Today is Lazy Dad and my Anniversary.
12 years of twists, turns, ups, downs, highs, lows. You know, the kind of roller coaster ride every marriage has.
This morning I woke up to find a sweet little surprise waiting for me in the kitchen. And by sweet, I mean SWEET!
A 12 pack of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. Mm, mm.
(12 pack… get it? 12… for 12 years of marriage?)
(Okay, I’ll be honest, it didn’t dawn on me until I called him to thank him for it.)
(What? Sometimes I’m a little slow, but Jesus still loves me.)
So I called him to thank him for the 12 pack of sweetness, but I also called him to razz him a little bit.
You see, the card he got me? Um, I don’t think it makes sense. I read the front. Read the inside. And uh, didn’t get it (again, I’m sometimes a little slow, but Jesus still loves me, remember?).
So I’m thinking to myself, “Self! Why don’t I get this card? I don’t get the punch line. Something seems weird here.”
And then I realized, it’s because (in my opinion) the card was meant for a wife to give to a husband! NOT for a husband to give a wife. And so I laughed to myself, “Self! That’s funny!”
So yeah, I called to razz him about that. (But just a little… it is our anniversary after all.)
But as the razzing commenced, Lazy Dad stood his ground. HE believes the card is totally meant for a husband to give to a wife.
He even threw in another man’s opinion… a fella he was with when he picked the card out totally thought the card was perfect for him to give me.
*I* still think it’s meant to be given the other way around.
So I said to him, “Well, this just showcases how different we think!” and we both chuckled. Because, okay, if you haven’t learned to embrace your differences after 12 years of marriage, good luck to you! Plus, that’s just funny.
And so, my dear lazy moms, I need your help. (You didn’t think you’d get out of this, did you?)
What say you?
Does this anniversary card make sense from a husband to a wife? Or from a wife to a husband? (Or maybe both??) Help us out!
Okay, even just reading that again, I still think this is a card meant for a wife to give a husband! What do you think???
