Parenting Skillz

Manly Man and I have been developing our parenting skillz for years but not with children or for the idea of children but with each other.

Him: Are you going to throw away that wrapper and put the bowl in the sink?
Me: (barely listening) Mmmmhmmm….
Him: I’m not doing it this time, you’re going to do it, right?
Me: Mmmmmhmmmm

Later on…

Me: What happened to the stuff of mine you said you wouldn’t pick up for me?
Him: Yeah, I took care of it :annoyed:


Me: Did you get that stuff done you said you would?
Him: Not yet.
Me: When will you?
Him: Soon.
Me: Ok, because…you know…it really needs to be done.
Him: :rolleyes:
Me: Don’t roll your eyes at me mister!

    Mike and I are like that, especially the first one. I’m messyish and mike is anal retentively clean, so he gets irritated and cleans up after me.

    How many times I gotta tell you to put the seat down?
    Why didn’t you call if you were going to be late?
    Do you NOT see the hamper BESIDE the dirty clothes?

    Ah yes, parenting skills don’t stop at potty training. Even grownass men need training.
