Musings on Marriage Signs
I sometimes wonder just what men think...well maybe not really. It's a scary dark place I'm sure! Anyway, I do try to give my husband very explicit instructions when I want something done a certain way.
He doesn't always listen....or maybe he half listens. Take folding towels for example. How hard is it to fold the towels in half, then half again and again, matching up the corners as you go? So after 25 years of marriage, I don't ask him to help fold the towels anymore. In fact I don't usually ask him to help fold anything anymore!
I think being bossy just comes with the territory of being a wife and mother. Who else can keep 10 things going at once and pull it all off with ease, except a woman? So I just laugh when my crew complains that I'm too bossy.
Of course this goes without saying....LOL!
My husband hates when I can repeat what he tells me verbatim! LOL! Amazing that he hasn't figured out that my memory is better than his! He tells me all the time that isn't what he said...sometimes I wish I had a portable tape recorder.
Anyway, you can find these signs as well as a few others in my etsy shoppe
