Robot Wives are Mostly Nice

The boys are watching Dave install a new screen door at Grandma and Grandpa's house. (They wanted a new door just because the old one started locking them out all the time. Whatever.)

During this time, I have learned that Nathan has a wife! A robot wife. He built it himself. (Yes, he does watch Phineas and Ferb. No, I don't think they have ever built a wife on the show.) His wife doesn't let him have sawhorses but she does let him have a tractor. His wife also wants him to touch the toolbox.

This is all news to me. He has kept this under wraps until now. I'm just glad that I'm not the only one enforcing some restrictions around here anymore. Maybe he'll listen to his robot wife since he built her and all.

The next time he doesn't like what I have to say... I can just "remind" him that his wife says "You have to eat your vegetables."

I can work with this.

This post made me laugh so hard I couldn't come up with anything schnazzy to say.

Funny! I say run with it, it could work. Good luck. :)

I love Phineas & Ferb, and I am so glad my kids like to watch it. Clever show, clever writing - and so excellent that you have a robot-daughter-in-law!
