The Husbandlet is quotable, too

December 13, 2010 Jordana

Shortly after Rhiannon was born, I inherited a bunch of maternity and nursing clothes from the Husbandlet’s cousin. One tank top was particularly nice for wearing to bed, as certain sectors of it lowered conveniently for all-night nursing fests. All that to say that, although Rhiannon is now 19.5 months old and is no longer co-sleeping nor nursing, I am still wearing this particular tank top to bed. I wear it quite frequently.

A few nights ago, I put it on and headed to bed. The Husbandlet looked up at me and said (in all seriousness!), “Is that a new nightgown?”

Nope, pretty much wrong on all counts.

Recently, a stomach virus swept 3/5 of our family. One of the untouched fifths was the Husbandlet, who got the great joy of having to clean up after Rhiannon while I was too busy throwing up to be much help to him. Around midnight, after he had finished bathing her and cleaning up and re-making her bed for the second time (after one attempt on his part to go to sleep, himself), I started feeling a little better and got very, very thirsty. I asked him to make me a cup of mint tea. And he did it (with dried mint leaves, no less).

As he was handing it off to me, I said, “Thank you for taking care of me.”

He answered, “I’m just so glad I have you to take care of.”

I may just have to let him off the hook for the new nightgown thing for that.
