this has come up soooo very often in our relationship.
let's remind ourselves that i rarely fuss about The Mr. on my blog. & he has the endearing monaker: best husband of bunko. see here, here, & here.
however, i have been guilty of needing affirmation. i'm sure we've all been guilty of saying: i'm a bad mom....or....i don't feel attractive. & there have been countless other statements i've made wanting some response.(not all of the "am i pretty enough" variety) but how 'bout this number, taken from actual conversation tonight:
me: i'm worried about her dr. appt tomorrow
him: why? what did you read in that book just now? [AAP's Caring for your Child from birth to age 5]
me: i pointed out 3 things i have some concern about, that i'm not in the mood to discuss right now b/c it's probably nothing.... but enough that i've been concerned.
him: ..........................rolled over.
in these times of needing affirmation, is it human nature to:
because i'm really wanting to know!
