Why I'm Such a Catch

Chichi is one of those toddlers who has to grab everything. She relentlessly rummages through every drawer, closet, and pile of things that she can get her hands on, in a manner that can only be described as perpetual, chaotic, circuit training. Nothing within her reach is safe.

We have a console table that has been declared a no go zone for keys, mail, etc. since the table is no longer high enough to keep Chichi at bay. This morning I noted that hubby's Blackberry was on this table. He knows that this is a bad idea, but he does it anyways, probably out of carelessness or laziness, or whatever. I decided not to mention it to him because I always seem to be 'nagging' him about this, and it has no effect on him. I also decided not to move it because I always seem to be picking up after him this way.

Not only am I a great wife for not nagging, and for giving him the opportunity to find his toy right where he left it, but I also did not utter one single, "serves you right", when he reported to me that it no longer works after finding Chichi chewing and drooling on it this morning.

Now I feel bad about throwing my husbands shoes out the front door onto the lawn after tripping over them for the billionth time because he never puts them away. But then again I as well didn't say "I told you so".

Further proof that nagging is, in fact, a public service. I am not above a spirited "I told you so" in instances such as this! You possess an enviable level of self-control.

Now, the husband would call me out for my passive-aggressive behaviour, but I am totally with you on this one. (Question is - do you think he will learn his lesson. Sadly, my husband wouldn't..)

LOL I would totally have taken the high road, just like you did!

What I want to know is, does your hubby know that you observed what he had done, foresaw the outcome and did nothing to prevent it...or does he think you had no clue? Either way, good on ya!
