I've known this for a while, but he's been particularly awesome this past weekend.
On Friday I got home, and dumped on him that he and Kosh should cook dinner (it wasn't that way in my head at the time. I'd been pondering that they would miss out on Sunday dinner cooking, part of our routine, because of Faire, and trying to come up with a solution, but on further reflection with the understanding that he can't read my mind that's certainly how it came off). He rolled with it, and came up with a dinner plan, sent me to the store for ingredients and got started.
While they were cooking I set to work gathering our garb, as I'm progressing through he pokes his head into the bedroom. "So Kosh got a lesson in kitchen fire safety..."
There had been a pool of grease (or other flamables) in the bottom of the stove that caught fire Groblek had calmly assesed the situation, dealt with it and turned it into a teaching moment for Kosh all while I was blisfully unaware. Incidently in case of a small containable fire steps are:
1) Stay calm
2 for kids) tell the nearest adult "Yes, really you can always interupt with this information"
2 for adults) assess the situation
3) extinguish the fire
4) air out and clean up
In this case that involved removing the rack (with mitts) to better see the situation, and the kitchen fire extinguisher (also make sure you have a fire extinguisher, our garage extinguisher got moved to the kitchen until we can get the kitchen one replaced).
Groblek then finished cooking using the toaster oven. We had a pleasant dinner (hotdogs broccoli, seasond by Kosh, and beans) and cleaned out the oven.
Then Saturday morning we discovered lice. We'd had suspicions, but I caught one, so we had them confirmed. He ran out for treatment while I got us ready for the rest of the weekend, we shampooed, and I escaped to a meeting at church while he wrangled Kosh and got a preliminary comb through and laundry, and packing of bedding to make sure we didn't have to worry about leaving unexpected "friends " in the bedding at Groblek's parents place done.
Then we had a lovely time keeping our heads away from everyone at Battymaiden's wedding. It was a fabulous celebration with dancing love laughter and games. Groblek looked particularly fetching, and we got to dance together a good bit while Kosh played with new friends.
