Dear spouse

Since some will suggest the standard is that we not blog about anything we wouldn't say to our spouses' faces.... To wit, actual Wo household quote

Mother feeding the infant .. toddler just put to bed. Mother says to father:
Yeah, right. Get off your butt. Put the kettle on for tea. Run the bath. Give it up there book-reader!

... I better turn in my librarian badge, I suppose.

May I suggest that a post titled "My Ass" should win "Best Title of a Post" Award?

Hell no, you're teaching him the value of delaying pleasure using the book reading as a model since obviously book reading is so pleasurable... Or turning him on to a new media, as we are so encouraged to do, in the form of water.

In the kettle! In the bath!
As a liquid! As a gas!

(take that, Geisel.)

Hop to it P-man. The book will be there when you get back.

In my house it would be "Woman, put down the damn computer." But he wouldn't dare.

Oh, please. Don't you know there wouldn't BE any librarians if they were exhausted to death by having to do everything for their offspring?

You and Kittenpie should start a librarian rap/burlesque show, with whips.

I like HBM's suggestion. Rapping librarians would quite entertaining. The burlesque and whips would just be pure gravy. I'll be the crazy mommyblogger in front waving a fist full of dollar bills :)
