Well, you told us you liked this whole Stacy + Barry video thing so I’m throwing another one at you this week. I promise it won’t be an every Saturday thing, but we had the opportunity for some peace and quiet and so we took it. A few of you asked about how we approach household chores – how we decide whether Stacy or Barry is going to do certain tasks. You asked…we answered. As with last week’s post on marriage, this is raw, unedited and totally off-the-cuff.
You’ll think we sound like the Cleavers being interviewed. Picture it with me: Ward and June sitting on a lovely couch, interviewed by a nice early 60’s reporter. It goes something like this:
Reporter: “Mrs. Cleaver, why don’t you let Ward do the cooking?”
June: “Why ever would he want to cook? He doesn’t even know where to find the pots and pans *chuckles*”
Ward: “June, you make a good point. I don’t do any cooking around the house, but I sure do like it when you make that special pot roast of yours. Mmmm, delicious.”
Reporter: “There you have it, folks. What every person wants to know about the Cleavers.”
Okay, okay – maybe we’re not that traditional. As this video points out, we work in our strengths. In our case, it just so happens those strengths also happen to mostly fall along the lines of where traditional male/female roles are. So, before you get up on your high horse and call me sexist – Stacy is welcome to mow the yard, fix the cars, do a home renovation or any other “manly” activity whenever she wants. She just doesn’t want. 🙂 Same goes with most of her duties – I know how to change a diaper, wash laundry, iron and I’ve even been known to make a pretty mean dish of fried rice. Here’s what works for us…since you asked. ;0)
