10 Reasons Why I am Sorry Dear Husband

Oh Husband I’m sorry!

When you hear the word wife what image does it conjure up in your mind? Despite being quite open minded I still see pictures of a domestic queen from the 50s. Red lips, high heals, an awesome cook and general sex goddess. Well I’m ginger so red lipstick doesn’t suit me, I can’t wear heels since going over on my ankle, I can boil an egg and sex goddess? *Snorts*.

Since I had my gremlin I’m not always sure I’ve been the best wife and since I have started blogging this may have got a tad worse. Hubby now has to deal with me swanning off to the gym, sneaking off to the laptop to do some sneaky writing AND bits of paper and glitter all over the dining room floor from my scrapbooking. Obviously I am spending time with my beautiful daughter, attempting to keep the house tidy (the cleaner has not come for a bit) so the old ball and chain is getting a bit neglected. And trust me he notices.

So I thought I’d write a little apology; dear husband I am sorry (honestly)….

  • That you are trying to tell me about your day at work and I’m reading something ever so important on Twitter. I will try and listen harder.
  • That I don’t come up to bed when you do and you are tired. I know you like to chat before bed but every second downstairs when the gremlin sleeps is freedom! I know as soon as I come to bed talking is banned. Well it’s sleep time now isn’t it?
  • That I apparently don’t notice all the chores that you have done in the house. It’s tricky to see when there are crumbs all over the surfaces, the gremlin’s PJs strewn over the lounge floor and a dirty nappy on the landing.
  • That I resemble a wild animal as I don’t shave as often as I should and I will try to more, even if it means wrestling my razor from our daughter as we share a bath.
  • That you always have to lock the front door and turn the dish washer on. I need to check my blog stats one more time but I will try and switch the laptop off 5 minutes earlier.
  • That I am too tired for a bit of before bed action. I’m off to buy some crotchless knickers as we speak.
  • That I don’t always snack enough in the afternoon and I get hunger-induced grump. I will eat in the cupboard so our daughter doesn’t find me.
  • That I took the remaining chocolate from the fridge to my Grandma’s. I didn’t have time to go to the shop and I may as well not even bother visiting empty handed (cute gremlin in tow or not).
  • That I am totally incapable at stacking the dishwasher: I will try harder to ensure it is suitably packed with our daughter trying to eat the dishwasher tablet.
  • That I get all glazed over when you start discuss anything related to computer security when it happens to pop up on the telly. Sorry babe, I just want to watch something on the telly that has words with words with more than 2 syllables.

This may be a half-hearted apology but it must be hard being my hubby. He’s a good one really and I think I would starve if he didn’t cook the tea. What? You have never heard of a dietitian who is a crap cook?

    Haha this made me laugh! I think we're all guilty of this at some point, I'm currently blaming being pregnant for my laziness and crap looking house haha xx

    I still frequently meet people who have hang ups about me and my wife using the term 'wife' including my parents, so I have my own issues with it. I am definitely guilty of a lot of these with my wife too. Especially the tweeting/fbing when I should be listening!

    LOL!! Our poor hubbies!!

    Ha ha I think I could do with apologising to my husband for some of the same things! #mummymonday

    Haha this made me giggle! These poor husbands do get neglected but that's what children (and blogging) do xx

    Ah bless you what a lovely post – I think we are pretty much all guilty of neglecting our other halves…not enough hours in the day but I'm sure he will feel much better reading this. The part about the crotchless knickers made me laugh haha! xx #mummymonday

    Haha this is all very true. I've become very good at nodding in the right places when Adi starts talking Physics or computer stuff…..

    Haha the thought of wearing heels makes me feel tired, never mind putting on make up and cooking… Think my husband must be as hard done by as yours! 🙂 #MaternityMondays

    Love this and I am hugely guilty of some of these! I can't imagine being a 50s type wife!! #mummymondays xx

    Oh yes, guilty as charged. The worst bit? Im sure I get mad at him for not 'listening' to me or helping out enough!

  13. May 25, 2015 / 7:19 pm

    Hahaha, oh this did make me giggle!! I'm guilty of a few of them myself! Ray #mummymonday

    hehehe! This is so funny. I can relate. You're a better wife than I am….I can't boil an egg. I can hard boil or under cook them…..Never soft boil them. lol

    Funny! And, oh, I can relate to this! Just recently my hubby told me sometimes he wishes he was a laptop. True story. I took that as a cue that I had been on the computer a little too much that day! Found you on #twinklytuesday. Thanks for sharing!

    Children change things so much in our relationships don't they. Great post. #TwinklyTuesday

    Lol, this made me laugh – I can relate to quite a lot of these as well! Your hubby sounds fab though. Maybe these poor neglected hubbies should get together and start a support group for hubbies of bloggers 🙂

    Super cute pictures of you guys. Your apology list has a lot of items mine would have too. It's hard to have time to do everything, especially with little kids, a blog and lots of social media to look after. But, it's all so fun! #TwinklyTuesday

  20. May 26, 2015 / 4:43 pm

    Very cute and funny! I think we all tend to have this happen sometimes. There just is never enough time to take care of it all!

    Marriage and parenting are supposed to go together, but they don't fit as well as we'd like, do they!? Thanks for linking with #TwinklyTuesday.

    OMG, I'm laughing so hard. As Dad to 8 and now providing full-time childcare to our first grandchild I'd have to apologize to my wife and my daughter simultaneously. I'm guilty of half (OK, well more than half, but I'll never divulge) of the things that you apologized for.

    Well done! Glad that I randomly picked this off of #TwinklyTuesday.

    Make it a great day!

    Lol! So much of this resonates!! Small children, yep it's a valid excuse, but the addition of blogging too!! EEEK! Great post! #twinklytuesday
