My Husband doesn't understand me



See that look on his face? There he is, confused and bewildered. We went to Lowe's to pick up a few tiles and things - see the stack of tile in the trunk by his knee? So, he opens the trunk of my van to put the tile in and he finds.... three strollers, a potty chair and a 40lb bag of dog food.

What is there to be confused about?

The dog food: We needed more and I bought a bag, but when I came home I had to bring in the two little girls, diaper bag, purse, groceries... and then my hands were full and I left the super heavy bag of dog food in the van for him to go out and get it. Then I forgot to tell him.

The potty chair: When you gotta go - you gotta go!

Three strollers: Duh. Might need this one or that one or the other one! One is a double, one is a full size single and the other one is the little umbrella. I don't like to have the wrong stroller with me. I left one at home and one at the babysitter's house, it's not like I'm taking them all with me everywhere I go. Just a trunkload.

What is there to be confused about? Men!

LOL I've been trying to take a handful of crap with me everytime I get out of the car, you know the mail and stuff. The back usually has a huge softball bag, case of water and a saxaphone. Which leaves no room for anything else!

Oh, there is a case of water in there too... I drink a lot of water, so I just leave a case in there. I explained the logic of keeping a case of water in the trunk a thousand times, I think he finally understands that one.

You would think that after 20 years and 4 children he would understand you. Don't worry, I have a bunch of tae kwon do stuff in my trunk.

After bringing in the mail, the kids stuff, my stuff, and getting the kids in...there is no time to get anything else out of the van. He should know that by now. Silly man.

I showed Rodney without letting him read the post and he said "I know that look well. He is thinking What the Hell? Why do you need 3 strollers in the trunk?" LOL....men!

Yup, I totally get it.

Except the water thing. Water + hot cars = yucky things leaching from the plastic into the water that are way bad for you. Just be careful with that one!

I don't understand the confusion either. Clearly, different situations call for different strollers. And I wouldn't want to carry in a big ol' bag of dog food either, especially since you were probably already carrying the littles. Men.

I love the expression on his face... I get that expression all the time... But seriously, it all makes perfect sense... I am wearing that expression right now, since he didn't understand your reasoning for all your essentials...
