My Husband Reenacts His Afternoon Disaster With The Kids In Under A Minute And A Half

A few weeks ago, my husband took the kids to a birthday party while I stayed home and worked and wrote (maybe I should’ve put this BEFORE the 50/50 marriage post since y’all would’ve seen that I clearly get my 70%, too).

As we know, Scott’s solo-parenting track record is not nearly as pristine as mine.  But I got no frantic phone call or horror picture.  The kids came home tired and happy and a little bit wobbly from all the sugar.

Oh and my son was missing part of his chin.

Scott reenacts the scene.

No children were re-harmed in the making of this hilarity. Except for maybe their pride.

Also, small sections of the video are muted because Scott says our kids’ names like thirteen hundred times and because we didn’t name our children after letters of the alphabet.

She spends most of her writing time on LateEnough.com, a humor blog (except when it's serious) about her husband fighting zombies, awkward attempts at friendship, and dancing like everyone is watching. She also has a soft spot for culture, politics, and rude Southern people who offend her Yankee sensibilities. She parents 2 elementary-aged children, 1 foster baby, 3 cats, and 1 puppy, who are all Southern but not rude. Yet.

  1. I watched it without any sound. It was actually pretty hilarious. And does your kitchen have two sinks? Like a separate one, just for food, with a boiling water faucet? If it does I may have to unfriend you.

  2. In moments like this in the past, I often wonder WWMPD or What Would My Pediatrician Do? Certainly HE could get Riley to sit still or stop sobbing or have some special get the kid to sit still fairy dust or something. Glad to know I’m not that far off. :o)

  3. Why isn’t S cleaning the kitchen while he tells his story? Point of order; I thought you named your kids E and N. When you were pregnant was the baby referred to as “X”.

    I’m at my most wittiness when I do MATH!!!!!

  4. I love that your hubby is our pediatrician – because as I’m sitting here catching up on your blog my twins look up at the sound of his voice like – oooohh we know that guy! Too funny.

  5. I was already laughing, but I lost it when your little voice said “.. and I kind of wish our kitchen was cleaner”.

    LOVED it.

    That’s the best silent cry imitation I’ve ever seen. 🙂

  6. I cracked up when the arm flailing wailing happened.

    But mostly I coveted your marble countertops.

    I should have been more concerned with the chinless child, I know…BUT YOU WERE LAUGHING.

    Which took most of the tension out of everything, leaving me free to covet your counters.

    Cause I sort of am like that.

    We’ve all decided to find it charming.
