After telling me that he had flipped through a book on vocations to the diocesan priesthood and I said that maybe he had missed his calling Simon responded, "definitely not, think of all the sacrifices I make that bring me closer to God by being married to you."
In response to me asking if he'd like to bathe Theo since he's never ever done it before Simon said, "no thanks, I'll go ahead and keep the streak alive."
Dropping a subtle hint regarding his opinion on how many chocolate chips I put in my chocolate chip cookies Simon said, "Julia is enjoying a chocolate CHIP cookie - emphasis on the singular."
After I bragged about Julia not waking up at all the other night, Simon responded, "I'm not impressed - we both know she's going to be 16 and crying from her bunk bed because her bottle is stuck on her braces."
Climbing into bed with a book:
Simon: this book always puts me to sleep
Grace: oh, what's it called?
Simon: Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery
On his love for coconut oil while I was making pizza dough ...
Grace: hmmm we're out of olive oil I guess I'll just use coconut oil
Simon: you may as well just use vinegar
Grace: get out
After he read a Conversations with Julia post Simon said, "no more Simon Says posts - I'm old and decrepit Jay Leno and she's fresh faced Jimmy Fallon."
After he saw me wearing a pair of his stretched out dirty white socks with a regular outfit Simon said, "sooooooo, I guess you weren't planning on making any trips to the marital bed today?"
