I should have cooked after all.

by doodaddy on February 26, 2008


This is what I get for saying
"Smile for the camera!"

Remember when my wife told me she’d get takeout rather than letting me cook for the guests? And I was all paranoid, like "Doesn’t she like my cooking?" and you were all "She’s just trying to make things easier on you!"

Well, she brought home burritos. And spent all day today in major stomach pain. Ach! I’m totally sympathetic and trying to be a good caregiver. I went out for Maalox and rubbed WM’s back during naptime to help her condition, um, pass.

Buy tell me — am I the only parent that thinks when your spouse is sick, "Damn, that means I’m a-gonna be ‘on’ with the kid nonstop for days!"

On the plus side, after my body gave out from a day of hiking, playing, cooking, cleaning, and caring for my wife, Boobaby and I discovered some cool dance music on YouTube. Have you guys heard of a band called "The Wiggles"?

You have? You’ve totally been holding out on me.

My exhaustion notwithstanding, I’m happy to report that spring has sproinged here (again), and nothing could spoil that.

I have to also admit that when Mr. Bum is sick (which isn’t very often) I am guilty of thinking about myself and no help.

Are you talking about The Wiggles in 4 men that have accents and have a show on Nick Jr? If so we totally know who they are. Lil’ Bum was never really big on them but in the morning while we get ready for work Baby Bum likes to watch them. The bright colors and up beat music really gets him.

i love the wiggles. they have a show on some kids cable channel, and we have a couple of old video tapes of the show (from years ago) that a friend passed onto us. the music is great, and those guys are a lot of fun. my only complaint, at least with the old tapes we have, is that the production quality of the show is very low. i hate the costumes, choreography, set design, animation…well, you get the picture. but then, i can be a bit of a snob when it comes to (visual) aesthetic concerns. cosmo loves them, and i think just listening to the music is probably the way to go.
