Sh*t My Husband Says

I came up with an idea last week after my wonderful husband said something that he probably shouldn't have. I'm going to share those genius statements with you guys. I can't be the only one with a husband that sometimes doesn't think before he talks. I just can't.

I'm not doing this because I think he's an asshole or because I'm mad at him. I'm doing this because I think it is hysterical!

These statements are all pretty predictable on how they play out. 9 times out of 10, Danny will share his thought and as soon as it comes out of his mouth he is already saying, "I'm sorry, that was really dumb," we both laugh and he tries again. The other one time though. He'll say something questionable and doesn't realize what he has said so I give him a "did you really just say that? because any other woman would claw your eyes out" kind of look. He'll say it again in his head and realize what I heard. Again, we laugh and its a good time for both of us. My reaction to these statements isn't really dependent on how my day has gone. I think I could have a stressful day at work and one of Danny's lines would be just what I need to lighten my mood.

Mr. Summers is getting really good at not thinking before he talks. Sometimes it would happen when we were dating and engaged, even in the first year of our marriage. But now that I'm pregnant? I can think of 3 good ones right now, 2 of which I am going to share with you today.

Early in the pregnancy, I'd say I was about 9 or 10 weeks, I was exhausted. Not that I feel much different now! I was bitching and moaning about it and how I didn't want to do laundry. Danny proceeded to say something along the lines of "Just wait honey, you're not even that pregnant yet!" Oh, I'm not? I could of swore that when you piss on that stick and it says "positive" four times, you're pregnant. Lets not excuse the fact that I've been to the doctor twice and we've heard the heartbeat. This is one of those that required "the look" for him to realize that he was kind of an idiot.

The next one happened last week, and is what inspired me to share this lovely part of my marriage with you. I forget what day it was, but it was scorching hot outside. Danny decided to ride his bike 11 miles, which I think is nuts in that heat considering the humidity, but whatever. My husband is a badass and thats all there is too it. I got home from work and I'm sure the day wasn't a breeze, but I wasn't in a bad mood. Shortly after I get home, Danny comes in, out of breath and drenched in sweat. I was standing in the bedroom either changing clothes or folding some laundry and he comes in there. As he's walking into our room he states "You know, when the baby gets here, you're going to have a lot of catchin' up to do!" No shit? Thanks for the reminder that I've already gained back the weight that I lost and exercising has become a thing of the past. Immediately after he was done saying it, he said "That was really dumb, let me try this again!" He walked out, came back in and tried again, saying something like "I can't wait until the baby is here and you can ride your bike with me again." Much better Mr. Summers, much better!

Isn't he adorable?

Please share with me the remarkable things your husband or significant other has said!!  :)


  1. Bahaha oh my gosh he sounds like my husband. The other day I showed him my bumpdate picture and he said, "you aren't even showing yet." Oh, I am sorry Mr. Curtis, I guess I didn't realize that I had always had that huge protruding fat pooch on my belly! lol

  2. haha i can totally relate to this. the other day I had on a new tshirt. well i bought the tshirt from a friend who is raising $ for her adoption. the front of the shirt says love BIG. and BIG is written across the belly. when I walked in the door, my loving husband asked me what the shirt meant....and if it meant I was embracing things. UMMMMMMM, AM I EMBRACING MY BIG SIZE?! thanks for that. he immediately realized what he said. luckily I laughed, I could have easily cried. :)
