I may have gushed on a few times about how wonderful my husband is, supporting me through the newborn phase, being my biggest fan. All that palaver. What I’ve failed to mention is how lucky HE is to have me.
Oh so lucky.
And to emphasis this fact I thought I’d share just a sample of the text messages to my husband that he gets to enjoy from me. Who wouldn’t want a wife that sends you these in the middle of the day?
The baby vommed on me
Not entirely sure what he was going to do with this information at 10am??
Is it too early to resort to Calpol?
The baby is teething. It’s 7:48am and the Toddler is climbing the walls already with the baby screaming the place down because of those pesky teeth coming through. The husband has only been gone for approximately 28 minutes. It’s one of those days. Is it too early for Calpol?!
I changed the bed!
And yes mass appreciation is required. Changing the bed is a HATED task yet everybody loves clean bedding. I’ve yet to meet anyone who likes making the bed!
He doesn’t often reply to these……
The wine is in the fridge
Self explanatory. When you’re having one of those days.
I need a blankie
When the Baby fell asleep on the bed and I couldn’t reach the blanket. So you resort to texting the husband. Who is generally downstairs. To make him walk up the stairs to cover us up, with the blanket that is by my feet, because you know, I was cold! And moving WAKES THE BEAST!
Wish me luck with the metanium
Have you ever tried to put nappy rash cream on a strong, wilful, nearly 3 year old?? It is not pretty…
This message was swiftly followed by….
There’s metanium on the curtains
A slight wrestling match, the toddler won the battle I’ll win the war. The nappy rash won’t defeat me and I’m sure the luminous yellow stain will come out one day….
How long until you come home?
And I can pass childcare over to you…..
They’re driving me **crackers
Replace crackers with an expletive of your choice and you might be more accurate.
You know the days you don’t get anything done and are still sat in your pyjamas at 2pm because every time you go for a shower the baby cries. Or the toddler wants something. Then the baby needs to go to sleep. Then the toddler wakes him after a 30 second power nap that will see him through.
Leaving the house is overrated.
Guess the picture
We’ve reached the drawing stage and requests for actual items to be drawn.
Sometimes it’s a “guess what this is” kind of message:
Sometimes it’s a bragging, check out my drawing skills message:
Attempting to introduce the potty……
It’s not going well. We’ll get there I’m sure.
How has your texting changed since children?
