Trashy Shorts: I Know Where My Husband Keeps His Other Wives

Last week, my kindergartener and I were running errands together.  We were in the bank's drive-through, and I was waiting on my deposit receipt as my son enjoyed a snack in the backseat of the car. 

“Look, Mom,” he said, and I turned around to see him holding up his hand and wiggling his fingers, on which he had placed 2 circle-shaped pretzels each.

“I have 10 wives,” he said, giggling.  

I smiled and told him to keep his hand held high so I could take a picture to show his dad later.  As I was getting out my phone to do this, he continued.  “But seriously, Mom, if I had two wives, I’d have to hide one in the closet while I talked to the other one.”

I have no idea where he comes up with this stuff, but I’m kind of wondering if I should be checking the closets before sitting down for any heart-to-hearts with his dad…


  1. Ten wives? You mean ten women all nagging me at once to pick up my clothes, and fix the leaky faucet that I said I'd fix two months ago, and mow the lawn? That sounds like a fate worse than death. I think I'D be the one hiding in the closet.

    1. You guys crack me the fck up!! I was thinking the EXACT same thing, and I AM a wife. I once wrote a post on my old blog about the 10 reasons I could never be a sister wife, and I swear that dealing with the other nags was one of the top reasons. On the plus side, however, is that the other wives could take over the "wifely duties" since my girl robot in a French maid outfit with painted fingernails to do all of that hasn't been invented yet. Lord knows I'd rather eat Reese's and watch Real Housewives than participate in all that tired jazz. Ha

  2. You son sounds like a character. HAAaaa
    I'd settle for 1 Sister Wife to help me around this place!!!
