Quickest way for me to embarrass my Husband....

....IS, to without him knowing, and while he's standing there, ask Grandma to take the kids home from church for a couple of hours. Yup, that's it, and I know this because that's what I did Sunday. It was so cute to see him turn several shades of pink before hitting red. Just as he started sweating, he bolted out the back of the church. I tossed the kids in Grandma's car and headed home with Honey. On the way home it was....

Honey: "Honey, WHY do you do that?"

Me: (all innocent of course) "Do what?"

Honey: "You know what!"

Me: (now laughing) "Yes I do!"

Honey: "Babe, you know she knows what we are gonna to be doin'."

Me: "Well yeah, I suspect she may have an idea." (still giggling) "Then again, she could think we're just working on our taxes."

Honey: (Just shook his head and rolled his eyes)


Later, I go get the kids. I walk in and find Grandma standing in the kitchen wearing a huge smile. I give her a squeeze and tell her thank you, only to hear her giggle. Again, my question is, "WHAT?" She tells me, "oh, nothing." I smiled and told her we were just doing our taxes and we will be getting quite a refund. We are both laughing now.....her response, "REALLY?"

Needless to say, Honey didn't show up until much later, lol!

*Side note: Grandma is neither his or my Mother, she is our neighbor. We don't have any family here and she has totally adopted my two kids as her very own Grandchildren. (lucky me)

“Next to being shot at and missed, nothing is really quite as satisfying as an income tax refund."

Grandma and I are the ones that consider ourselves lucky!

You are so lucky to have a wonderful Grandma to watch you kids. It is nice you guys get some alone time.

I wish I had someone close.

Oh my..I laughed at Renee too because I SO have no idea what the service was about. I admitt, I was way to preoccupied with other things, lol. One of which was plotting my plan.

Ha ha ha! Well, your side note explains a little more why your hubby would be so embarrassed about that. (But then again- my hubby and I are pretty open about that stuff with my parents...and something tells me that's not normal. LOL)
