Expert vs. Novice

My husband is one of the funniest people I know.  He keeps me laughing so I keep him around...

This week he gave me a "day off" - after my ranting about how I don't get any "me" time - he gave me the day to do what I wanted (more on that later)

But in talking about my day, our conversation went like this:

Me: I think I should take your hours for my day off - leave at 8 am and come home around 8 pm.  This way you get a full day with Jenna and when I come home I expect her to be sleeping, the house neat, and dinner on the table.  Like I do for you.

Him: (sounding a little nervous) Really? All day? What are you going to do with all that time?

Me: I'm sure I'll figure it out.  You'll see how exhausting it is to be in charge of her all day - even when she naps well.

Him: You know you've had all year with her to know her routine and grow with her.  If I was put in charge for the full day it would be like having a novice player on the expert can't expect him to succeed.

Me: So I'm an expert? And you're a novice?

Him: Yes and Jenna is like level 20.

Me: I'm an expert!

*I was pretty much kidding with him from the start - I just want a few hours to get a mani/pedi and buy some bras! I kind of want to have lunch with the two of them since it happens so infrequently...but I liked being called an expert!
