The Truth About Marriage (well, mine, anyway)
we're not very good at teamwork, especially when it comes to the kids. my husband is entirely too concerned with whether or not the kids like him. that leaves me to be the bad guy, the one to always say no to fun things, make them brush their teeth, clean their messes and go to bed. this really drives me nuts, but given the fact that all of our children are girls, i know it won't be long before they're mostly just embarrassed by everything that he does. just knowing that his day is coming gives me something to look forward to.
i hate the fact that he makes up words, tries to comment on things he knows nothing about, he walks around singing, making up the words to songs (but believes they're the right words), he tries to dance which involves lifting his knees to his neck and pointing his fingers in different directions, but i put up with it because i love him. also, he puts up with the fact that i'm a control freak, i hate sharing my feelings, i don't like to cuddle, i yell. i spend way too much time in the shower and i make fun of almost everything that he likes.
we're not perfect. we didn't fall in love at first site. we fight. we don't have everything in common. we annoy each other. we embarrass each other. we are happy together. we can laugh at all of our shortcomings. i'm not sure i'd really change anything. i couldn't think of anyone i'd rather share this life with.
