Yar, he's a keeper
The other day when the Mr came home I apologised for the messy house.
I didn't get to clean today because *insert reason here*
"Oh so I go to work all day and you get to do nothing" (He was TOTALLY joking by the way)
"Yep" I said.
"It's ok though, you owe me overtime. I think I have a big store of money owing to me from all the times in the night I get up. Nine years worth. Double time and a half.
And then we laughed.
He said 'men really are simple. The major question they have to ask in life is short and sweet.'
Will you marry me?
But what they really mean is:
Will you love me, still love me even though sometimes I am wrong, have a warm dinner waiting each night when I come home from work, wash and fold my clothes and that of 4 other people, do my grocery shopping, wake up each night to the needs or one or more of our children, clean up vomit, poo, and the endless list of whatever gross things our children leave around, listen to me snore, bathe and dress 5 people each day without my help, taxi us around, do things for me when I ask from work, greet me with a smile and kiss at the end of the day, wash the dishes, oh and look beautiful while doing it all?
The Mr said "Would you have said yes?"
hmm *still thinking*
mabye it is best to stick with short and sweet.
Cause I totally would marry HIM.
the rest? not so much :)
Post Edit**** I've realised this post might make my husband look bad. He doesn't make me or insist I do the above mentioned things. I do them at my own free will and choice:) Just over time thats what our busy life has morphed into :) and he does plenty of things for me. I might write a sister article from the opposing point of view. What he got himself into by asking me to marry him ;)
