A husband, who has six children, begins to call his wife “mother of six” rather than by her first name. The wife, amused at first, chuckles.

Finally, while attending a party with her husband, he jokingly yells out, "Mother of six, I think it's time to go!" The wife immediately shouts back, "I'll be right with you, father of four!"
