As I’ve mentioned before, my kids and I aren’t always the best at communicating with each other. It often seems as though we are speaking two completely different languages.
And then there are the times where, instead of not understanding what I’m saying, they’ve understood it perfectly. Which is to say that they understood what it is that they wanted to hear, and not necessarily what I actually said.
When I read Katie’s post over on Being Pregnant, about what she says versus what her husband hears, I really started to think about how often this happens in our life. So I thought I would put together a list of the most common occurrences. At least one of these things happens on a daily basis in our house.
Check it out below, and then tell me, does this happen in your family? Is there something you would add to the list?
And stay tuned, I’m working on a “They Said/Mom Heard” edition, too!
