And Justice For All!! - All Moms Please Read!

A man was sick and tired of going to work every day while
His Wife stayed home. He wanted her to see what he went through so he prayed

"Dear Lord: I go to work every day and put in 8 hours
while my wife merely stays at home. I want her to know
what I go through, so please allow her body to switch with
mine for a day. Amen."

God, in his infinite wisdom, granted the man's wish. The next
morning, sure enough, the man awoke as a woman. He arose,
cooked breakfast for his mate, awakened the kids, set out their
school clothes, fed them breakfast, packed their lunches, drove
them to school. Came home and picked up the dry cleaning, took
it to the cleaners and stopped at the bank to make a deposit.
Went grocery shopping, then drove home to put away the
groceries, paid the bills and balanced the check book.
He cleaned the cat's litter box and bathed the dog.
Then it was already 1 P.M.
and he hurried to make the beds,
do the laundry, vacuum, dust, and sweep and mop the
kitchen floor. Ran to the school to pick up the kids and got
into an argument with them on the way home.
Set out milk and cookies and got the kids organized to do their homework,
then set up the ironing board and watched TV while he did
the ironing. At 4:30 he began peeling potatoes and washing
vegetables for salad, breaded the pork chops and snapped
fresh beans for supper.
After supper, he cleaned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher,
folded laundry, bathed the kids, and put them to bed. At 9 P.M.
he was exhausted and, though his daily chores weren't finished,
he went to bed where he was expected to make love which he
managed to get through without complaint.
The next morning, he awoke and immediately knelt by the bed
and said,

"Lord, I don't know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to envy
my wife's being able to stay home all day. Please, oh please,
let us trade

The Lord, in his infinite wisdom, replied, "My son, I feel you have
learned your lesson and I will be happy to change things back
to the way they were. You'll just have to wait nine months,

"You got pregnant last night."

I have seen this before and I never stop finding it completely amusing and appropriate. Thanks for sharing!

I do love this.
But I guess my hubby works pretty hard outside the home and I know I could not do his job-so I am happy to continue doing what I am doing.I'm pretty sure he knows what is involved in my day--I can tell by how he takes off like a bat out of hell when he is finished after having taken over for me for one day.;)

A friend of mine sent this one my way the other day in e-mail. I think it is HILARIOUS!!! :o)

Cecily R 26 October, 2007 13:08

HA! That's funny. Jon is pretty great about acknowledging what I do everyday. He's flat out told me he doesn't think he could do it. When he says that it carries me for a few days before I start feeling overwhelmed and ornery again! :)

You are so wrong for this!
The second I read "The next
morning, sure enough, the man awoke as a woman." I fell out laughing...

Have you heard this one?
