    So I made some cookies tonight. The most delicious sugar cookies in history of sugar cookies, just in case anyone was wondering what they were.. [​IMG] Anyways, I went to go see the hubs at work tonight, he asked me to bring him a fresh blanket and pillow case because he has to stay overnight. Well I brought some cookies, too. To share, you know, with all the other boys that have duty tonight too. He looks at me, kind of panicked... And asked, "Can you save those for us?" Hmm.... What makes him think if I bring cookies to work, that there wouldn't also be a plate waiting for him when he gets home? Or maybe he just doesn't the other boys at work and doesn't think they are worthy of baked goods? Am I embarrassing? Like when mom's bring weird stuff to share at parties.. [​IMG]

    Could be he REALLY likes your cookies and is afraid that out of the whole batch he'll only get a couple.

    My hubby always gets upset to see his homemade cookies going to someone else, even though he gets as many as he wants! [​IMG] He just loves cookies and wants them all for himself [​IMG] Our grandchildren fondly call him the cookie monster [​IMG] Just take your husbands actions as a compliment [​IMG]

    I don't like to share my goodies either.

    My wife used to make a big dinner and bring it up to work for our "date" night once a week during the busy season. Right down to the china and cloth napkins. My crew was always ribbing me about the "date" night... but working 16s made home life kind of tight.. Then after a while my wife started bringing a little more and a little more, and pretty soon "date" night turned into my wife being a catering service. I put an end to it and we did it every other week, but she'd bring goodies for the guys n gals once in a while.

    Kinda killed our privacy lol.

    So I totally get this.

    My DH does that over my deviled eggs. I usually take them for every holiday gathering. He HAS to eat several before we leave, just in case by the time he gets to them in the food line, they're gone.

    [​IMG] mylittlechickpea, you are so funny and cute! LOL i love BYC so much, everyones posts are so great! I wouldnt worry to much about the hubby, they do all sorts of funny things that we can not explain, kind of like our chickens i guess? my friend used to have a saying that has helped me when my DH makes me want to [​IMG] - "women are crazy and men are stupid" no offense guys or girls, just think its kind of funny and some times it helps me - as women we tend to try to read to deeply into things that our DH's say or do when who really knows! [​IMG] goodluck and aloha
