Some words may hide others.

Last night, headache still going strong, I went upstairs to take a shower. Husband said he would take care of dinner for the boys. I was dubious, but, whatever. My head hurt too much to argue.

When I called down a while later, Husband said, "They're all set."

Imagine my surprise when I walked into the family room.

My boys, 3 and 6, eating at the coffee table. Ham sandwiches and pringles. While watching the Seattle - Chicago football game.

There are many things I miss from home. The NFL is not really one of them. Monday, Sunday, or any night football is not really one of them. Males eating pringles while watching NFL activities is not really one of them. Husband says American football is like a live chess game. I don't believe him.

The scariest part was the look on their faces. Mesmerized by padded strangers running into each other on purpose.

That's NOT what I'd call all set.

Tell your wonderful husband that I am so very very proud of him. I just wish I could have been there to add the beer drinking that goes along with football.

While that maay not be your ideal evening/dinner for the boys, I think it is good that they are experiencing a little bit of the American male Sunday ritual...we don't want them to be lost when they come visit us! :)

Football is a game of intense strategy actually >_> Provided you know the rules and get into it.
