"Look what you've done to me!"

Without getting into too much detail, I'll just say that my idea of a romantic evening usually involves a bubble bath, candles, soft music, and a glass of wine or a nice beer. We were at the house in Michigan this weekend, and the fact that it was Valentine's Day (in combination with the fact that I have a HUGE jacuzzi tub there that is rarely used) made me want to have a nice romantic evening with the Grouper. We're in the bathroom, I'm running the bath water, lighting the candles, turning on the radio, and cracking open the beers, getting ready to strip, and Grouper says:

"Wait. That bath water is hot. Considering what we're trying to accomplish this weekend, maybe I shouldn't get in there with you....I wouldn't want to scald any important little baby-makers."

My response: "Look what I've done to you!"

The poor guy....he's officially become the husband of a baby-obsessed wife. I've made him read more stuff on the internet about girly business than any man should ever have to read. When I was in the process of miscarrying, I couldn't help but laugh as he was reading (well, actually screaming, since I was upstairs in bed and he was downstairs on the computer) the symptoms of a miscarriage and telling me that some women spot throughout their pregnancy. It was just hilarious to hear him read things like that, because he is such a "man's man" and doesn't want to know anything about my so-called "girly business" unless he has to.

And now here he is, worrying about the safety and well-being of his spermicidal maniacs. Without me even prompting him.


If that's not love, then I don't know what is. :)

In case you're wondering, he sat beside me on the floor and had a beer with me by candlelight while I soaked in the tub for just a bit. :)


  1. Aww, such a sweet husband!! Here's hoping his restraint pays off this month :-)

  2. Oh, you crazy and adorable kids.

    This story made me think of the SATC episode when Carrie goes to San Fran to promote her book and wants to sleep with Big and he's all like, "I had no idea I hurt you so badly!" and wouldn't have sex with her. So funny.

    Miss Skyping with you, and we've only done it (barely even) once! Weird? Maybe. But oh well. Such is life when you've got me as your blush. :)

  3. Aw that's so sweet! DH knows he's not allowed near a hot tub until we get knocked up. I hope you were able to get some more work done on the house while you were there. Our V-Day plans were "ruined" by the Daytona 500 and it's delays. *sighs*
