This is what I live with, people.

Beau is one "wild and crazy guy."

He has calmed down quite a bit over the years as he's matured, but every now and then, he reverts back to his early years and antics.

Here are just a few examples of the antics I speak of:

* In our first few years of marriage, his idea of fun times was sneaking into the bathroom, reaching over the top of the shower curtain, and pouring a pitcher filled with ice & water on me while I was taking a shower. Don't worry. There was payback.

* He made up a character called "Mr. Eraserhead" by contorting his face and flailing his arms about. It was quite creepy. He got his kicks by chasing me around the house as this crazed lunatic.

* If I ever told him I had to go to the bathroom, massive tickling ensued. He was evil and quite a merciless tickler, causing tears and loss of breath. He still is. Just ask my girls.

I should have seen all this coming when, as friends, I went to kiss him good-bye on the cheek, and he quickly turned his head and kissed me smack dab on the lips. Sneaky snake.

Last night he was back to his old tricks.

Imagine La Petite Belle's surprise when her 10 "licks" was just that. Literal licks all over the face and one on the tummy (to grow on). Quite disturbing and disgusting. I know. He's chased me down to do the same to me. Yuck.

but you wouldn't trade him for anything or anyone, right? Laughter. . .its the very best medicine! and your girls will have memories of their awesome dad the rest of their lives

I knew I liked Beau!!!

I had to laugh at this because I have been known, in early marriage, to throw cold water on my husband over the shower curtain!!

I have also been known to tickle my kids breathless.

And one of my favorite tricks, handed down from my dad, was the "around the world" kiss. Where you have to sneak up to the person and lick the whole way around their face before they can stop you!!!

I have to admit, the licking of the I can't handle that. My DH stuck the tip of his tongue up my nose one time, and I almost puked. Ughhhhh

BUT, the memories and the laughter stick around a LOOOOT longer than the slobber. So that makes it worthwhile.

And besides Jim Carey, I'm not sure if I've every seen anyone able to shape their face like that! haha

Love this post! My hubby has always been a little goofy acting too, though not as much these days with the pressures of life in the ministry. So good to know there are some other fun-loving men out there who show their affection in silly ways!

No offense, but I'm glad he's yours and not mine! lol Although I imagine there's never a boring moment around your house!

He sounds exactly like my older brother :)

And we used to do that pitcher of ice water thing to each other in college...I always got suspcious when things got a little too quiet in the bathroom because that usually meant someone was trying to douse me :)

Oh I'm glad to hear you say there was payback for that first one LOL!!!
