Mel and I have been married for 10 years and she still gives me chills. I am head over heels for her. When I speak with others about her, I often say, �I�d do anything for her.� But now that I have three children (8, 5, and 10 months) I�m starting to realize that�s not really the case. Children have placed me in situations where I�ve been asked to do things for another person that I�d never do for anyone else, including my wife.

For example, I plan to never:

1.     Stick my face in her butt to check if she�s poopy.

2.     Allow her to go poo while I take a bath.

3.     Forgive her for punching me in the crotch while shopping at Target.

4.     Forgive her for stomping on my crotch while I lounge on the sofa.

5.     Argue with her as to whether or not I can smell her fart.

6.     Allow her to stand on my head while we watch a movie in an attempt to get her to shut up.

7.     Fish her poop out of a bathtub.

8.     Tug open the back of her pants to check if her butt was wiped good enough.

9.     Pay to get her face painted at the farmer�s market and then be understanding when she cries because it wasn�t pretty enough.

10. Explain to church members that the reason she is on the floor throwing a fit is because she didn�t get enough sleep. (In this case I�d probably just pretend I didn�t know her.)

11. Be understanding if she threw my wallet in the toilet in an attempt to be funny.

12. Allow her to bury her face in my chest for the sole purpose of wiping her boogers on my shirt.

What are some of the things you do for you kids but would never do for your partner?
