Sure bets

Moments ago as I was brushing my teeth Razor came to tell me that he loves opening a new jar of peanut butter because he can just scoop it right off the top and not have to reach in the jar. After I spit the toothpaste all lady like into the sink I asked Razor how many jars of peanut butter does he think that we buy in one year. He said probably 10 or 12.

Ladies and gentlemen, in these financially uncertain times nothing is guaranteed. Well, almost nothing. The fact that my husband will hunt me down to tell me how much he loves a new jar of peanut butter every time he opens one is guaranteed. So at least I can bank on that 10-12 times a year.

Peace of mind. It is a beautiful thing.

I'm with him. There is something oddly satisfying about being the first one to arrive at a new jar of PB!

LOL -as kids we used to fight over the new PB jar - because it had a "belly button" which as every kid knows is the tastiest part of the entire jar!!!

Too bad Mom used to buy it by the galleon - or at least really really big tubs, but even so with 6 kids and a PB loving father we went through them fairly frequently (and had really cool sandbox buckets when we got done!)

It is too funny what other people relish! Thank goodness for dependable husbands. Our older son cried when our younger was diagnosed with peanut allergy, just thinking of all those lost pb&j sandwiches!

Don't you love how husbands say the most enduring things? I love it when my hubby says his quirky little "Deanisms" as I like to call them. They always make my heart feel full, because I was blessed enough to marry him, and a smile on my face.

Love the pictures below. What a fun thing to do as a family.

I like it too - then you don't get PB all over your hand while you try to scrape the sides.

you are funny!

and I like your new header up top.

We go through a lot of PB at my house. The boys eat lots of PB&J sandwiches and I love PB cookies!

I can count on my husband to drink a gallon of milk a day!

LOL! That is too funny! and you know what i like best about that post? Is the fact that Razor takes time to realize that he enjoys that! Now that it was mentioned, i love that too... but i may have not taken the time to really enjoy it. I would have just rushed through sandwich making. I love that he took the time! I am trying so hard to be more like that. I love that!

Too funny! I just happened to open a new jar this morning while making my kids lunches, and thought how nice it was that the peanut butter was so soft and easy to spread! Also that it was nice not to get it all over my hand from having to get the bottom of the jar :) LOL

when we were kidds me and my sisters always wanted to be the first one in that jar...no matter i hated peanut butter...it would drive them crazy if i found the jar first and drew a big S on the top. i do like pb now, but the kind that is just smashed peanuts without sugar or salt. isnt it great that such a small thing can make a grown man so happy :-)

Amy Wathen said...

Yes, I love that too. Sounds to me like you need to buy the smallest jar so he can have that simple pleasure more often!

It's good to know, that some things don't change :-)

Husbands say the darnedest things. Thats why we love them.

Hi, I have been visiting your blog for awhile. I think my young friend that loves crafts and sewing may have given me a link. www.lgsm.blogspot.com is her address. I wanted to see the quilts so here I am. You have so many pretty things and a neat family. I buy Smuckers natural peanut butter now so the first one that opens it has to stir it. Not crazy about that.

HA! Glad it's the little things for him :)
