Attention all Husbands! This is a good weekend to get HUSBAND BROWNIE POINTS! (HBP) Yes, even if you do not have kids, you can score points!
I am able to write this and post it on Friday because I know my wife will not read my Blog before Sunday.
(random hint: these HBP may involve flowers)
When My Wife and I got together, we did not have a gold fish between us! We knew we are in the better Aunt and Uncle role than the parent role. We know it, we admit it, we are fine with it.
But we do have our three katz, which sometimes seems just as expensive and annoying as kids:
Kids use lots of diapers.
Katz have litter boxes that they do not outgrow
Kids do not want to eat what you prepare
Katz will suddenly quit eating the flavors they have always eaten (normally right after you buy BUNCHES of cans on sale and you threw away the receipt)
Do your katz tell you this is not enough for 30 days?
Kids, I know how often parents take kids to the doctor, I swear I was never that sick growing up…but then again it was after they took my tonsils out at 5.
Katz, rabis shots are expensive and you have to cage your katz…well maybe kids need caged to take to the vet’s too.
(side note, my little boy Zak had some kitten issues in his first 4 months and he helped me learn about all the specialties UT Small Animal Veterinarian Clinic offers. It was expensive and My Wife and I both have in our wills that we are leaving money to elp other families pay for similar procedures for their little kittens. Do you have charitable giving in your will?)
So back to the point of HBP, while pets are not kids, they are My Wife’s little children with fur and fangs. And this Sunday is Mother’s Day (HINT to married guys with kids…GET SOMETHING) so my three little beasties are getting Mommy flowers!
(Click the photo for the link, they are my personal.florists. I call or email them the event, the dollar amount and they make me look good! If you showed me two lilies in two different colors, I would not know they are the same flower…yet My Wife thinks I am an awesome flower giving husband)
If you do not know the story on My Wife and flowers, I will tell it again soon but let us simply say right now…umm, I am not sure there is a polite way to say this…I messed up very much bad and am lucky My Wife kept me with my flower SNAFU from back in the day. Here is the story
But in my defense I am a guy!
Hope you have a wonderful Mother’s Day (all you moms reading this) and hope you remember to get flowers or a card (all you husbands and kids reading this) and thank you for taking the time to read.
If you have any questions about leaving a legacy for a charity (like My Wife and I to UT) or other cause you like, you do not have to have a lot of money to make it happen. Just give me a call.
Later in the day update: the flowers my three katz got Mommy and Grand Mommy
Thank you for reading
