A Good Husband

This conversation took place in a couple of parts (different times/days), but here's the gist of it.

Kid: Poppa, you're not a good husband.
Me/Hubby/My mom: What? Why not?
Kid: Just 'cause.
Me: Well, what makes a good husband, kid?
Kid: Well, a good husband has to have his financials all in a row.
Me: (trying not to bust out laughing, for he is quite serious) What does that mean?
Kid: Well, momma. You know. I don't need to explain it to you.
Me: Okay. So what else makes a good husband?
Kid: (sighs in exasperation insinuating that obviously I should know this already) Momma, you know he has to have good politics.
Me: Of course. What do you think makes good politics?
Kid: Well, how am I supposed to know that!?! I'm just a kid. But I just know it's important. Duh.
Me: Ah, right. Okay, so what else is important?
Kid: That's it. I've explained this to you. And, really, you should know already, shouldn't you?
Me: Probably. But, just so you know, Poppa is a really good husband. And you know what's super important that you left off your list?
Kid: What, momma?
Me: Love. A husband should love his wife. That is of the utmost importance in making a good husband.
Kid: Oh, well, in that case, Poppa is a good husband, isn't he?
Me: Yes, yes he is.

Today's Lesson: Love. A husband should love his wife. That is of the utmost importance in making a good husband. And I am blesses with a wonderful one.

LOL! Love it. I would add "Folds the laundry once in a while." With love, of course. ;-)
