Saw that one last night. Didn't say a word - just looked at her, smiled and nodded. Message delivered.

Well... I do the outside stuff and a lot of inside stuff. The problem is, her tolerance of dishes in the sink, clutter on the table is WAY higher than mine.

We should talk offline Casey. Just now getting past a big knock down drag out battle that kind of blew out of proportion on that very topic that started Monday of this week.

How much you charge per hour? ;)

I'll give you guys a little advice. When the washer or dryer breaks or especially the dishwasher-- don't fix it for about a week. You fix it right away-- no big deal. You make them sweat it out for a week, well then they might appreciate it when you get around to it. I usually have to "order parts" -- takes about a week.

Berg... yall make it threw it? LOL... I learned on Wife 1.0 to not sweat the small stuff. Wife 2.0 got a better, more patient man. I just shut up and do the dishes! She walks by and pats me on the bottom occasionally :)

what the news article says works for me. I fix everything, and with 8 kids, I mean I'm constantly fixing everything! Lol. I might help out with cooking a few times a week, but everything else is up to her and the kids. No complaints on the private activities for me! :) Lol.

Jury's still out. I don't think I'm being unrealistic. It's the little things like the "no eating on the couch in front of the tv" rule that I enforce like an 800lb guerrilla and she agrees with. And then I come around the corner and the worst offender kid is sitting right next to her on the couch, watching tv, chowing down on a big bowl of sloppy pasta, chips, etc.

REALLY?

If you don't eat on the couch, where do you eat? :D

Yea, I know its terrible, but it happens almost every night.

LOL! We put a couch in the dining room last week. A big ole L shaped sectional and hung a TV on the wall. Scrapped the dining room table and chairs.

New rule is "No playing video games while you are eating BBQ ribs."

Good rule of thumb, Don't sweat the petty things and don't pet the sweaty things...

I may have just discovered a solution that will keep me from a future night or two on the couch...
