And today - in addition to being Earth Day - is M.O.T.H.'s Irthday - that's right, just for today we drop the B when we sing the song...
and today - to make up for the fact that he has gone off to work with no presents (except maybe a steamy kiss) I am telling you all that he's a pretty awesome guy.
We have a good relationship: I love him more than Blogging and Scrapbooking - He loves me more than Mountain Biking and Camping... This works out nicely when we are together because I'm not trying to crop a picture and coin a witty phrase while he "insert cool biking phrase here" in his sub-zero sleeping bag. This also works nicely for when we can't be together because we both have hobbies that keep us busy!
He is a good provider: We may not have the nicest house in town, we may not even live in the nicest area (seriously, my ex-neighbor is currently serving a life sentence) but after many years of apartment hopping in 4 different states - we are settled! Settled is such a nice word isn't it?
He encourages me to be a better person: in so many ways... I even eat tomatoes now :)
He's not the MOST outgoing person I know - but always willing to dress up for Halloween (yes, that's his costume in the picture... you don't have to worry about M.O.T.H. joining the former neighbor)
He's a great Dad - I love that he reads books to M at night. I'm only a tiny bit jealous that she thinks his character voices are superior to my own... I mean his Pooh Bear voice is good and all, but HELLO, I'm the one who actually took a class in college where we spent the entire semester reading kids' books out loud. I do a MEAN rendition of "The Lorax", trust me!
Oh yeah - this isn't about me - it's about M.O.T.H. - hmmmm... what else...
no seriously - he's a super husband, super dad, I'm pretty sure his parents think he's an alright kid as well. He appears to be an okay friend since he still hangs out with the guy he hung out with in high school... and only occasionally does this drive me batty.
Happy Irthday Man Of The House! now I'm off to the store to get all that stuff you wanted :)
seriously though: you REALLY want shake and bake for dinner? I didn't know they even still sold that stuff!
