What my husband says and what I think he means…

    I know I read this before and was going to comment then and totally forgot! Sorry :-/ Dad brain.

    Glad I saw you posted it again though!! Forgot how much I loved it! Properly made me laugh so thanks.

    From a guys point of view I think you might be right from numbers 6 to 10!!

    Number 1 is probably more “I feel guilty about nit helping you out enough but I’m a guy and won’t admit it so here’s some chocolate”

    Number 2 is probably more “you’re totally becoming a mum….have a break ‘cos you’re going to go crazy and that won’t help either of us”

    Number 3 is definitely a mix of 1 and 2 (my answers)

    Number 4 “I don’t do enough…I know I don’t…I don’t want it held against me at a later date so I’ll offer that way I don’t look bad”

    Number 5. You could be right on number 5. That sentence from me is usually “I’m knackered when will this stop my patience is low can you deal with it?”

    That being said that’s how my mind usually work and I’m reminded constantly that I’m not a normal guy! 😉
