My husband is a tree hugger
Ah yes, the leader of the pack!
This tree huggin Papa is the head of the junction. He loves long walk’s on the beach, Jordan Almonds and every now and then get’s a strange craving for Harry Potter vomit jelly beans.
He is known around these parts as “The Kid” as I would consider him an unusually tall, over grown, Hairy armpitted “Child” in the sense that he has the enthusiasm of youth, the innocence of a Wee one and truly enjoys playing on the skateboard that he bought for himself, I mean for his son.
He’s been found wheeling down the road on a tricycle with a screaming child running after him shouting “Daddy! Don’t! It’s Mine! It’s Mih hi hine!”.
Creative little fella this guy can be. Like the time he tried to make shoes for our then 4yr old out of duct tape and construction paper, or the time he tried to make a wind sail out of a wagon, a broom, a bed sheet and a mildly breezy day. Guess how far down the road he got? I’ll give you a hint. It’s about the same length my hair would grow in a 24 hour period if I where to stretch it a bit.
He often likes to say things just to see people’s reaction. For example, He once stopped the car, rolled down the window and asked two random people with a totally straight face if they knew of a good place around here to go tobogganing. (This was in the middle of June in south Texas mind you)
He seems to be a bit accident prone this one. Especially when he buy’s a bike from Wal-Mart, cycles down the street at mach speed and the handle bars fall off.
He has also broken our trampoline. Yep, that’s right. Jumped up, came back down and went straight to the ground with the rest of the black elastic mesh. You should have seen the look on the poor horrified, speechless, any second now the reality of what just happened will thoroughly kick in Children. This is all post my multiple attempts to convince him that he was jumping too high and that he was going to break it. hmmm, what’s that pinterest quote? ” If at first you don’t succeed, try doing it the way your wife suggested in the first place”. Yeah, that’s it!
So of course like a lot of women I know when asked how many children I have I respond with 2, but raising 3. But I tell you what, I have got to be hands down the luckiest women in the world.
I love this kid and I love that him being a kid doesn’t interfere with him being a strong father, husband, and my best friend.
Many more stories to come about this one!
