That's what husbands do!
May 26th, 2014

We invited Olivia's friend Amanda to sleep over. "Her daddy said it's OK, but he needs to check with her mommy first," updated Claus.

"Oh, of course," said my sometimes precocious-seeming six year old. "That's what husbands do."

"Do?" I asked.


"Yeah. They always need to check with their wives first before they can do anything," clarified Olivia, without meaning to be funny.

Claus and I laughed out loud. Then his laugh faded and his wide smile tightened up into a little pout while he faux-glared at me from a place where the kid couldn't see him. I shrugged. She might be speaking the truth!
