My husband spanked me and I don’t care.

Something terrifying happened this summer.
I discovered that I’m the weakest link in our family.

It’s sad to be puny.
I begged my kid to stop rowing so hard.
We were going in circles because I couldn’t keep up.

“Oh, Mom, you’re so cute.”

“No, really. I mean it. I can’t keep up with you.
You’re too strong. Paddle with less oomph, I beg you.
I no longer have the cardiovascular capacity of an elite athlete.”

Ha ha. Like I ever was an elite athlete… but my kid doesn’t know that.

“Gee, Mom, I could paddle around the lake again. Why do you look so tired?”


I laughed tiredly and begged my kids to carry me to the car.
Fortunately, my husband took pity on me and hoisted me over his shoulder.
I muttered that I needed chocolate ice cream, and he sympathetically patted me on the butt.
Or maybe he was just copping a feel. I don’t know and I don’t care. At least I was not walking.

I’m feeling your pain on this one and I don’t even have a teenager. I’ve had to take up running (let’s be real, I jog) in order to keep up with my toddler. She wears me out. Every. Single. Day. I have no idea how you people with more than one child do it. No more for me. One and done!

PS- My husband would totally cop a feel too!

I do enjoy sitting.

I’d be happy if my husband could LIFT me, let alone cop a feel.

I must be a charter member of “Parents Who Prefer Sedentary Activities”! Sitting (in a chair, not a canoe!) has always been one of my very best things!!! LOL!

Oh I hope I never become the weakest link. LOL! I’m so competitive. But getting a spank on the butt from my hubby isn’t so bad. HA! HA!
Have a great week.

I would be thrilled if my husband could hoist me over his shoulder and cop a feel! You are clearly the master of this game.

There’s nothing wrong with being the weakest link. Especially if that’s the treatment you get! I’m sure you are the strongest at something else.
