Way to start the challenge off with a hard one, Kristen!
This is definitely one of Hubby’s pet peeves with me. I don’t know why but I feel like I have to put in a dig into him when he forgets to do something for the 1000th time, or he doesn’t get the kids ready for bed the way I do. I even grit my teeth when he pulls a snack or box of cereal from the stockpile that wasn’t set to be used for another few months. I know this is all small stuff, and you shouldn’t sweat it, but it is hard for me to conquer. We discussed this during our 5th anniversary, and I promised him that I would work hard on alleviating this issue, but I don’t think I worked hard enough.
Today, I bit my tongue on the small stuff ALL DAY. I was so proud of myself and realized that it isn’t so bad. I also noticed that it did make a difference in our day; Hubby seemed more relaxed by the end of the night, and the kids seemed less agitated about bedtime.
Let’s see what tomorrow will bring.
