Do Not Let Him!
If you love him tell him to keep his day job. You do not want to see your husband break a hip just to save a bit of money on your next painting project. I've heard it time and time again, "I don't want him climbing up there" or in some cases "I don't want her climbing up there". Whoever wears the pants matters little. Just stay off the ladders!
Let Benji's tackle your next painting project.
