Super-hubby strikes again.

Over the weekend -- Saturday specifically -- I overbooked myself. I had planned to have a table and sell stuff a "Mom-to-mom sale." For those who are un-initiated, a Mom-to-mom sale is like a giant rummage sale at a church or school; each mom purchases a table space (usually for about $25), and sells used kids' clothes, toys, etc. It's a great way to get rid of old stuff and make a little money. And a great way to buy used kid clothes at great prices!

Anyway, the first thing I figured out was that I was going to need help setting up at 6:30 a.m. Saturday morning. I have herniated disc in my lower back, and it has been acting up lately, so lifting is a no-no. Hubby said he'd come with the kids at the crack of dawn and help set up. Good hubby.

Then, earlier in the week, I found out I needed to attend a funeral for the passing of my friend's dad. And I wasn't missing that because of my mom-to-mom sale. I have my priorities straight! So, hubby said that he would arrive at the sale (kids in tow, again) at about 11 a.m. so that I could get home to change, then go to the funeral. Great hubby.
So, I considered this busy Saturday, but my hubby reconsidered these crazy logistics. He came back to me and said, "This plan doesn't make any sense. I'd have to come to the mom-to-mom sale TWICE with the kids. I'll just do the mom-to-mom sale by myself. Just drop off the kids before you leave for the funeral." Introducing... Super-hubby!

Yes, my husband ran a table at a mom-to-mom sale all by himself. And... he made MORE MONEY than I EVER made at ANY mom-to-mom sale (and I've done a LOT of sales!). He had the magic touch!

His friends wanted to know if he got any single moms' phone numbers...

He claims innocence...
