Married Life Chats – Now with a BABY!

By  |  14 Comments

we are long overdue for some insight into the ridiculous things that are often said within a marriage. it’s getting even funnier now that we have added a kid to the mix!

day one home from the birth center after atlas was born:
him: ohhh i found a birth mark on her!
me: are you sure that isn’t dried poop?
him: babe, of course! …oh no, wait you are right – it’s for sure poop.

him: do you want to go see suicide squad?
me: i thought that was a band until about 2 days ago.
him: how are you already such a mom?!

a few days after giving birth and still in a lot of pain…
him: ouch! atlas is pulling on my chest hair – it really hurts!
me: i can’t have you complain about that.

me: do you know where my glasses are?
him: are you serious?
me:Β um, yes.
him: they are literally on your face. you are wearing them.
me: whoa. sleep deprivation is scary.

said randomly to me…
him: if we were both attractive in high school, we never would have met.

me: ew. sugar smells like doritos.
him: gross!
me: ohhh do we have doritos?!
him: gross.

me: yay! our daughter is finally asleep!
him: we should draw on her face…


your turn – share some of the absurd conversations you have been having lately!

    I definitely forget that I’m literally wearing my glasses more than I’d like to admit. I also LOVE these chats you now have with a baby, definitely adds another humourous layer to your relationship!

    “I can’t have you complain about that” – hahahahahaha!
    Aso, this:
    “If we were both attractive in high school, we never would have met.” How are husbands SO flattering some times?? Lol!
    These are all gold.
    (*Also, dog feet smell like cheetos/doritos sometimes because that’s where their sweat glades are!)

    LMAO a whole new dimension with a child πŸ™‚ Gave me a great big smile today.

    I love how you automatically deduce it’s poop and how Ryan thinks to draw on her face.

    Being sleep deprived leads to many interesting conversations, I’m sure.
