(see how happy I am?!?!?) (I'm SO happy!!)
As of today, we have been married nine months and six days. That makes us some kind of marriage experts, don't you think? After all, nine months is a very long time in a narrow-minded world that revolves around me. (Don't worry, I still suffer from youngest-child syndrome) And since I know you are all wondering, "How do they stay so happy?" "How do they keep things fresh?" I give to you, the secret to our happy marriage:
1. Let me sleep. A lot.
When sleep-deprived, I often become delirious and mutter incoherent grumblings under my breath. Or I mistakenly think I am superbly hilarious and will make jokes all the night long. Or I might even become bitterly angry for no good reason. Or I may find something terribly ridiculous to cry about. There's no predicting just which of these scenarios may take place so it is better to be safe and let me sleep. A lot.
2. Feed me.
When hungry, I lose all ability to make rational decisions or focus on anything at all. And I may lash out at anyone holding a chocolate bar. I am not a good hungry person.
3. Surround me with babies.
But don't babies make everything happy? As long as they are not crying. Or peeing my leg. (Don't worry Suzi, I still love Cody)
This is a very simple, three-step formula that is proven to bring peace and joy around the world. (You know, the one that revolves around me)
