My awesome husband...

First a funny story...

One evening Michael was getting James dressed for bed.  He wasn't paying very close attention to what he was doing and as he sat him up I said "Mike, you're awesome."  It had a tinge of jest in it... because he'd just completely dressed James in Lynae's pajamas that are not only PURPLE, but also 2 sizes too small for him.

Then, my sweet husband spoke up in a way only he can (lol).

"James, I'll dress you in purple pajamas every day if it gets my wife to call me awesome."

Then, last night he proved his real awesomeness when he went to WalMart and picked up a case of Coke for me.  Except, he didn't just get the requested case of coke.  No, he bought 2-24packs!  That should hold me for a little while :).  And, I just discovered that he re-stocked my little candy stash too!  Not just the awful Valentine's candy that the kids bring home from school at this time every year (and gets thrown out a few months later...) but.. real candy that is good :).  Like Reece's Peanut Butter Cups and York Peppermint Patties.  Yes... good stuff.

And so, I wanted to say that my husband is awesome and if he thinks he has to dress James in purple pajamas for me to say it, I must not be saying it quite enough (though I did enjoy the laugh :)  ).


  1. Coke and chocolate... the man knows our love language!

  2. Way to go awesome husband! I wonder why you need all that coke and candy...Oh wait a min. I remember you have EIGHT kids :o)


  3. How sweet!! Maybe I should forward this to my husband and hopefully get some peanut butter cups ;-)
