I know, I know. I swore up and down no more posts until after October 24. Well....I lied. The first part of this post is a Youtube video.
Granted, it is not about pregnancy. But, it should be. This is why men do not have children. My friend, Lindsey Buchheit, and I have a theory about the role of husbands during the nine months of pregnancy. Husbands, boyfriends, significant others, partners, etc tend to get very whiney and helpless. This is a very natural way for women to prepare caring for infants before the baby is actually ever born. The woman is forced to tend to her very, very "sick" husband for nine months while she is at least 20 pounds heavier, every spot on her body is aching, has ached, or will ache, she is exceedingly exhausted, and she probably spends at least a third of those nine months hovering over a toilet. Jump forward to labor and delivery. Dear husband suddenly gets better but now the poor wife gets to turn around and care for a truely helpless infant. Talk about being well rehearsed! It makes so much more sense to me now. ;) Oh, and this whole idea of men being "sick" (having pregnancy symptoms) while his wife is pregnant isn't a myth. It is known as Couvade Syndrome and is well studied.
P.S. Lee, I still very much love you. Even despite your 6 month cold and your need for a Snoogle. :)
The picture I am posting was a fun photo op that we just had to take advantage of. Lee thinks I have the world's best beer belly (uhhh, thanks?). Just call me Homerette Simpson! Hahaha. Note the shirt. Yep, that's a shout out to our past beer drinking times at good ol' UW! GO POKES!
