Married Life Chats

coming at you from the united kingdom! sharing real-time updates over on the ‘gram!

i’m not sure if it’s because we have a kid now but it seems like a whole lot of our conversations are not public-consumption-appropriate. this basically means it takes me longer to compile a long enough list that is appropriate to share with the world. HA!

maybe i need to do a separate email post about the non-appropriate ones? haha

him: man, atlas has peanut butter all over her hands!
me: yeah, i usually let her crawl around on the carpet and it comes right off.
him: ummmm…

him: it will be fun when atlas comes over!
me: um…you know she lives here right? she’s merely gone for the afternoon.

him: i don’t like smalltalk, i’d rather jump straight into business.
me: that’s how sociopaths do business.

reading through a lot of love notes from ravery’s high school days
me: i mean, you had some girls into you!
him: yeah, i had it going on.
me: you must have been really nice to them
him: what does that mean!?
me: you know i have access to photos of you from high school, right?

related: why i’m glad we didn’t meet in high school

while walking along a train track
him: did you ever used to put a quarter on the train tracks to watch it get flattened?
me: what! a quarter?! okay, money bags. maybe i’d sacrifice a penny.

me: atlas has been staring at herself in the mirror for the past 5 minutes. she’s obsessed with herself.
him: good! she knows she’s cute so good for her.
me: you are so her father. neither of you have a met a mirror you didn’t like.
him: *struts by the mirror

eating at a nice restaurant in canada and watching ravery take a bite of gooseberry:
him: try this gooseberry. *takes another nibble
me: what does it taste like? is it good?
him: *takes another little nibble* well it’s sort of like a tart and sweet cherry. try it!
me: eh. i’m good. it’s all yours
him: BABE! i neeeeed you to try this. i have taken three bites trying to convince you it’s good but really it tastes like a fart and i neeeed you to experience it
me: *hysterical laughter and constant refusal*

with that, i know some of you are keeping track of those couple convos so share them with me! also, do you like gooseberries?

ps. MarriageMoon launches next week so make sure you’re on my email list for bonus perks! wooohooooooo!

    Oh my gosh, Atlas in front of the mirror is so adorably cute!!
    I’m laughing so hard about the being nice to girls in high school remark. Hahahaha!!
    I also love your cure to peanut butter hands. And I agree with Mr. WS. Call me a psychopath but I hate small talk, too. Hahahaha.
    I love that he tried to trick you into gooseberries. HAHAHAHA.

    Hi Chelsea, that photo of Atlas is so adorable–love that, it made me smile, and started my week off right. Small talk–in my opinion, it’s this small talk that we miss the most when loved ones die. Cherish it–actually by capturing it in places like this blog, you ARE. You’re such a smart, caring woman/wife/mom.
