For my readers: A little background.

My sister in law and I each have 2 kids. They alternate ages, get along great, and are really close.

This is for my sister in law!

Are you freakin’ kidding me??!! I watch your kids every damn day of the f’in week! You drop them off at 7:00 a.m. I get them breakfast. I get them ready. I take them to school. I pick them up from school. I get them snack. I help them with their homework. I watch them until you get off of work.

So, I should be able to ask you once a f'in month to watch my kiddos so I can go out with the old man, right? Wrong!!! Every time I ask you, you act like I am asking if I can come and give you a f’in’ enema!! Then you “hhmmm” and “uuhhhhh” until I just want to slap you silly!

Thanks guys. I feel much better now. Just needed to get that off my chest. One of those moments when, in the interest of family diplomacy you have to bite your tongue.

The Doghouse

Thought I would share this with you.
Take a moment to watch it. It's pretty funny!

The Other Side

In the interest of camaraderie, I have posted a link to one of my husbands favorite songs and videos.
(Actually it's one of mine too.)

The Other Side

So I was thinking... for the benefit of any future male readers it would be great to include the male perspective from time to time. I decided to ask my hubby to help me. Here is how it went.

Me: Honey, I am so excited! I have this really great blog set up where I can spout off about being a housewife and all the shit that goes with it.

Hubby: (Staring at the television) Uh Huh....

Me: Can I talk to you about it?

Hubby: (Because he is of course well trained, looks away from the TV, and gives me his full attention) Sure!

Me: OK so I am thinking I should occasionally post a male perspective.

Hubby: O.K.... Sounds good

Me: So basically, I want you to complain about me on my blog.

Hubby: (Just looks at me) What?

Me: You know, find faults of mine and complain about them from the male perspective.

Hubby: (doing the safe thing and staying silent)

Me: So what do you think?

Hubby: Is this a trick?

Me: No I am totally serious.

Hubby: (Stares at me)

Me: Please?

Hubby: I don't know......

So I decided to let him think on it. As impatient as I am I was eagerly awaiting a response while at the same time trying not to bug him to give me one.

Eventually he came through!

Hubby: So I was thinking about what you said earlier about your blog.....

Me: And......

Hubby: And... this will totally be like a camaraderie-type thing, right? Like when you and I joke around with each other. No offense taken, right?

Me: Absolutely! Because as you know I will be writing about you too.

Hubby: OK... sounds like fun.

Ha Ha Ha! Sucker!

Stay tuned........

Do you lack social skills?

Well do you?

Here is how you can tell....

You are at a class with your kids. Karate, dance, singing, whatever. Do you:

a) talk loudly on your cell phone so that people are looking around for something to hit you over the head with?

b) Sit quietly amazed that your child is really that cool?


c) let your other, smaller children run completely amuck, screaming, getting into purses, and grabbing toys out of other kids hands?

If you answered b.. Congratulations you have social skills, and yes your kids are probably that cool! :)

If you answered a or c you are one of the a-holes I ran into at my kids class last night and you completely lack social skills! You should relegate yourself to a hermit and hide out at home until you get a freakin' clue!

Welcome to the Modern Day Housewife

Yes lady, 10 am is too early for a cocktail, but being a housewife these days who can blame you for wanting one!

Welcome to the Modern Day Houswife!

How this blog got started:

I started my very first blog recently. You know, the usual cutesy blog about the fam and the kids and what not. On my third post, a friend and fellow blogger left me a comment basically asking if I was just going to be another one of those bloggers that rambles on and on about their cute family and the cute things they have done.

My answer: Yes and No

I kept the other blog for my family and friends, but decided to start this one so that I can basically bitch and comment about whatever I want.

So welcome to the Modern Day Housewife,where you never know what you'll get! Enjoy!
