Proof that men never listen

dh is always off on thursdays b/c they work on the weekends. so he picks up the (older) kids from the sitter and school and they hang out until i get home. well, i made hair cut appointments for me and my older daughter today at 5 p.m. So i tell him to take her down there (it's a block away so we always walk) at 5, i'll pick up the baby and meet them there. i also asked him to put the lasagna in the oven at 4 p.m. so that it would be ready for dinner when we were all done with hair cuts and to shower the kids before i get home since he has fire fighting training tonight and i am tired and want to go to bed as soon as i get them in bed and the fewer tasks i have the better.

so i decide at 4 p.m. to check in with him. i actually debated whether or not to give him the benefit of the doubt and almost didn't make the call. but i did. so i say i'm calling to remind him about dinner. what about dinner, he wants to know. to put it in the oven, i say. the kids are already eating, he says. at four o'clock in the afternoon? why? because they have hair cuts at 5, he says. so at this point i start smiling and laughing. he does have the kids showered and in jammies but totally screwed up dinner. so i say what are you making for us? well, nothing because he was picking off what the kids were having. so now i'm stuck having a stinking ham sandwich for dinner when i could have had lasagna!

so i keep telling him that he didn't listen to anything i said this morning. he says yes he did listen and that i was just mad because it wasn't getting done my way. and i assured him that i wasn't mad and was indeed trying to squelch my laughter (my cheeks were hurting because i was smiling so big).

so anyway. that's my chuckle for the day and proof that men never listen.
