He Did What!? Wednesday - My Life In Mono

Not So Common Sense - Guest post by My Life In Mono

My Husband, M is off for 10 days and I thought I would catch up with some girlfriends without the Lil Tiger. So today I caught up with a bunch of girlfriends for coffee.

Before leaving the house, I expressed a bottle of breast milk for him to feed the Lil' Tiger if she gets hungry while I was out. I wrote down instructions on how to heat it up:

  1. Boil water
  2. Pour hot water in a cup
  3. Put bottle in water for 2 minutes or until milk is warm
So off I went for 2 hours with my girlfriends. When I got home, I asked M if everything was ok and did the Lil' Tiger need the bottle and he said yes and all was good. Then I went into the kitchen to get a glass of water, I saw the stock pot out filled with water and the empty baby bottle on the side. Curious, I asked M why the stock pot is out.

"I used it to heat up the bottle," he said.

"What do you mean you used it to heat up the bottle?" I asked

"Well you said boil water and put the bottle in the hot water until the milk is warm" he continued.

"Ermm....I assumed that you would boil a kettle of water and pour it into a cup and put the bottle in there. Not boil a put of water and stick the bottle in there. I showed you once before and how did you manage to fish it out?" I said nearly burst out laughing.

"I used the barbecue thongs. No wonder instruction no 2 didn't make any sense at that time".

At this point, I was laughing. I guess it made sense to him to boil water in a stock pot because I have been sterilising the Lil' Tiger's bottle in boiling water in a stock pot.

No one has sent me a She Did What yet and I'll feel awful after ranting on about sexism yesterday if I can't show both sides...

  3. he he! somehow that all made sense to him. just highlights how different our thought processes are. i often watch my hubby do something and wonder why he would choose to do it that way when another way would have been much simpler...*sigh*

    This is exactly why Mr Fussy is not allowed in the kitchen.

  5. I'm always amazed at how men seem to lose their ability to think logically when doing anything involving the care of babies. Give my husband an electrical or computer problem & he's in his element. Ask him to tend to a basic need of a child (like remembering to feed them while I'm out) and he's completely lost!!

  6. Hahaha, "Bbq tongs" excellent

  7. Yea... the giant massive ones too! AHAHHA

  8. Ha ha..I can so relate to this!
    Men can be so funny at times...As long as the job gets done, no complaints here! :)

  9. Hehe!! How would they survive without us, hey? This is hilarious, Feli. I had a similar experience with my hubby in the early days of Ella. Remember, men don't read manuals!!! :)

  10. Haha, when my youngest was a baby her Dad would forget to warm the milk. Luckily, she grew to like it cold! (And we live in Qld so it was kind of a treat!)

  11. Classic! Love that he used BBQ tongs to get it out.

  12. Yup. Men/husbands just aren't that detail-oriented are they?! :)

  13. Aww, I can so see my husband doing this!

  14. It is simply amazing how inventive they are. Or is that.. reinventive?

  15. I should have known that they don't read manuals! hahahaha... but it was pretty interesting.
