To start off, let me just say I absolutely love my husband. He’s a wonderful man who does everything in his powers to make me as happy as he can. After this disclaimer, I think it’s safe to put up this poetry that may or may not seem exaggerated … but hope that it gets a few understanding nods and smiles anyways!
When we got married, it was made very clear
That he was the elder of the two by a long year.
He said he’d take care of me, I had nothing to worry –
So long as I learnt how to make his favourite curry.
A life of pampering and coddling is what I can expect…
Just as soon as he finishes watching the show coming up next.
He promised he would do anything just to make me smile…
Elbow-deep in dirty dishes…I knew it would be quite some while.
His puppy dog eyes would fill me with deep regret
For saying all the things cranky people said.
But I knew things were headed way downhill
When he said the words that gave me a chill –
“Let’s have a baby!” he said, all happy and joyful.
“Another child?!” I thought, feeling super frightful!
