Choose Your Battles

seems to be the most ubiquitous piece of marriage advice given to newlyweds. Though it is a daily struggle for me to live by this philosophy (I'm high maintenence...or so I've been told), I think I'm getting better at it.

Something I got my baby daddy as a stocking stuffer for Christmas recieved some criticism.
Some folks (mostly females) thought it was a great way to get the hubs on a beauty routine that even men need as they age but others (mostly males) thought it was an equivalent to my husband getting me a kitchen appliance or vacuum cleaner as a gift. In my defense, it was just a stocking stuffer and not a major gift. To my surprise, the little bottle was not met with the scowl that I was expecting but rather a "I'll give it a try" response from the man who still uses Clearasil. Victory for me.

The funniest moments of my day are usually when I overhear daddy/baby banter over the moniter (See this little gem). Today I got to listen to "Head, fingers, knees & toes" sung to the melody of The Adams Family theme song while I made coffee. My husbands renditions of some of the most popular children's songs makes me wonder...who sang to him as a child???

    I think I almost woke Julia up laughing to this.
