Men and their "toys"

**We are still alive! I promise I'll update what we've been doing lately! This sudden burst of summer weather here in Maine has us outside all day long and this mamma is tired at the end of the day! 

So, here's a "funny" for you in the meantime! 

It's not a surprise my husband has a hard time multi-tasking. When the girls are barking orders to him, he most often responds "daddy can only do one thing at a time!"

When the girls are barking orders at me, I most often respond "Mommy can only do several things at a time, and right now, I am at my quota!"

So, the other day we were getting back from the beach. We had forgot the girls swimsuits at the showers, so Kevin & Callum made their way back to the beach, which was just two miles away. While they were retrieving the swim suits, I was getting Clara to bed for a nap, and Mairead &  Lilah into the shower, and making a phone call to my girlfriend, Christina, who had just spent half of her day driving to see a rental home we were very interested in. Like I said, doing multiple things at a time.

Once Kevin returned home, he came quickly upstairs. I was still chatting away with my girlfriend. Then, at the corner of my eye, I see something. My naked husband. Now before you start to wonder where this is going, keep reading..........I continue chatting on the phone trying not to pay attention to my husband. He starts to try to "be a man" and say to me "honey. I am naked."

My response: "Uh huh" and continue chatting.

He walks closer.

I back up.

He continues acting like a horny teenager.

I continue my conversation trying not to pay attention. Oh. Did I mention I was naked, too? You see, I was just about to get into the shower with the girls when I remembered I had to call my girlfriend back to hear all about this fantastic home......but, I wasn't naked for the same reason he was. You know that.

Anyways, Kevin continues his antics. And I realize one thing.

Callum was not upstairs with us. So, I interrupt my friend and ask where Callum was.

Kevin's response......

"OH shit! He's still in the car!" 

He quickly gets dressed and retrieves our seven week old son in the car. By himself.

Like I said. Men have a hard time multi-tasking.
