Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week, 11 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.

My subject is “Change places with a significant other and tell us about you from their point of view.” It was submitted by http://BakingInATornado.com Here goes…
I had to read this a few times…to make sure I understood it. My brain has been a bit fried lately. So, I have to trade places with my hubby for the day…and complain about me…like I do about him? Or do I tell about what I do through his eyes??? Hmmm so many ways this can go.
Here I am playing the role of wife and mom. It can’t be that hard, can it? Karen makes it harder than it has to be…she’s so dramatic and indecisive. I make up my mind and go for it.
The day starts and I have to get up at 5 am? Why? Does she really need an hour to get ready? I decide to sleep later, but Anthony wakes up at 5:30 and barges in and tells me he’s up and ready to go. Darn it…she’s in bed. Shouldn’t she be up and helping me?
I have to take a shower, get dressed, get his darn lunch box organized. Why didn’t she pack the d#mn think last night…how does all this fit into a lunch bag? We need to have a talk.
Wait, I have to put my lunch together too? Does she really eat this healthy stuff? Oh wait, I need to make breakfast? I need to get our guy dressed? I need to bring all this crap with me? I though she just sits with kids and reads books.
Here I am ready to leave and she’s still sleeping. How long does it take a person to “wake up”? She’s doing it on purpose to get back at me.
I guess I’ll leave now and hope she gets up to feed our son and bring him to the bus.
What? I have to listen to dumb books on tape? Who listens to books while driving to work? I want news and music.
Okay, I survived her day of work. I can’t believe she has to actually teach students, take attendance, write reports, plan lessons, consult with teachers, email other teachers, and save and organize all this work.
Now I have to drive home and go pick up Dino without stopping home first.
I need a moment alone and I can’t get one…I miss having that alone time after Anthony gets on the bus.
What??? I have to clean out our lunch containers, make lunch for tomorrow, get dinner ready, and do homework with Dino, get my work ready for tomorrow? What???? I have to play with my son, give him a bath, read books, and put him to bed. When will I get a f&cking break?
It’s 8:30 and our son is finally in bed and all I want to do is go to sleep. I still have to clean up, organize the rest of my work and bags. I have not had one moment to myself. I think I’ll be a bit more understanding of my wife and all she does.
Of course that is what I’d imagine or LIKE him to say.
Now to be fair…I’m going to ask hubby to do the same thing and I’ll post it next Friday. What does he think I’d say if we switched places???
I do love my hubby. He’s a great dad, even if he acts like a big kid most of the time. Dino loves his daddy and loves when we are all home together.
What do you think your spouse would say if you switched places?
