Ode to a Husband


Chores around the house Kevin does when not immobilized by a broken knee: takes out the garbage, organizes the recycling, empties the compost, gives the kids baths, changes the occasional diaper, does virtually all outdoor work, sings the children off to sleep, puts CJ to bed, makes breakfast, drives the big kids to the walking school bus on his way to work, and this one, which only occurred to me on Monday--cleans the fish bowls! There's probably more I'm forgetting right now. Phew.

Maybe this will bring me and the fish closer together.

  1. I always knew he was top-notch. No more ode-worthy a man will you find hurting himself at Tuesday hockey. Though I could see a few of them fitting perfecly in a limerick.

  2. I think I will always remember the sound of Kevin's gentle voice singing all those darlings to sleep at the cabin.
