My husband is not afraid to express his opinion - usually in a playful way. It's part of his charm.
This morning, however, he might have gone one step too far.
On the mornings that Peanut has to go to the sitter, I always put out an outfit for her to wear. This morning, I selected the outfit that our wonderful sitter bought Peanut for Christmas. It's a cute little pair of aqua-colored pants with a polka dot top with a little cartoon frog on it. It is adorable. I wanted to be sure the sitter saw Peanut wear it.
The husband apparently forgot that I showed him the outfit a month ago and told him who bought it because he expressed his opinion to the wrong person this morning.
When he dropped Peanut off, he pulled her out of the carrier and said, "Isn't this the ugliest outfit you've ever seen?"
Oh yes he did.
Our sitter's face must have given her away because the husband quickly realized what he had done.
He apologized repeatedly and thankfully our sitter has a good sense of humor (and is very forgiving) because she just laughed at him. He was mortified and called to tell me his faux pas and I, of course, shared the funny (albeit embarrassing) tale with everyone at work.
When I picked Peanut up, our sitter was still laughing about my husband and brushed off my apologies.
So I think we all learned a lesson today. I'm going to make sure my husband knows who bought which of Peanut's outfit and he's going to maybe not give his opinion so freely anymore.
(I would have put a picture of Peanut in the outfit but it is in the wash right now because there was an accident involving an incompetent diaper.)
