Could Women Be Wrong? You Be The Judge.

"Mommy, can I please have a cup of apple juice?" R. asked me.

I was sitting at the dining room table, taking a much needed, 5 minute breather. I looked up into the adjoining kitchen where Mr. Schmitty, standing in front of the stove, was keeping an eye on dinner. He's a dear like that.

"Daddy is standing right next to the refrigerator, could you ask him?" I asked.

"Sure! Daddy? Could I please have a cup of apple juice?" She asked her father.

He answered, "Maybe mommy could get it, I'm busy making dinner."

I looked up from my coloring book, YES, I sometimes color to relax, and cast him a look with a raised eyebrow.

The roast was in the oven, with the digital thermometer stuck in it. The potatoes were simmering on the stove, as was the broccoli. He was standing, about a foot from the stove, arms crossed, staring.


"YES! I'm multi-tasking!"

"Ah, standing and chewing gum, are we?" I snickered.

"No! I am watching THREE timers!!"

"Oh well, in that case......"

Here's more proof that women are *SO wrong about a man's ability to multi-task:

*Please note the tone of sarcasm.

I love to color to de-stress too!

My husband couldn't multi-task to save his life!

*gasp* Sitting down? You slacker!

To answer your question, no. Not in a million years could women be wrong.

I go through that scenario quite often. I will be sitting here at my desk, hard at work.. okay.. reading blogs... and a kid will ask for something. Daddy is right there, at the fridge, with his head poked inside and I will still hear the "grumble grumble I'm busy" noises.

I deal with that all the time...so busy watching NASCAR and reading the stats...poor hubby. As I fold three loads of laundry, help with homework and deal with the kids.

That video was hilarious! I will have to forward that on.
