My husband. He’s an outdoorsy guy through and through, and a very good daddy. He teaches the kids how to build things, how to take care of the yard, how to grow good things to eat…
He’s definitely a hands-on dad. In more ways than one. Yup, that’s a groundhog.
And now that I’ve gotten that little disclaimer out of the way, can I just tell you that my husband is terrible with housework? If he were to read this (Hi, Honey!) he would disagree with me and tell you that everyone has their own way of doing things, and that my way isn’t always the “right way,” but the man dusts the living room furniture with a dry paper towel. And he wants to know why I go a little nuts sometimes.
A paper towel.
Laundry is one of our biggest issues. We married a little later on in life, after both of us had lived alone and done our own laundry for a while, so we had lots of time to get pretty set in our ways. (With some of those ways being better than others…) After 6 years of marriage, we’ve come to compromises on a lot of things, but when it came to the biggest riddle of housekeeping in all of history, I needed backup.
Yes, I’m talking about how to fold a fitted sheet. My husband was adamant that the proper folding method includes wadding it up in a ball and tossing it on the top shelf of the closet. (Or just always keeping it on the bed, of course.) When I needed someone to back me up with directions and proof that it could actually be done, I hit up P&Geveryday. The site features content and resources on beauty, family, food, health, home and more – all alongside great offers from the trusted brands you love. And if you need instructions on how to fold anything, they’ve got your covered.
Once I had a reputable source to back me up, that argument was mine. And now that the bathroom remodel is almost done, I’m kind of glad they have instructions on the proper folding and rolling of a bath towel, too, because I feel that one coming…
But no worries, he’s learning (even if I do have to be tricky about it sometimes.) And while I’m at it, I’m getting my little one good and trained, too…see? 🙂
