Outlander BedtimeStories. #Hubservations while I am his Audiobook

Our first round of Bedtimes stories started because of the initial Droughtlander and my husband’s inability to wait for anything. Like ANYTHING – when he knows the answer is right there.  I only have to tell him.  He really enjoyed the TV show & knew the books were out there – however not being a reader – there was a problem…unless he could get someone to read them to him. WELL GEE!


I’d be THRILLED to…like really!

#BedtimeStories were born.  Sometimes I read and he is silent & enjoys. Sometimes, he is contemplative. Sometimes there are tears or laughter. Often…smart ass comments erupt from him. As I read “Jamie gingerly….blah de blah Claire blah.”  He pipes up with “Doesnt he do EVERYTHING gingerly?  Get it?”  Yeah MasterDad joker, I get it.

I stopped keeping my phone in my room at night around A Breath of Snow & Ashes so I haven’t tweeted his witty remarks as they come.  They are jotted down in a note book…maybe slightly illegible but we’ll wait till we are done reading Written in My Own Hearts Blood to do that shall we?

If you have NOT read the books. Stop reading now.  Hubbychilds comments are SPOILERS.  Not just little spoilers…BIG WHOPPING RUIN YOUR OUTLANDER EXPERIENCE SPOILERS!  If you havent read the books…and you read ANY further than this line. It is your own damn fault. You made a choice and it was probably the wrong one. So…with that being said, you are not allowed to leave comments or send me DMs scolding me for throwing spoilers out to the world.  Just because the cookies are there…didn’t mean you had to eat them.

The following hubservations are from Voyager on up to a piece of  A Breath of Snow & Ashes.  So again, I warn you. SPOILERS ARE AHEAD.  Can you tell someone has smacked my nose with a newspaper over this before? Uh-huh.

As we closed the pages of Dragonfly In Amber…my husband made an interesting observation.  For the record…Me…Diana…and Caitriona…and any other girl person in a Disney movie (thats fairly recent so it might be an age thing)

This was more than a couple years ago now…so…the list is longer
We pick up somewhere in Voyager.


Lover of the craziness. Explains a lot eh?


Sometimes I wondered if he read ahead on me…and then…reality
I wasn’t afraid of dreaming it…why should he be?


Seriously.  I hate when he guesses right & I have to NOT yell it at him
Its like Claires own version of Rock, paper, scissors. 


Its a pretty specific Canadian reference there folks…them Newfoundlanders. LOVE.
I only laughed because…it was funny.

You know…my sweet hubbychild has always been a little jealous of Jamie.  Calling him my boyfriend etc.  I have compiled some of his comments throughout storytime…enjoy.


He really did say that…I was there. 

Lets take a look at what he thought during Drums of Authumn shall we?  

He’s pretty???
My husband was a chef in the military…he had 2 bears (different times &locations) jump onto his kitchen trailer…both times…he screamed like a girl and ran out the back door.  Like a smart man would. 
Saying it might have got him a smack.


Uh-huh…I’m SURE that is what he meant.  He didn’t. 


The “Willies a lil snot” chronicles…by my husband


I think he has a HUGE point here…HUGE…biggest point ever…not like any other point. 


He’s a fan of dirty lady mouths…since you know…his wife has one. 
This is the moment…everyone was yelling the same thing at Jamie…UGH. Men! 


You may be able to tell…my husband doesn’t like it when people don’t communicate.  He notices a common theme with Claire.

At least he knows the character well enough to know…Drinking helps. A lot.


There is one character over all the others my husband feels bad for…its poor wee Rog. It sure entertains me to listen to him yak about him. And he has a face now. Richard Rankin…we adore you. We feel sorry for you…but we adore you. 





I believe its an accurate assumption…don’t you???


I know you probably feel like meh…this is good. I read enough. I don’t need to hear her husbands ramblings any more…but…since I planned to write this all out…I’m doing it.  Feel free to bookmark this and come back later to finish up…


but I am powering through this!


We are at Fiery Cross…you know the one. No…let my hubbychild remind you. FC001



Sometimes he says stuff that he KNOWS he is going to get smacked for…but yet…he continues.  Never letting fear or common sense stop him.





Yes…all the characters get their own voice.  Im a method reader




Jimbo=Jamie…in case you missed his disdain for his perceived perfection





He is a dad…and over 40…its a part of their evolution apparently.




I think it botherth him…tho I keep doing it.




I am always like COME ON!  I didn’t pick up on half this shit when I read the 1st time





Now you see why I like him…his mind lives in the same gutter as mine





He loves the numerous back from the dead stories




hashtag combustakid





Things he asked that I don’t have the answers to.


Last…but not least we end with a bit of A Breath of Snow & Ashes.




I think thats an appropriatly inappropriate spot to stop.

You gotta love the guy…


Until next week…

  1. Loved these Sher! I would love to read these to my non- reader hubster but at least he is hooked on the shows. I feel like he and your hubby have a lot in common re: comments and shrewd observations. “Jem” got by me- even after multiple reads & listens. #smartypantsboys.
    Keep sharing! #thoroughlyenjoyedinontario
