“Jesus loves me, I mean whats not to love”. For anyone who thinks I exaggerate when I write stuff about the hubby, doesn’t that title pretty much sum it all up? Need I say more? I think not. I think my superpower is being his wife…just sayin’. And it’s really good to know that he’d like to shoot me with a tranquilizer dart. Of course, I’m not sure I’d object all things considering. He was probably still high from all the sugar and junk food he consumed during the 12 hour drive. I know, shocking. Mr. My Body Is A Temple was like a human garbage disposal. In a 12 hour period he ate the following:
Peanuts, 2 bags of beef jerky, a bag of Munchos, chick-fil-a, whataburger, wendy’s and probably more I can’t even remember, and not only all that but when he finished his snacks he tried to pilfer off the kids and then had the audacity to complain when our oldest daughter’s bag of chips ahoy cookies were gone. He actually asked her if she chewed or just swallowed them whole. Hello, pot I’d like you to meet kettle.
We headed to the beach today! Here are some pics of our fun in the sun.
The water is clear and warm and amazing. No algae or excessive seaweed this year. And we only had one beach incident, although it was rather major and embarrassing. Man-child got a little rash, we probably stayed out for to long, and I’m sure being exhausted had a lot to do with it, but still…. He hiked his swim trunks up so high, I’m pretty sure he flashed some people, and if that weren’t bad enough it was accompanied by pitiful wailing and high-pitched bawling, following by declarations of “It hurts!”, “I can’t stop crying”, “carry me”, “I can’t walk!”. It got so bad, some nice lady came by and offered to pull our beach cart which was loaded down with chairs, towels and an umbrella. I knew it was bad when I looked back and see that vein pulsing in hubby’s neck and forehead. Oh boy. It was a loooooooooooooong walk home, or at least is seemed that way. After, man-child was showered and dried off, I took a look at the cause of all this distress. He pointed to it, but I still didn’t see anything. In his defense, my contacts were a little cloudy, so I set him under the light, so I could see better. Oh, there it is. A teensy tiny little spec of a rash, I’m not even sure it could be called a rash, but I took it very seriously and we “doctored” it right away. I don’t know where I went wrong. When he was a baby, I didn’t coddle him. I’m more of the rub some dirt in it type of mother. I’m hoping this is just a phase, but my goodness, that was an awful lot of hoopla for such a tiny little pinprick of a boo boo. Of course, later he declared it my fault because we stayed at the beach too long. Naturally. When I pointed out that I suggested we leave earlier, and he argued, he declared “but mom, I’m just a kid!”. Oh goodness me.
The highlight of the day clearly occurred though as two teenage boys told hubby that he looked exactly like….
wait for it….
oh it’s worth the wait…..
Apparently, my husband is a dead ringer for….
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino (from Jersey Shore).
I have included a pic of each of them, you can decide for yourselves. I have to enter a disclaimer here though. My husband categorically denies any resemblance whatsoever and even though the boys followed their declaration with “dude, it’s a compliment”, he wasn’t feeling very flattered. It was quite the discussion at dinner to even be allowed to include this tidbit, but it was certainly the highlight of my day. So here are the pics (notice despite his protestations otherwise, he did pose for the comparison pic)
I have to giggle.
After dinner, we headed to Destin Commons, an outdoor shopping experience. Here are some pics:
Man-child doesn’t look very excited here, but he loves this contraption. It’s one of his favorite things to do. Other kids are jumping and laughing, but otherwise pretty quiet. Not our boy. No, he is streaming a running commentary on everything from his mad jumping skills to how much fun he is having to how many back flips he could do if he wanted to. He was a big hit with the staff, and notice the harness doesn’t seem to bother the “rash”.
All in all, it was a fun and relaxing day, and pretty uneventful for us anyway. Tomorrow we have more beach fun, and dinner at Fudpuckers complete with gator feedings! Woo hoo!
