Oh No He Didn't!

A week before Mother's Day I asked my husband what he was getting me for Mother's Day. His answer didn't really surprise me when he said, "I wasn't planning on getting you anything, you're not my mother."  (He should have known that was the wrong answer.) I was hoping he would say, "What would you like?"  So, I dropped the subject and never mentioned it again.

On Mother's Day I got up and went into the kitchen to make coffee. I saw this from a distance propped up by the coffee pot. I'm thinking iPad, Nook, Kindle, etc.?


I'm thinking too, what a sweet husband I have and that I'm going to have to reward him some way. Unzipping the case this is what it turned out to be.



                                    Oh no, he didn't!!!!! TOOLS????

In a nice way I asked him later, why tools.  His answer, "I got tired of you using mine and misplacing them."  (Another wrong answer.)  What do you think I got him for Father's Day?

Smiles,
Christine

I'd actually like that gift. I think. (I got a card because, you know, I'm not his mother. He got a card because, you know, he's not my father.) I am wondering what you gave him...
