book to twinspiration, which was one of my favorite books i read over and over while i was prego. In the mean time i'm reading the book, "ready or not, there we go" by Elizabeth Lyons and it's AWESOME! It's about life after the first year with twins. I seriously giggle just thinking about some of the things i've read in her book. It's seriously something that really makes me giggle everytime i pick it up. For instance today i was reading about how she took her kidos to the store one day and they pitched such a fit that they were laying across the isle of the store and both twins had their feet touching opposite sides of the isle(like a road block) and she finally knew it was just time to pick up and get the H out of the store. She left the cart full of items and carried them under her arms out of the store. It made me laugh so hard just picturing it and then thanking my lucky stars i have small girls...so if indeed that did happen i wouldn't be lugging TOO much weight as with two boys! Anyway, as i was reading it today while we waited for Hannah's dr.(and giggled to myself constantly about some of the funny things she's written), i came upon a, wet your pants-funny, about an email that had gone around a while back between moms.

Here is the email, it's actually a joke:
"A man came home from work and found his three children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn all around the front yard. The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and there was no sign of the dog. Proceeding into the entry, he found an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, and the throw rug was wadded against one wall. In the front room the TV was loudly blaring a cartoon channel, and the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door. He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls. As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel. She looked up at him, smiled and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, "what happened here today?" She again smiled and answered, "you know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world i did that day?" "Yes," was his incredulous reply. She then answered, "well, today i didn't do anything."

I seriously almost peed my pants laughing at this joke. I think this could possibly be the FUNNIEST part of the book! I can imagine my hubby walking in and me having not done a thing for the day. I mean, i'm gone for a few hours to the ER and he did finally do the clothes and unload the dishes. BUT, he thought i should have been thanking him on my knees...because men don't do those things. WHILE, women have to do them EVERYDAY(weekends are not an exception) and still tend to their children, keep the house semi clean, sometimes actually cook dinner, wash clothes, change poopy diapers, wipe snotty noses, try to maintain the noise level, and maybe have 2 seconds to go to the powder room! While, my hubby gets to sit/stand in his office...play on the computer, work a little-in peace and quiet, cheek his favorite website WOOT.COM, check craiglist for anything he may need to buy for whatever reason, sit in a nice quiet office, actually go to the boys room and not have to worry about a child screaming outside the door..or better yet, you hear a child down the hall screaming and have no idea what happened so you literally take a 2 second pee and maybe have time to wipe before you pull your pants up as you are running down the hall, grab a diaper wipe to wipe your hand while you are inspecting what the crying baby wanted, plan and cook 2 or maybe 3 meals a day which usually don't get eaten because all they want are apples and snacks, etc. So, husbands out there, THANK your wives every once in a while...before you come home to a house like this! LOL!

P.S This is really not a threat for my hubby, LOL! It was just soo funny i had to share. AND, if you haven't read this book...amazon has it. I don't know the lady that wrote the book...but she is hilarious and should be a comedian...everything in here is hilarious!
