I have read much books and watch many different dvd’s on the difference between men and women… mom vs dad. One of my favorites is “Laugh your way to a better marriage” by Mark Gungor. The series starts with “A tale of two brains”, and it is so funny. A book I enjoyed a lot is “Men are like waffles women are like spaghetti”, by Bill and Pam Farrel.
I definitely don’t know everything about my husband, but I thought I understood his thinking pattern after pre-marriage counselling, personality tests and all this dvd’s and books. If you read “My husband, the entertainer” you might understand a bit about the personality gap between us.
Before I continue I have to say I have an excellent husband who helps me a lot with our baby. I wouldn’t be able to do everything without him.
Last week on one very busy morning before work (he dresses the baby while I finish for work), I forgot to take out clothes for baby, so he got to plan the baby’s outfit for the day.
Dropping baby off at school I see the colors of the clothes don’t fit, not at all. If I choose the clothes I look for the same colors or patterns.
When I asked him why he chose the camouflage pants with the blue shirt he answered because they fit together. I really did not understand until he explained: the shirt had a dinosaur on, so in order for baby to look for dinosaurs he has to be camouflaged, thus the camouflage pants.
I would never choose the two together, but his argument makes sense in a way. Maybe that is why the Lord created men and women so different to keep everyday life colorful and interesting. Maybe the Lord knew I need my husband to broaden my horizon, making me see things differently every now and then.
