A conversation between my husband and I, this past weekend.
Husband: “Aside from the camera, do you have anything else on your wish list?”
Husband: “I think it would be nice for you if you got a few things that you want.”
Husband: “It feels a little unfair to me that the highlight of your week is the one day of the weekend where you get to go out on your own for a few hours. Isn’t there anything else you want?”
Husband: “We’ll get you a new phone when the baby’s a little older, and not obsessed with playing with it.”
Me: “Oh yes! A new phone (that hasn’t been chewed on, spit on, thrown on the floor, and so old I can’t even download certain apps on it) would be nice.”
Husband: “What else?”
Husband: “Seriously? You can’t think of anything else? The trip to Australia in August is great, but it’d be a family vacation. Would there be anywhere else you want to go? Something you want to do?”
(At this juncture, I was imagining that most people would have already reeled off a list of 10 things they want to buy, and places they would love to go. What the heck was wrong with me?)
Me: “It’d be nice to be able to go to a blog conference. All. By. Myself. But, we both know I can’t leave the kids with anyone for at least another year.”
Husband: “Or two years.”
Me: “So, that’s out of the question.”
Husband: “Yes. For now.”
Me: “We need a new vacuum cleaner.”
Husband: “Okay. Wait, that’s on your wish list?”
Me: “Dude, I clean up crumbs every 5 minutes. YES. Also, a couple of new pillows (that I’ll probably never get to sleep on because I rarely sleep) would be great.”
Husband: “Hmm. Okay. Pillows.”
Me: “Aren’t you glad you married me?”
What’s on your wish list?
