Communication Complications

I am fairly certain that at some point I have broached this topic before on my blog. Communication Complications. Definition - the act of being unable to communicate with others. Not hearing/understanding what others say.

Jeremy Vincent suffers from this.

For instance:
"Honey I would love to sleep for longer than an hour tonight" hits Jeremy's ears as "Hey, why don't you lay down and go into a coma and not get up for 12 hours so I can do everything alone ............ again!"

"Can you hold the baby so I can take a shower" means "I'm just going to hide in the bathroom so I can be neglectful to my family. The fact that I STINK doesn't have anything to do with it."

"I haven't eaten a bite all day long" translates to Mr. Vincent as "Hey why don't you make you and Colby something to eat, not make anything for me, and then let me watch you eat while my stomach feasts on my intestines from hunger!"

That's fine dear................two can play this game.

Dr Lyons said "Postpartum healing usually takes 4-6 weeks before you can resume intimate activities." This hit my ears as "4-6 MONTHS minimum!"

Brooke, you are so funny!! I love reading your posts. :)

I would LOVE to babysit anytime so you can take a shower, eat, sleep...whatever! Just call me and I would be happy to come hold that sweet baby while you have some "Brooke time". As for the 4-6 month thing...that's hilarious:o)

Ditto Heather's comment for me, but it could't be anytime soon cause I've got the sniffly-snots :(

Girl, I am with you on husband hating today (have you seen my FB status from EARLY this morning)! If men only had half the hearing abilities of women, we might be in business. Then again, sometimes I know Chris hears me, but somehow it just doesn't register with his brain what I'm saying. Good luck!
