There’s eleventy hundred reasons I love him.
But sometimes it’s the littlest things that make you glad you married your best friend.
In the midst of the Christmas chaos, Itty Bit’s advent activity for the day was a little cardboard racecar. With approximately 1,714 tiny parts and instructions written in wee Japanese.
After a long week, the man didn’t hesitate as he sat down to solve the Part XEI attach Part 92Y in north left quadrant 60 angle craziness.
He might have sort have mumbled something about that stupid Target Dollar Section, but he still willingly suffered for his kid.
And let me tell you… the image of him using a magnifying glass WHILE wearing his hilarious Walmart reading glasses… is one that cracks me up and makes my heart do a funny flip all at the same time.
(Seriously… the dude keeps those crazy glasses because he once had a dog that chewed on them and he misses that dog. Love the story, but he completely earns every guffaw when he puts them on).
The car took 45 minutes to put together. And lasted all of 45 seconds. Apparently Itty Bit needed to “check the engine compartment”.
But that man sitting there, impressing the heck out of his mini-me… (doofy glasses and all)…
is something I hope the little guy remembers as one of his favorite Christmas memories.
I’m feeling a bit sentimental and scared tonight.
In a few hours we hit the road for that all-important “surgical consult”.
My stomach doesn’t like those words.
Would you please pray for that ornery, wonderful, bad taste in glasses man of mine?
(And pray that he finds his blogging mojo soon… anyone volunteer to pester him about that? ;)
We appreciate you.
And I promise to catch up with all of you soon… I’m ready to quit being overwhelmed.
