House Husbands, the New, New Pink

Recently, at a party we hosted Mark got into a discussion with a soon-to-be-husband. This guy was still in the bring home the bacon, head of the house state-of-mind that guys get into when they decide to settle down. He was in charge! Now don't get me wrong, I love it when Mark asserts himself. He is sexy when he jumps on the couch and pounds his chest. So we usually give him the bowl of ice cream he demands. But on this particular night he got into how sweet it is to be a house husband.

Now you all know how I feel about having extra help around the house. But Mark put it in such a way that he had every man in the room looking at their wives in an imploring way. Needless to say he wasn't so popular with some of the ladies. To paraphrase, Mark said that the 6 months he took off to finish his accounting classes after we were married were awesome. All he had to do was get up in the morning, do some homework, make me lunch, then spend the afternoon at the gym. As he said he was in the best shape of his life, the house was in great shape, and I was completely satisfied. What more could a girl ask for?
