Your husbands...ha! Thought I was gonna say nose, huh? But can you pick your husband's friends?
Isabella and I have made new friends via Little Gym. The mommy is named Cathleen and her 15 month old son is Mitchell. They are very sweet and Isabella likes them both very much. My husband was totally on board with the new friendship until we got invited to a swim party with them, the husband/daddy, and some other friends.
I could hear the cringe in Heath's voice when I mentioned it. I swear he started rattling off excuses like:
Isn't my mother having eye surgery the day before? (yes, with her best friend staying that day and a whole other week to care for her)
Don't we have to finish remodeling the guest bathroom? (mmmkay, its only been stripped of paper for 2 months now)
Isn't your sister's baby shower that weekend? (no, love, it is at the end of July)
So, my question is...Isn't it only FAIR that he has to meet my new friends and tolerate a few get togethers? I sure have tolerated his friends the last five years and the endless "when we were young" stories. (Some still think they're the young studs they once were but that's a whole other blog)
He will go to the party for a couple of reasons: 1) He loves me, and more importantly, 2) he loves to swim. So I figure I'll get his favorite swim trunks, he can wear his cute daughter on his arm and possibly he'll make a new friend or two!
See? the years of my parents forcing me to attend social functions are paying off!
