- Some husband likes Reality TV
- Some guy is still wearing black Wal-Mart jeans from 1997
- Some husband who loved the Twilight series (trust me, he doesn't, he is just trying to earn brownie points with his wife)
Then, I see a post from my lovely... supportive... wonderful wife...

Re: Tell your DH's (or DW's) secrets!

1) My DH attends Chinese Kindergarden (under the pretense of helping our DD) and actually feels competition from the other 4yr olds to bet them in their assignments and class performance.
2)I find pictures of him on the digital camera that he's taken himself, posing different hair styles!
3)He stays up till the wee hours of the morning watching Chinese cartoons.
But he does write the best blog ever

Me: So hey, I was on the China Adopt Talk forum today.
Wife: Oh, how did you get to the forums?
Me: Uh, I just registered a user account... its open to anyone who registers. Its a public website.
Wife: Oh, I didn't know you were on there.
Me: Ummm, you know I registered because you told me to, so I could tell someone how to blog in China.
Me: Yea, and apparently... I "pose for hair pictures"?
Wife: What? You read my post?!
Me: Uh-huh. And I pose for pictures?!
Wife: How DARE you read my post!
Me: Uh, because you posted it. And I POSE for pictures?!
Wife: Those ARE PRIVATE messages!
Me: No, no they aren't. Its a public form. Which you posted on. To thousands of users. That I pose for hair pictures.
Wife: You can't READ MY POSTS!
Me: Yes, I can. And so can anyone else on the forums. And I don't pose for hair pictures!
Wife: I can't even LOOK at you right now!
Me: What?! What did I DO?!
Well, I think I DO write the best blog... next to this one of course. :-)
Now, as for #1 above ...
Yes, I do take JR. Kindergarten class with my adopted daughter. And I would dare say that more adoptive parents should do the same! Even our other daughter has started going to Chinese School to help support her sister. Now, is there a little girl there in a Red Dress who is a snot nosed little know it all?! Yes! Absolutely! Dose she need to be put in her place? YES! Oh she sits there all cute and innocent looking... but you can see it in the smirk of her smile... she loves being the smartest one in the class... :-) Kidding, shes a lovely little teachers pe... er, little student.
As for #2 above...
Yes, I did take pictures of my hair. Because I had long hair, and cut it all off for our daughter. I think that is a fine reason to take pictures of my hair before I loose it all. Did I have a big ceremony with the family, keep all the hair in a brown paper bag for weeks on end in my room and cry every night when I went to bed? No. Okay, maybe just a little... crying... but c'mon, my hair was gone!
As for #3 above...
Yes, I do watch Chinese cartoons until the wee hours of the morning. But that's only because I don't have anything else to watch! Actually I found a website where I can download Chinese TV. So now I've got some Chinese A-TEAM type shows and other stuff, as well as some cheezy Kung-Fu shows! So HA! I'm not *just* watching Chinese Cartoons!
... hmmmm... maybe this isn't really helping any... I'm going to stop posting now.
Oh, but one last thing before I leave... notice that all 3 things are for my adopted child? I guess that makes it OK then. 'Cuz after all, I think I'd do anything for my children... even going back to Kindergarten, cutting off my hair, and yes, watching foreign language cartoons. :-)
