The Things We Do..

My lovey dovey told me in the car yesterday that he was enumerating the things that he does everyday to his boss. Apparently his boss told him that he cannot stay still and that he is always on the go.

His boss also told him, afterwards, that he is not to mention these to his boss’ wife.

He went on:

I stand up in the morning

Prepare your breakfast, eat my breakfast

Go take a shower

Get ready for work

Prepare our lunch

Take Sidney to the creche

Go to work

Work, work, work

Pick you up from work

Arrive home, talk a bit to Mam and Pap

Eat dinner together

Kiss Sidney goodnight

Cook dinner for the next day

Do the administration of expenses

Do the groceries online (Wednesday only)

Sit in the couch to watch tv and fall asleep

Go to bed at 12MN

Sleep.. And wait for the alarm to ring at 6am

And you?

Wake up at 6:20am

Take a shower, get ready for work

Eat the breakfast I made for you

Fix your bag with the lunch I prepared

Take the bus, go to work

Work, work

Wait for me to pick you up

Talk with Mam and Pap for a while

Eat the dinner I prepared

Change into comfortable pajamas

Go with Sidney to bed and read her bedtime story

Fall asleep there

Wake up and come back to kiss me goodnight

Go to bed between 10pm or 11pm

Wow! When he said it like this: I feel so lazy and useless! 😣😒

And he laughed!

However, he forgot to mention that in between all those “lines” that make me feel so pampered, I was the one taking care of our daughter:

Playing with her

Answering her questions

Preparing her and dressing her up for school

Brush her teeth

Comb her hair

Preparing her bag and things for the day

And just basically stay with her

.. While her Papa tramples away with the housework

(Weekends are different, by the way, except for the food part.  He doesn’t trust me with healthy food!)

I am a Filipino, after all, he said! (We just love too much rice and warm, streaming food – 3 x a day!)
