The Mister Takes Over - Part 1

I can't tell you how many times James has asked to write a blog post for my readers. But if you know James in real life, you know how creative, over the top and funny he is. Having said that, I can admit that I have to censor him a bit because boy, he can be a handful. Instead of giving him free range on WMM, I decided to give him some questions and let him run wild with those. And heads up, there was a set of fake answers but TRUST ME, you don't want to read those. 
 
 

First things first, how do you feel about being married to a "blogger"?
It's great that you have an outlet for your creative side and I am impressed at how you have grown nothing into something I have enjoyed reading on a daily basis. 

What should Wife Mommy Me readers know about me that they might not know?
You readers should know that you put a lot of work into your blog. You put a lot of work into everything you do and I love that about you.

I'm pretty much a hot mess 24/7. What is one bad habit I have that drives you crazy?
You eat all of the good stuff in the house. I don't know if it's because you grew up with two brothers or what. You are the finisher. Being at home gives you more time to eat the good stuff.  
 
 
How have you seen me change since marriage?
You've changed so much, but remained who are at the core. It's fun to watch how you priorities have shifted and the things that make you happy. You went from partying like a rock star to finger paint and play dates. What I love the most is what a happy, fun-loving person you are and that hasn't changed.

What's been the most difficult part of parenthood? 
I feel guilty leaving the house if Connor is awake. It's hard to enjoy doing anything fun that doesn't involve him. It's also been tough not having more alone time with you.
 
 
I'm the President of the One and Done club. How do you feel about Connor being an only child?
I feel some guilt for not giving Connor a sibling. I do like the idea of being able to give all our time and attention to him. It's worked really well so far. He's such a good kid, it would be hard for the next one to stack-up.
 
Describe yourself in 5 words.
Bold, logical, caring, loving and selfless.  
 
There you have it... a little peek into James' mind. Now it's your turn to ask the questions! Leave a question for James in the comment section below. He will be answer those in The Mister Takes Over - Part 2 scheduled for next month!

    1. Oh man, I couldn't imagine James having an entire blog of his own. He is just too much.

  2. Agreed ^ This was awesome and a lot of fun to read. I will have to see if I can brainstorm up a question and leave it later.

    I laughed so hard at the you eat all the good stuff comment. I think my husband would agree completely. Almost 24 hour access gives you plenty of chances though!

    1. Thanks Erica. He did have fake answers and I'm sure those would have cost me readers.

  4. Ha! I think it would be so fun to have my fiance guest post but I could never get him to. It's so great that your husband did, and even propositioned it himself!

    1. Chelsea, sneak it on him. Ask him a question a day and just compile them after a week and BAM! you have a post.

  8. Here's my question:
    James, if they made a movie about your life, who would you choose to play you and who would play Stephanie?

    1. Good question! I'll ask him this next go round.

  9. If I can get Scott on board, I'm totally stealing this! I've asked him a few times to do something like this but he always politely declines. Maybe if he reads the questions and answers he'll be more inclined. :)
    The answer about eating all the good stuff. Dead. I bet Scott says that same thing about me. I'm home all day! Asking me not to eat all the good stuff is like taking a kid to Toys R Us and asking them to pay no attention to all the toys. Psh. Please.

    My question for James: What's something you enjoy doing for Stephanie that she may not otherwise do for herself?

  11. That's one great guy you have there!! This post was so much fun to read. It's always great to hear from the men who usually stay behind the scenes. I'm totally going to do this if I can get Mr. Courtney on board. Hope you guys are having a great week!! XO

    1. Tell him all the cool blogger guys are doing it. Because I'm mean if he can't be won over with peer pressure, then you don't have a chance.
