Pity My Wife: I Got Her Measuring Cups for Mother’s Day

by doodaddy on May 10, 2009

Really nice measuring cups, though. The ones Alton Brown uses. And his mixing bowls, too. And it still counts as a present even though I’m using mixing bowls more than she is these days. Right?

Yeah, you don’t need to tell me: those are crappy presents. Or to be more specific, they are great housewarming presents, crappy Mother’s Day presents. Luckily, she’s having too much fun with these to notice:

“Smile!”

On a related note, it’s one of my stay-at-home-dad life’s great joys that I get to hang out with so many mothers. Moms are the coolest — I learn more from you than a thousand how-to parenting books could ever teach.

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone!

Allow me to join in and say Happy Mother’s Day to the mothers. I got my wife a bath robe that I’ll spend tomorrow trying to exchange or return. I think I would have had better luck with the cups.

Um, I won’t tell Working Mom what arrives for me today. [It rhymes with SchiSchmac.] But measuring spoons are really nice too.

@Aimee Greeblemonkey – Wow, you’re getting an eye wax, too? Cool!

And don’t sell me short — it wasn’t measuring spoons, it was measuring *cups*!
