I was weighing myself because I’m pregnant and it was Monday. I lead a very exciting life, I know.
Brian: “I wonder when you’ll weigh as much as me?”
Me: “What? I’ll never weigh as much as you. You’re always going to be fatter than me. Always.”
Brian: “Oh yeah? Let’s see then.”
I write down my new weight for this week. On average, I’ve been gaining about 2 pounds a week for a while now.
Brian then weighed himself. To my horror, it was only about 3 pounds heavier.
Me: “I don’t think so! You didn’t eat enough for dinner! Here, have this muffin.”
Brian: “See?! Only about another week and a half and we’ll be the same!”
Me: “Hang on, let me pee and I’ll weigh myself again. I probably have a few pounds of pee in here.”
Brian: “But now you know how I feel!”
Me: “Please, Brian, tell me how it feels to be you. Because this is so the same.’
Brian: “…it feels awesome?”
Me: “Yes. My swollen hands and feet feel awesome. So does your baby’s head pushing on my cervix. Do you know what that feels like?”
Brian: “…the opposite of awesome?”
Me: “Now get in the kitchen and go eat some muffins. But make sure to save me one. Or ten.”
Fast forward to last night – another Monday night weigh-in.
Ladies and gentlemen, it’s happened. Brian and I now weigh the same.
He did an odd sort of happy dance. I got into a sumo stance, pushed him over, and sat on him.
It felt awesome.
Awww that was so cute! When are you due love?
August 11. Soooon.
The family that shares boxer shorts together stay together.
Indeed. I commendeered his comfy pajama pants long ago.
I’m approaching my husband’s weight slowly but surely… I should buy some muffins…
Everyone can always use some more muffins.
So funny!!! 😃
I don’t think it’s quite fair. Brian should also have to attach another human to him when he weighs himself.
Good point. As I don’t have a spare human, I’ll duct tape the cat to his midsection.
Ha, sitting on him is good revenge, but you’ll have even better revenge when you lose 15-20 pounds of baby and baby by-products shortly after birth. Something he can’t do… :)
Very true. My body is more amazing than his, for sure.
Such a cute and funny story!! My ex and I had a lot if fun times like this when I was pregnant!! Have a happy & healthy pregnancy!
