The Next Survivor Men Series

This says it all for me today:

Thanks Kelly

Six married men will be dropped on an island with one car and 3 kids each for six weeks.

Each kid will play two sports and either take music or dance classes.

There is no fast food. Each man must take care of his 3 kids; keep his assigned house clean, correct all homework, and
complete science projects, cook, do laundry, and pay a list of 'pretend' bills with not enough money.

In addition, each man will have to budget in money for groceries each week.

Each man must remember the birthdays of all their friends and relatives, and send cards out on time--no emailing.

Each man must also take each child to a doctor's appointment, a dentist appointment and a haircut appointment.

He must make one unscheduled and inconvenient visit per child to the Urgent Care.

He must also make cookies or cupcakes for a social function.

Each man will be responsible for decorating his own assigned house, planting flowers outside and keeping it presentable at all times.

The men will only have access to television when the kids are asleep and all chores are done.

The men must shave their legs, wear makeup daily, adorn himself with jewelry, wear uncomfortable yet stylish shoes, keep fingernails polished and eyebrows groomed.

During one of the six weeks , the men will have to endure severe abdominal cramps, back aches, and have extreme, unexplained mood swings but never once complain or slow down from other duties.

They must attend weekly school meetings, and find time at least once to spend the afternoon at the park or a similar setting.

They will need to read a book to the kids each night and in the morning,
feed them, dress them, brush their teeth and comb their hair by 7:00 am.

A test will be given at the end of the six weeks, and each father will be required to know all of the following information:

each child's birthday,
shoe size,
clothes size
doctor's name.

· Also, the child's weight at birth,
· length,
· time of birth,
· and length of labor,
· each child's favorite color,
· middle name,
· favorite snack,
· favorite song,
· favorite drink,
· favorite toy,
· biggest fear and
· what they want to be when they grow up.

The kids vote them off the island based on performance.

If the last man does win, he can play the game over and over and over again for the next 18-25 years eventually earning the right to be called Mother.



I think that we as mothers/wives should be thankful that God has provided all these roles for us to fulfill and be thankful for our supporting husbands who are willing to get up everyday and worry about supporting a family and trying to make enough money to pay the bills. I find the post kind of degrading towards our spouses rather than uplifting..sorry Amy ;-) I've enjoyed many of your other posts much more and couldn't help myself and comment here! Thank God that I don't have to worry about so many of the things my husband does. Dr appts, haircuts, potty training, housecleaning all seem minor compared to the daily tasks the men have to deal with.

Thanks for reading Shaun and I am sorry you took offense to this post. Anyone whos know me, knows that I have great respect for my husband. He works 6 days a week and dedicates his ony day off to serving the Lord in church. on the other side anyone who knows me knows I have a dry sense of humor when it comes to being a mom.

I made the choice to have 3 children and to be a stay-at-home so in no way am I "regretting" it or blaming my husband. It was simply a "Funny" E-mail I recieved.
And after the day I had yesterday, it fit, so I am sorry you don't like it and I have offended you.

I also do belive that God created us women to be a help to our husbands but once again, I just found the post funny, so I posted it.

Hopefully you will continue to read and thanks for your honesty. I am 26 year old women with a lot to learn in liofe still.
