How to keep the spark in your marriage

May 19, 2008 at 11:49 pm | Posted in M'ijo, PiliPiliPili | 14 Comments

This post is for Kerri, who is off gettin’ married. A big congratulations to Kerri, Chris & the indomitable Siah Sausage. For their newlywed edification, I present the following scene from married life:

The Scene: Pili is reading aloud to me from Yet Another Stupid Parenting (YASP) Magazine Article about the keys to a happy marriage, P’ito is standing on the bench in the breakfast nook next to her.

YASP: We sneak away for dinner or for some “us time” in the bedroom

Me: “Us time in the bedroom?” Why don’t they just say UH-UH-UH-UH! (punctuated with appropriate Elvis-like pelvic motions)

P’ito: UH-UH-UH-UH! (pelvic thrusts)

Pili: I hope he doesn’t do that at daycare.

Me: (insert maniacal giggles)

Pili, sighing: You’re going to blog about this, aren’t you?

  1. heh.
    Now of course, you do understand, that there will be mass cheering for videos of Elvis ala P’ito. Just saying…


  2. Agreed…Gotta see the video!

    And I hope he DOES do it at daycare!

  3. HA! You have to teach him to say “Hunk-a hunk-a burnin’ love” to go with that!

  4. Bwahahahahaha!

  5. That is funny!

    Kids = never ending source of entertainment (and work).

  6. hahahahaha

  7. ROFLOL!

  8. LOL.
    my husband watches what he says all the time now as he’s worried he’ll accidentally say something asinine and i’ll blog it.

    as for the pelvic thrusting? i assure you he will do it at daycare. julian repeated after me numerous times after i dropped the f bomb yesterday. game over.

  9. It is only the things that you don’t want them to do at daycare that they will do at daycare. A new skill like counting? Nah. Pelvic thrusting? Guaranteed.

  10. Tee hee

  11. My husband also lives in fear that I will blog the more private stuff or the occasionally ridiculous things he does. I tell him, if it’s funny, it’s in. Thanks for the great story.

  12. They sure know how to imitate, don’t they!?!

  13. LOL! Oh that is fantastic.

  14. They say all kinds of amazing stuff at daycare. When my son was little he went to a nursery school that required the parents to volunteer two hours every other week to do something for the school. I volunteered to be the story lady. I brought a selection of books for three- and four-year-olds and proceeded to read about careers. I read about zoo keepers, airline pilots, firefighters, ballerinas, you name it.
    I then asked the kids what kind of jobs they wanted to do when they grew up. I got the usual responses until I came to a child I’ll call Sam.
    Sam said he wanted to be… a pimp! With “lots of ladies.”
    Where he got this idea, I’ll never know. Sam’s father was an accountant. Unless, of course, the accountant story was just a cover.
    Another time we talked about what kind of things they did over the weekend. A little boy (not Sam) said his daddy went away on a business trip and “Uncle Kevin” slept in his mommy’s bed. With his mommy.
    You have no secrets when you have a child in nursery school.
