This One Goes Out To The One I Love

I want to thank you.

Yes, my love, you. 

I would like to thank you for taking care of things.  You know, like how you took such great care in your PS3 last night.  I know that we don't have a real working toilet in our house now, but that game was calling your name!  I also know that I am the one that broke our working toilet, but I was only trying to help. It is okay that I may have to dunk the diapers until the toilet is fixed properly. And plus, the corner store is only about a mile away. I'm sure the kids won't mind taking the trip in their jammies.

I also want to thank you for your stellar parenting skills. Yes, I stood there trying to put a dent in the ever growing mountain of laundry that is building on the couch. Yes, I had a bunch of it folded nicely on the table and had to leave it to cook dinner for you and the kids. Yes, you sat there playing your game while Kaitlan pulled most of it onto the floor. That is okay, though. I like folding laundry over and over and over and over again. The same laundry. Over and over and over. It's fine that you didn't pick any of that laundry up off of the floor. And that you laughed. I mean, it was kind of funny, huh?

Yeah.

That kind of reminds me of the other day when you and Raiden sat there so entranced in that game that you didn't notice Kaitlan pulling every tissue out of the Kleenex box. Again. But that is okay too. It is also okay that you didn't bother to re-stack the tissues properly. I like the jumbled mess. It's okay.

It is okay because I love you. I love you and I promise I will not retaliate in any way.

Promise.
