The W Family Chronicles

A new feature…real W family conversations!

Posted on: November 1, 2007

We just had this discussion:

(Picture me, laying on the couch with a pitiful and pained expression…I am really feeling *very* bad and fully prepared to take advantage of that.)

M: Would you get me a drink?

D gets up and heads into the kitchen where he discovers we’re out of lemonade, my normal drink of choice at home.  (There is some evidence that *real* lemonade may help prevent kidney stones.  I go through a lot of it.)  Asks if I want water.  No, I do not…there is lemonade in the outside fridge.  He returns with the lemony goodness and settles back down.

M: What I really wanted was for you to go to the store and get me a Mountain Dew.  But thanks for the lemonade.

D: Why should I go out and get you a drink?  You wouldn’t even do that for me if I was on my deathbed!

M: Of course I would.  Actually, no I wouldn’t.  I’d be afraid you’d die while I was gone.  But I’d definitely send someone else out to get it for you.

Yes, this conversation really did occur.  Perhaps it isn’t funny to anyone but us, but I knew I had to share it with the internet.

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
